When: May 27th-May 30th

Where: Quincy, Washington

Why Go: About midway between Seattle and Spokane, the Gorge Amphitheater is among the most scenic concert venues in the world. Nestled in the foothills of the Cascades, on the lip of the Columbia Gorge, the mossy canyon that gives the amphitheater its name, you can gaze down on the majestic Columbia River during the festival. The view would almost be enough to upstage the festival itself if the Sasquatch! bookers didn't gather such an incredible lineup.

Must-See Acts: The Cure, Sufjan Stevens, Digable Planets, M83, Grimes, Florence + the Machine, Caribou, Four Tet, Disclosure, Major Lazer, Jamie xx, Mac DeMarco
