Mick Jagger is Not Dead

The Sasquatch Festival completely sold out its 100,000 tickets only one week after its line-up was announced on February 7th, a new record for the long-running event, which takes place in Washington state’s The Gorge. This year’s festival will include performances by Foo Fighters, Death Cab For Cutie, Modest Mouse, the Decemberists, Bright Eyes, Wilco and the Flaming Lips. [Brooklyn Vegan]
