Confetti filled the Gorge Ampitheatre last weekend, as thousands flocked to the Eastern Washington desert for the 13th annual Sasquatch Music Festival. Outkast, M.I.A. and Chance the Rapper ruled the crowds throughout the weekend, but Shakey Graves, Lucius and Growlers attracted some of the most enthusiastic fans. With just one weekend this year to pack in as much music as possible, fans partied twice as hard. If you weren’t (or even if you were) among the happy music lovers who flooded east over Memorial Day weekend, check out our photos of some of the best of the fest.
