Sasquatch! announces a second weekend

      Less than a month after it wrapped, organizers of Sasquatch! Music Festival have already made news with a big announcement: In 2014, they'll be adding a second, non-consecutive weekend with a completely different lineup.

      According to a press release, "the festival will run May 23-25 (Memorial Day Weekend) and July 4-6 (Fourth of July Weekend) with two completely different lineups at The Gorge."

      This is the first time Sasquatch! has included more than one weekend. The non-consecutive weekend breaks ranks with other music festivals, such as Coachella, which run straight through.

      The festival, which has a reputation for booking both huge acts and up-and-coming talent in both music and comedy, draws tens of thousands of fans to George, Washington each year, and features more than 100 artists.
