The annual Sasquatch! Music Festival is returning to Washington from May 27-30 with killer headliners including Florence and the Machine, The Cure, Disclosure, and more. To kick off the countdown to the fest, we checked out the lineup’s up-and-comers that we predict will shake the Gorge Amphitheatre this year. The eight artists range in style from electro-pop, hip-hop, psychedelic rock, and beyond. They were selected based on a combination of Pandora and Next Big Sound data—trajectory of station adds, spins and thumbs, viral activity across social platforms, and insights from our expert musicologists.
