If you missed out on tickets to either weekend of Coachella, you’re in luck. You can catch many of the same bands about a month later and 1,500 miles north.
The Sasquatch Festival at the Gorge in central Washington is taking place on May 24-27. Although none of Coachella’s headliners of Stone Roses, Blur, Phoenix and Red Hot Chili Peppers will be making the trip north, the Postal Service, Vampire Weekend, Sigur Ros and the XX are listed as “Featured Artists” on the Sasquatch home page and also will perform at Coachella. The Lumineers, Father John Misty and Grimes are among the higher-profile artists that will appear at both fests.
The two non-Coachella “Featured Artists” for Sasquatch include Mumford & Sons (who played at Coachella in 2011) and hip-hop duo Macklemore and Ryan Lewis.

The lineups for two of the summer’s biggest U.S. festivals – Bonnaroo in rural Tennessee (June 13-16) and Lollapalooza in Chicago (Aug. 2-4) – have not yet announced their lineups for 2013.
With a Coachella lineup announcement looming — it’s “coming soon,” if you believe one media sponsor — let’s recap one more time who might be on that poster:

There are 94 days until weekend 1 of Coachella 2013 kicks off, but who will take the stages?
There’s still no artist line-up, but it’s never happened this early.
That’s much to the chagrin of the dozens of people who post on the Coachella Facebook page each day, begging for at least an announcement of when the announcement will come.
Don’t count on that.
In the meantime, here’s our roundup of artists who have reportedly confirmed their appearances for 2013 and evidence that exists (or doesn’t) for the persistent rumors about other artists.
The second S.S. Coachella cruise has returned to port, and reviews from the two trips are in as well.
