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 two non-Coachella “Featured Artists” for Sasquatch include Mumford & Sons (who played at Coachella in 2011) and hip-hop duo Macklemore and Ryan Lewis.
