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.
Goldenvoice released the official Coachella lineup late Jan. 24, 2013.
Phoenix, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Blur & The Stone Roses will headline the highly anticipated Coachella festival lineup, Goldenvoice announced late Thursday.
Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Postal Service and Modest Mouse are also slated to perform.
Of Monsters and Men, Franz Ferdinand and Moby will take the stages during the identical festival weekends, April 12-14 and April 19-21 at the Empire Polo Club in Indio.
A second round of tickets will go on sale at 10 a.m. Tuesday, Jan. 29.

The announcement followed weeks of leaks and rumored reports of bands that could perform at the popular Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.
In the most hotly reported rumor, the legendary Rolling Stones were expected to headline after the festival briefly appeared on the band’s mobile app. RollingStone Magazine reported Jan. 18 that the band would not appear, citing “a source close to the band.”
The band does not appear on the lineup.
