Up until recently, Sasquatch Music Festival has been a fixture in the Pacific Northwest, as a home to artists and musicians from all walks. 2018 saw the festival’s final edition, though, and now, Live Nation is looking to fill that void at the Gorge Amphitheatre.

“Details will follow in the weeks to come, but put it in your calendars: May 24-25-26, 2019 will see a new generation of contemporary artists carry on the tradition at this iconic Northwest institution,” Live Nation said in a recent news release.

Sasquatch has gifted the Northwest with diverse lineups since 2002, featuring artists like The Cure, Modest Mouse, Robert Plant, Outkast, Foo Fighters, Nine Inch Nails, and tons more.

It’s unclear what Live Nation’s new festival will entail, but it will provide fans with zero downtime between the end of Sasquatch 2018 and Memorial Day weekend this year.

“A tradition … embraced by music fans for decades happily moves forward to welcome new audiences and artists to this magical venue where moments and memories will continue to be created and shared for years to come,” said Live Nation.
