The Set Slayers of Sasquatch: Sufjan Stevens, Kurt Vile, Caribou, & Jamie XX

The final day of Sasquatch was quite possibly the best of the fest. 

The final day of Sasquatch was an unreal end to the weekend! Jam-packed with amazing sets (and cooperative weather), performances flowed nonstop from stage to tent to stage. It was the best balance in schedule yet music-wise, and as tired as everyone was after four days of festing, there was that general feeling in the air that this was it and we had to send it off with a bang!

Thao & The Get Down Stay Down, who are touring on their newest release, Man Alive, rocked out and kept the energy high all afternoon. Originally from Virginia, the group had no problems bangin’ out tunes for their West Coast fans.

Ibeyi, comprised of a sister duo who know how to get down with percussive beats, put on a stellar show outfitted in matching jumpsuits.

Kurt Vile, who has shot to indie stardom in the past year after his massively successful album, b’liev i’m goin down, played across his catalogue, but gave everyone the “Pretty Pimpin’” that they craved.

Enter Sufjan.

Sufjan Stevens’ performance, the contemporary artist known for “mixing autobiography, religious fantasy, and regional history to create folk put on an intergalactic show complete with crazy costuming, fantasmic lighting, and of course, confetti cannons.

Finally, Caribou and Jamie XX, who closed out the festival, had massive crowds despite being the final performances of the weekend. They kept everyone grooving late into the morning; exhaustion was not an option, nor an excuse. They slayed.
