In what turned out to be another eventful, fun-filled weekend at the Gorge, Sasquatch! Music Festival kicked off its 15th year with plenty of great local bands and a slew of amazing headliners, as well as a tornado that ripped through the campground sending gear hundreds of feet in the air. The crazy wind shut down the main stage for the majority of Sunday's shows, shuffling bands' play times and locations around and canceling a few acts. It didn’t hold back the crowds from bringing the energy and killer dance moves as well as turning out some great festival looks.

La Luz, Tacocat, Wimps, Iska Dhaaf, and Thunderpussy were among the bands that represented their Seattle roots at the festival, sharing stages with such acts as The Cure, A$AP Rocky, Major Lazor, Florence + The Machine, and Disclosure. Here are some photos of the performers, and below that, some photos of the fans.
