The lineup for 17th annual Sasquatch! Music Festival has been announced, and it features former Talking Head/Brian Eno collaborator David Byrne, jazz-fusion prodigy Thundercat, Long Beach rapper Vince Staples, footwork phenom Jlin, UK shoegaze legends Slowdive, Beatle scion Dhani Harrison, queer pop chameleon Perfume Genius, rising Seattle hard-rockers Thunderpussy (who should have Thundercat sit in with them), and dozens more popular and semi-popular rock, hiphop, pop, and electronic artists.
