The Best & Worst of Sasquatch 2013: From Righteous to Ridiculous

With Sasquatch 2013 now in the rearview, we’ve got an awesome collection of reviews and photo galleries to remember it by. We’re closing out our coverage this week with a look back at some of the highest highs and weirdest weirds from our weekend at The Gorge!

Most Dedicated Performer: P.O.S., who kicked all the ass at Sasquatch despite needing a new kidney, and spent 80% of his set rapping in the rain, standing in the crowd.


Best Non-Musical Pastime: Superman sliding leaps on the rain-soaked grass

Best Crowd Singalong: Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros during their infectiously catchy closer “Home”.

Funniest Stage Banter: Cake frontman John McCrea, whose witticisms and snarky attitude kept the crowd laughing through their entire set. “Thank you! Your attention span is awesome!”

Strangest Accessory: A bag of urine? What the hell is that?

Biggest Dance Party: Tie – Arctic Monkeys and Bloc Party

Most Misplaced Act: Elvis Costello & The Impostors – With roughly 90% of the Sasquatch crowd under 35 years old, very few people had any idea who the old dude onstage was, but danced along considerately with the semi-recognizable songs.

Best Onstage Collaboration: Mumford & Sons bringing the entire Edward Sharpe crew onstage for a cover of Fleetwood Mac’s “The Chain” – watch below:

Biggest Homecoming: Seattle’s very own Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, who was greeted like a hometown hero and showed big love to the Sonics with a wildly celebrated Friday night set.

Jack White Lookalike Award: Peter Hayes of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club

Most Inappropriate Brand Name: “Honey Bucket” portable toilets. We’ll never think of Winnie The Pooh the same way again.

Most Awkward Drunk-Chick Butt Flash: This one.

Best Quote: “Dude if you’re not tripping balls during Sigur Rós, what’s the point?”

Most Drugged-Out Fans: Sigur Rós

Drug of Choice: TIE – Molly and Shrooms

Happiest Sasquatch 2013 Attendee: This guy.

See you next year at The Gorge!
