Chance The Rapper, Frank Ocean to Headline 2017 Sasquatch Festival
Music lovers on the west coast looking for an alternative to Coachella can feast their eyes on the lineup for this year's Sasquatch Music Festival, announced on Twitter Monday morning (Jan. 23). Frank Ocean, and Chance The Rapper will headline the Washington-based festival, with Mac Miller, Kaytranada, Aesop Rock, Joey Purp and more as well listed to play. It all goes down this Memorial Day Weekend, May 26-28, with tickets going on sale this Saturday through Live Nation.
Chance will be hitting the festival circuit hard this spring and summer, headlining Governors Ball in New York and Bonnaroo in Tennessee come June. The success of his Coloring Book album as well included multiple Grammy nominations, so the rapper may be floating even higher following February's award ceremony. He is nominated for Best New Artist, Best Rap Album and more.
Frank Ocean meanwhile will be headlining New York's Panorama Festival alongside A Tribe Called Quest and Solange come July. In recent weeks, lineups for many of the country's premier festivals have been announced, with hip-hop dominating some of the bills. Kendrick Lamar, Future and Travis Scott will all play Coachella, representing some of the biggest releases from the previous year.
