The 2010 Sasquatch! Music Festival lineup thankfully isn’t a mystery anymore. The initial list of bands to play at Quincy, WA’s bucolic Gorge can be peeped below. The event returns for its ninth year May 29-31 (Memorial Day Weekend) and the recently reunited Pavement, trip-hop progenitors Massive Attack, and reverb-y Southern rockers My Morning Jacket will headline.

Other Under the Radar-friendly artists set to play include Vampire Weekend, MGMT, Tegan & Sara, LCD Soundsystem, Broken Social Scene, The National, Band of Horses, Passion Pit, The Hold Steady, The New Pornographers, She & Him, Camera Obscura, Midlake, Drive-By Truckers, The Mountain Goats, Dirty Projectors, The xx, and many others.

Festival curator Adam Zacks founded the event way back in 2002, but he still hand-picks every artist and the eclectic nature of Sasquatch! bears that out. In recent years, the festival has taken strides to include more hip-hop/rap acts, as evidenced by appearances by Public Enemy, Kid Cudi, Wale, Brother Ali, and Fresh Espresso this year. This should be applauded since many multiple-day festivals are extremely weak in that area.

Over at the Comedy/Dance tent, The Office‘s Craig Robinson and The Daily Show‘s Rob Riggle will sling some punch lines with some local comedic upstarts. DJ/electronic acts include: Simian Mobile Disco, deadmau5, Passion Pit, Caribou, Booka Shade, YACHT, A-Trak, Boys Noize, Neon Indian, Dâm-Funk, Miike Snow, and Z-Trip. Basically, just peruse the list below and get ready to do a lot of walking between the venue’s four stages.

Tickets are available at sasquatchfestival.com and Ticketmaster. They’re on sale Saturday, February, 20th at 10 a.m. PST. A discounted three-day pass at $170 is only available during the sale weekend. Stay tuned to the fest’s official site for more details.
