The History of Sasquatch Festival

The Sasquatch! Music Festival was founded in 2002 by Pacific Northwest-based concert promoter Adam Zacks. Prior to the inception of the festival, Zacks booked and managed shows at the Roseland Theater in Portland, Oregon.

After moving to Seattle, Washington to be closer to friends and family, Zacks began considering the creation of a music festival in the Pacific Northwest. In an interview with Seattle Weekly in September 2007, Zacks described the birth of Sasquatch!

Sasquatch was an idea born on a hunch that there was untapped demand for a certain kind of festival that catered to the eclectic tastes of music enthusiasts. It started in 2002, which was shortly after a number of the touring festivals (Lollapalooza, Lilith, Horde) had petered out and the beginning of the wave of regional festivals that started with Coachella and now is a dominant force on the music landscape, with Bonnaroo, Austin City Limits, etc.
