Sasquatch Music Festival (May 24-28)

In February when we heard Jack White would be headlining the Sasquatch Music Festival and when we found out how close George, WA is to Penticton, BC we immediately bought tickets.

We had a great time! We camped among 27,500 other festival goers for 5 nights - what an experience. And we saw some great shows, including Jack White, The Shins, Feist, Civil Wars, Of Monsters and Men,  Beck, Metric, Joy Formidable, Bon Iver, Tenacious D, Beirut, Silversun Pickups, We Are Augustines & more.

Below are photos of the camping area as we were not allowed to bring in cameras to the stage area.

We arrived Thursday night around 7pm to set up our tent. 
This is the view across the road that evening.

This is the same view the next morning. 
There were 27,500 participants camping that weekend.

View of our neighborhood

Home sweet home. Our neighbours from the left were 3 guys from Calgary.

Our neighbours on the right. Photo taken at 10 am, in the middle of 
their morning drinking game.

A common scene at Sasquatch.

With our neighbour Chase, a marathon runner who ran everyday as many kilometers 
as beer he had drank the night before. He ran 20 km that day.

It's not quite noon yet, but we're way behind our neighbours already!

Don't worry. We are legit. They verified that we were at least 21 years old.
