PREVIEW: Northwest hip hop takes the stage at Sasquatch
This weekend Live Nation’s Sasquatch music festival returns to the Gorge, and for the second straight year, boasts a healthy dose of Seattle hip hop on the lineup. The weekend kicks off with the new wave of rappers in Shelton Harris and BFA, followed by the dark, witty flow of Nacho Picasso, and the nightcap of the superstars Macklemore & Ryan Lewis blessing the main stage. With the rest of the weekend featuring a variety of acts from the veterans (Ra Scion, Nissim) and one of the best kept local secrets (Kingdom Crumbs), the range of Seattle’s sound is on full display.
