Live Nation tells us we’ll learn who’s playing Sasquatch 2011 on Feb. 6. A festival launch party will be held at 8 p.m. that day with performances by the Thermals (recent TRC interview clips here), Das Racist andMad Rad. Comedian Todd Barry, who appeared at last year’s festival, will host the event.
The festival will take place from May 27 to 30 this year, and last year Live Nation announced that Foo Fighters will perform.
Free tickets to the launch party will be available beginning Feb. 3 at Verizon Wireless stores at Sixth Avenue and Olive Way in Seattle, at Northgate Mall and Bellevue Square Mall. There is a limit of two tickets per person, and organizers note that a ticket does not guarantee entrée to the party. Fans will be let in on a first come, first serve basis.
