This year’s Sasquatch! Music Festival sold out in a week. For those of us who weren’t fortunate enough to snag a ticket, NPR and KEXP will be streaming a selection of performances live over Memorial Day Weekend. Both media outlets have vast experience broadcasting live performances, but KEXP executive director Tom Mara admits this will be a considerably huge undertaking. “This is the most ambitious live broadcast project we’ve taken on,” said Mara to Seattle Weekly. Starting Friday, you can visit NPR’s Live from Sasquatch page, use NPR Music’s iPhone app, or visit the live music archive at KEXP’s website to listen to sets by mainstage performers like Death Cab for Cutie, Foo Fighers, Wilco, The Flaming Lips, Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings, and many more.
