After Coachella announced their lineup last week, get ready for an onslaught of festival announcements. This morning, Sasquatch! Festival, the annual concert held at the Gorge Amphitheatre in George, Washington, announced that headliners Vampire Weekend, Sigur Rós, the xx and the recently reunited the Postal Service will join indie folk-rock kings Mumford and Sons and the Lumineers May 24-27.

The lineup leans indie and hip-hop this year, with the former represented by Arctic Monkeys, Dirty Projectors, Grimes, Japandroids, Toro Y Moi, Youth Lagoon, Divine Fits, Solange and Tame Impala (among many others) and the latter featuring Macklemore & Ryan Lewis,  Earl Sweatshirt, El-P, Killer Mike and Schoolboy Q & Ab-Soul.

The festival announced its lineup at a special concert Monday night at Seattle's Neptune Theatre, with Built to Spill, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and Cody ChesnuTT performing. 

Last year, we watched Beck play his first festival set in four years and got blown away by Metric and St. Vincent. We suspect this year will have similar results.
