Published Feb 03, 2012Every year, the Sasquatch! Music Festival invades George, WA's Gorge Amphitheatre with an enormous batch of indie and indie-minded musicians. It's become an annual tradition to say that each edition of the festival is the biggest yet, and 2012 looks no different with a jaw-dropping batch of performers.
