There is a reason why Sasquatch Music Festival is held, where it is.

150 miles east of Seattle, Washington, there is the Gorge Amphitheatre. An outdoor venue that estimated to hold about 30,000 with a backdrop of the Columbia River and Cascade Ranges. That is where Sasquatch Music Festival is at.

This year, founder Adam Zacks and Live Nation did a wonderful job, accomplishing factors that every festival tries but not always succeeds: line-up, location and atmosphere.Normally, festivals can only get one of the factors, sometimes not at all--Fyre Fest anyone?

Mainstage love

2018’s Sasquatch gave us three days of diverse, variety of artists. The artists at the mainstage all displayed unique performances and were all different in its own way.

Vince Staples is a one-man act and everyone loves it. Witnessing a David Byrne show is mandatory. Bon Iver can do a lot with an Orchestra behind him.

Neko Case is timeless.

Thank you Modest Mouse for giving the fans fireworks in Day 2 because no one else did.

The National’s front man Matt Berninger, literally crowd walked the whole floor of the amphitheater.

Spoon are passionate performers and found new love of female hip-hop artists Lizzo.

Major Props

There is so much love and discovery at this Sasquatch festival, attendance gave all the love to these performers.

To everyone that face the sun and grasp what energy they had to go see Sophie Allison (Soccer Mommy), who performed at the main stage at 1p.m. deserves props. Soccer Mommy is an upcoming artists and everyone should be hearing her.

Anderson Paak closed out at the Bigfoot stage on the final day of Sasquatch, which was a smart move. Paak is an entertainer and has so much talent.

Tv on the Radio, Explosions in the Sky and Slowdive have to be included in someone’s top 5. They are all electrifying and all have particular sound.

Major Props for Pond, the Perth, Aussie band for being a little bit late because they wanted to see Vince Staples, which was confessed by lead singer Nick Allbrook. Also, Allbrook is a terrific showman.

Japanese Breakfast’s Michelle Zauner performed “Dreams,” by The Cranberries, honoring the late Dolores O’Riordan. Zauner has been performing this cover while on tour, let’s hope this is ongoing.

Discoveries

When we see festival lineups post up in your social feeds, it is noticeable that the font starts larger and starts to shrink, like a significance to the popularity factor of the artists or band. Well, attendees took their time to visit non-familiar artists and a lot of them were great to see between set times.

7 Things Every Real Taylor Swift Fan Knows Will 100 Percent Happen On TS7

4.26

On April 13th, Taylor Swift posted on her Instagram a picture with the caption "4.26"... since then, every post since has had the same caption, and fans have been theorizing ever since.

1. It's going to be very different from "Reputation"

Looking at her current pastel Instagram theme, it is very, very different than dark, mysterious vibe from her "Reputation" days.

2. This will be one of Taylor's happiest albums yet

https://www.instagram.com/p/BtuMOFmlDm5/

Taylor has stayed out of the media for the most part since the release of "Reputation", and I believe that she's enjoyed her time, focusing on her music, friends, family, and relationships during this downtime.

3. This album will reflect on her childhood

In 2016, in an interview with Glamour magazine, Taylor revealed that she was bullied in school, and her mom would often take her to T.J.Maxx after school to look at the opal jewelry in order to cheer her up. On April 14th, she posted a picture of jewelry, including opal. Also, one could say that her current Instagram profile picture has an opal tone to it. These could be hints to Taylor tapping into her childhood for her newest album. Oh, and she dressed up as a "childhood hero" for a New Year's Eve party...

4. ...But also focus on moving forward

From her fresh, pastel Instagram theme to the flowers, butterflies, and overall springy vibes, Taylor has an airy, happy vibe that yells fresh, new life. Perhaps the album will also focus on her rising above everything from "Reputation" and all of the new things in her life.

5. It's going to have hidden eggs placed within the lyrics

https://www.instagram.com/p/BuRqXqqlshV/

All Swift fans know that Taylor loves to play games and create puzzles for us to figure out leading up to album releases. Why does the album itself have to be any different? Hopefully TS7 will have hidden gems in it as well...

6. Jack Antonoff and Max Martin will be back

https://www.instagram.com/p/BwTItkEDh9d/

Jack and Max have been with Taylor since "1989," and I don't think they're going anywhere. If they made it through the sound shift between Swift's 5th and 6th albums, they can work with whatever new ideas Taylor comes up with.

7. If the old Taylor is dead, I think TS7 will be when the new Taylor fully emerges

https://www.instagram.com/p/BumUfpXFKaL/

There's been some butterfly emojis and imagery flying around on Taylor's Instagram, and in a way, I think TS7 will be Taylor emerging from her cocoon of sorts into a butterfly. "Reputation" showed that she was capable of change, and this new album will show a more mature version of Taylor.

Chances are all of these are 100% wrong... but hey, it's fun to theorize while we wait for her new single/album to drop on April 26th.
