Photos: Sasquatch Music Festival 2013

This year, ambulance I once again had the honor of attending and photographing the Sasquatch Music Festival at The Gorge in Washington. It was a fantastic lineup, site with local hip-hop star Macklemore headlining a very emotional first night, and The Postal Service closing out the festival on Monday night. Highlights of this year’s fest were of course Macklemore, with his glorious homecoming, The Postal Service’s long awaited return, Elvis Costello, Death Grips, and Killer Mike, who was so awed by the huge reception he got on the Yeti stage that he was struck speechless for a good period of time after his opening song.

This year’s festival was also particularly memorable for me since on the second day, I was struck with a bout of appendicitis, which cut my Saturday short and landed me in a hospital in Wenatchee for an emergency appendectomy. Fun times, yet I still managed to submit my work on time and continued to shoot the festival throughout the weekend, despite paring down my coverage significantly (12 bands to 8 to 4).

My photos ended up in Prefix Magazine, as well as in various other publications through Wire Image.
