The Sasquatch! Music Festival, held along the Columbia River at the Gorge Ampitheater gears up with a great lineup, including The Flaming Lips, The National, R.E.M., M.I.A., Modest Mouse, The Cure and Death Cab For Cutie.

Even if Bonnaroo, All Points West, SXSW and Coachella soak in the buzz, top to bottom we’ll take this lineup any day of the week.? It’s that strong.

The festival takes place May 24-26. Besides a great lineup of bands you can expect The Flaming Lips to debut their movie Christmas on Mars.

Also confirmed are Flight of the Conchords, the New Pornographers, Built To Spill, the Hives, the Breeders, Stephen Malkmus & the Jicks, Fleet Foxes, Battles, Throw Me The Statue and Crudo – a new collaboration between Mike Patton and Dan the Automator.

Tickets go on sale March 8; prices increase two days later and will be raised again the week of the event. VIP package details can be found on Sasquatch!’s Web site.

Besides the big guns, we’re excited for the scrapy role players like Cold War Kids, Okkervil River and White Rabbits.? You never know when a David Eckstein is gonna win World Series MVP.? Full lineup after the jump.
