This Memorial Day weekend, dozens of chart-toppers and up-and-coming artists will rock the town of George, Washington for the eleventh annual Sasquatch! Music Festival

Along with San Francisco's Outside Lands, Sasquatch is one of the largest musical gatherings north of Coachella and west of Lollapalooza.

Last May, the Foo Fighters, Death Cab for Cutie and Skrillex topped the four-day event; this year, promoters nabbed the eclectic Jack White as a key headliner.

White, whose body of work encompasses The White Stripes, The Rancouters and The Dead Weather, is set to release his first solo album, Blunderbuss, in April. 

The singer/songwriter/guitarist/pianist/drummer released the album's first single, Love Interruption, last week. 

Bon Iver, the Grammy-nominated folk group who turned down the chance to perform at the awards show, is another one of Sasquatch's "A-listers."

While a complete list of performers is available on the festival's official website, other notable names include Beck, Tenacious D, The Shins, Girl Talk and The Roots

Tickets will go on sale to the general public on Saturday, February 11th and are available through Live Nation.
