The three-day music festival at the Gorge Amphitheater in George, Washington was as epic as planned, with over 60 shows over three stages, sunny weather (at least for the Northwest) and party until the break of dawn campgrounds, despite another last minute cancellation by Mac Miller, who had at least a good excuse — the rapper rushed off to Florida to be with his girlfriend Ariana Grande after the Manchester terrorist attack.

Although LCD Soundsystem made the most noise this weekend by announcing that they were done with their new album, Chance The Rapper closed Sasquatch! 2017 in grand style with a bombastic live performance that will be talked about for years.
