mia sasquatch 2014
We all know Sasquatch! Music Festival kicks ass every year, but there was a definite trend we were noticing this year especially. Not only was the lineup 20% female, but the majority of our favorite performances from this last weekend were of that 20%. We applaud Sasquatch! for going farther than most festivals to not only book such a grand number of female artists and musicians, but to select such phenomenal women to rock out the stages. Whether you were a Sasquatch! Festival-goer or missed out this year, there is plenty to love in our top 5 Flourishing Female Acts, so let’s get to it!

“Sasquatch! What an epic festival experience. The crowd, the view…wow. We LOVED it.” – First Aid Kit

Saturday afternoon was the perfect day for a rest on the green hill. The sun was shining, with a soft, cool breeze cutting the heat down to a perfect temperature. The only thing missing in this perfect moment was the perfect element of sound to keep the easy feeling afloat, without overpowering it. Two folk goddesses took the mainstage, and from the moment their voices reached the open air, we were enthralled. Elements of indie, folk and country grace First Aid Kit’s unique blend of sounds, with an overall airy presence like dreams floating above our resting minds. The twang of the guitar gives their music a country feel, and the gentle harmonies these two sisters to intricately lace together reminds us of old western love songs. However, a hint of vintage style is reminiscent in their 60s style, with modest flowers in their hair and flowing floral prints. First Aid Kit provided a healing, soothing escape to the constant spinning of the world around us, and there could have been no better backdrop to the moment than the open canyons and still, peaceful Columbia.

You can pre-order First Aid Kit’s upcoming album Stay Gold, out June 10th, right here!
