With Sasquatch! cancelled after a 17-year run, fest founder and STG chief programming officer Adam Zacks is attempting to fill that void with a new arts festival called THING, which will include music, comedy, film, visual arts, dance, podcasts, food, and even a mentalist. "It's shaping up to be a pretty relaxed affair, and that's not a bad thing. In fact, that's part of the allure," writes The Stranger's Leilani Polk. "This is smaller, more thoughtful, and alluring in a way that a festival hasn't been in a while." The full lineup is "a refined, wide-ranging combo of buzzy indie selections like Japanese Breakfast and Tank and the Bangas with heavy-hitting headliners in older school vets like Jeff Tweedy, Violent Femmes, and De La Soul," plus celebrities like Todd Barry and Lindy West. It all goes down on three main stages, including a decommissioned zeppelin hangar (McCurdy Pavilion), the art-deco Wheeler Theatre, and the Parade Grounds near Puget Sound—not to mention the beautiful on-site hiking trails and beaches available for independent exploration.
