The 2013 Sasquatch Music Festival this weekend at The Gorge Amphitheatre in George, Washington set the stage for some of the best celebrity (and fan!) festival fashions of the year with headliners like Macklemore, Mumford and Sons, The XX, and Andrew Bird showing off their unique styles.
For Friday night headliner and Northwest-native Macklemore, this gig was more than another stop on his tour; it was a homecoming of epic proportion. The hip hop duo of Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, enjoying immense attention for their newest album The Heist, made sure their performance and style rivaled their enthusiasm for their slot in the festival.
Always an eclectic style icon, Macklemore busted out his usual “Thrift Shop” get up, donning an oversized tiger stripe fur coat, Seattle Sonics jersey, and his highly-replicated pseudo-crew cut hairstyle.
Although a fan favorite, Macklemore wasn’t the only artist to bring his fashion game at this year’s festival.
The music moguls of British folk rock band Mumford and Sons always look their best on stage with their traditional indie fashion. Songwriter and lead-singer Marcus Mumford appeared classy and put together in a white button down, black vest, and slacks while other members made use of an indie denim and khaki palette.
Songstress Romy Madley Croft of electronic band The XX maintained a classic style as well, going head-to-toe black to match her raven hair and black-as-night electric guitar. The XX’s release of their single “Together” for the new Baz Luhrmann film The Great Gatsby recently earned the duo relevance and acclaim outside of their devoted indie following.
Folk singer and composer Andrew Bird amplified his otherworldly musical talent with an understated and simple stage style. The 39-year-old Chicago native stepped out for his set in a subtle pinstripe navy sport coat, denim button down, and khaki slacks.
In true music festival style, fans all around sported their most eclectic, crazy fashions in celebration of the event. These concert-goers proudly sported full-sized Native American headdresses.
