The annual Sasquatch! Music Festival took place over Memorial Day weekend along the Columbia River at one of the world’s most scenic outdoor venues, The Gorge, in George, Wash. Headlined by Chance the Rapper, Twenty One Pilots and LCD Soundsystem, the three-day music-fest was produced by Live Nation, with audio systems provided by Carlson Audio Systems of Seattle.


Founded in 1988 by local production pros Mark Carlson and Jonathan Stoverud-Myers, Carlson Audio today provides sound systems and support for nearly all large-scale events throughout the Pacific Northwest, from corporate to concerts, installation to pop-ups, including Project Pabst NW (Beck, Nas, Iggy Pop, Spoon) and Bumbershoot (Lorde, Flume, Haim, Solange, Vince Staples).

For Sasquatch!, Carlson deployed d&b audiotechnik-based audio packages for the Main Stage, BigFoot Stage and Dance Tent, with consoles from Avid, DiGiCo, Yamaha and Midas. Wireless systems were all Shure UHF. The Carlson team was led by FOH system tech Morgan “Mongo” Hodge and FOH tech Jesse Turner on the Main Stage, with stage crew including Anthony Riek, Brian Dale “Doc” Fall, Vince Agne and Courtney Rusk. The BigFoot Stage was led by FOH system tech Andrew Pardo and a stage team of Kyle Mooney, Jeremy Davidson and Tony Hoffman.
