Forthcoming Westivals 

Forthcoming Westivals

While it's easy to justify forking over $5 to catch a show at the Lux, trying to rationalize dropping a couple hundred for a ticket to an outdoor megafestival is more tricky. But with so many bands squeezed into one weekend, they can be a cost-effective vacay. Here's a rundown of upcoming throwdowns.

Coachella, April 17-19: Though tickets for this Indio, Calif., fest are steep at $269 for three days or $99 for single day tickets, with more than 120 bands, you'll get plenty of twang for your buck. For $55, those 18 and up can camp on-site on a grassy knoll. No booze, drugs, glass or fire are permitted.

Coachella highlights: Morrissey, Paul McCartney, Leonard Cohen, The Cure, Public Enemy, The Killers, Band of Horses, Fleet Foxes, Superchunk, TV on the Radio and Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

Sasquatch, May 23-25: Tickets for this Memorial Day weekend fest at the majestic Gorge Amphitheatre in Washington are $66.50 per day and will go up to $76.50 per day on Monday, May 18. Camping options: a regular pass at $95 per car (four people max), or the more private premier pass that runs $160.

Noteworthy Sasquatch acts: Kings of Leon, The Decemberists, Animal Collective, Bon Iver, Jane's Addiction, Nine Inch Nails, Fleet Foxes, Ben Harper and Antony and the Johnsons.

Bumbershoot, Sept. 5-7: Though the full lineup for Seattle's Bumbershoot won't be announced until July 2009, advance tickets are on sale now for $80 through August 21.
