After the usual months-long build up of rumored acts, the annual Sasquatch! Festival officially has announced its lineup.

The Cure, Disclosure, Florence + The Machine, Alabama Shakes and Major Lazer are among the big names confirmed for this year’s party May 27-30 at the Gorge Amphitheatre.

If that’s not enough to convince you to make the seven-hour drive to George, Wash., on Memorial Day weekend, dozens of other acts will span a vast variety of genres. More than 120 are planned. Other major highlights include A$AP Rocky, Grimes, M83, Sufjan Stevens, Leon Bridges, Chet Faker, Kurt Vile and lots more.

The talent pool is so strong that notable performers such as Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Digable Planets and Yo La Tengo have been relegated to the fine print on the Sasquatch! poster. View a large version of the poster here.

Tickets are on sale starting at 11 a.m. today at SasquatchFestival.com
