International acts rock the Sasquatch festival

The international music presence at Sasquatch music festival this year was small, but global acts ranked among the more memorable of the weekend. Highlights included the powerful, female-led Little Dragon out of Sweden bringing the house down on Sunday night, Awesome Tapes From Africa mixing up an eclectic array of obscure found cassettes, and Beardyman (Darren Foreman), a British beatbox and live-loop artist, who unveiled custom-built equipment fusing a comedic style with improvised looping.

Traveling direct from London after a 6-month absence spent building his own software, Beardyman’s performance at Sasquatch was the testing grounds and kick off of his worldwide tour. Watch the video below for a interview with Beardyman after his performance.
