Honda Returns as Proud Supporter of the Sasquatch! Music Festival
Honda will return to the Sasquatch! Music Festival, held over Memorial Day Weekend (May 27-30) in George, Wash in support of the all-new, ninth-generation Civic. For the second year in a row, Honda will present the Big Foot Stage and a Honda Zone, which will feature the all-new Civic Si Coupe and Civic Si Sedan. Additionally, Sasquatch! carbon offsets will be provided by Honda through Carbon Harmony.
Held at the legendary Gorge Amphitheatre, the 10th annual Sasquatch! Music Festival will feature an eclectic gathering of indie rock bands and singer-songwriters, mixed with alternative rockers and hip hop acts. More than 100 bands are confirmed for this year's sold-out festival including, Foo Fighters, Death Cab for Cutie, Modest Mouse and Wilco. On the Honda Big Foot Stage, over 30 bands are scheduled to perform including Bassnectar, Robyn, Ratatat and Yeasayer. The four day long festival brings more than 100,000 attendees together to experience music in a sustainable, environmentally friendly atmosphere.
"We have found that Civic owners are as passionate about great music as they are the environment," said Tom Peyton, senior manager of Honda national advertising. "Honda's participation in Sasquatch! allows our company to combine two issues that our owners care about into a single, fun event."
In addition to the Big Foot Stage, Honda will present the Honda Zone, which will feature the all-new 2012 Civic Si Coupe, Civic Si Sedan and the CR-Z Sport Hybrid. Attendees will have the opportunity to get a photo taken in two Civic photo booths and enter a drawing for an opportunity to win an all-new 2012 Civic Si Coupe.
About the Honda Civic
Redesigned for the 2012 model year, the Civic lineup features six distinct models: the conventional gasoline-powered Civic Sedan and Civic Coupe, two high-performance Civic Si models, a gasoline-electric Civic Hybrid, a Civic Natural Gas and an all-new Civic HF high fuel economy model. For 2012, all existing Civic models achieve higher EPA fuel-economy ratings1 compared to the 2011 models, up by as much as 8 percent on the highway in Civic Sedans and Coupes equipped with automatic transmissions. The Civic Hybrid achieves an EPA-estimated fuel economy rating2 of 44 mpg city, 44 mpg highway and 44 mpg city/highway combined, making it the most fuel-efficient compact sedan currently available in the U.S. Additionally, the all-new Civic HF model debuts as a value-oriented, high fuel-economy sedan with an EPA-estimated highway fuel economy rating2 of 41 mpg, the highest highway rating for a conventional, gasoline-powered vehicle with an automatic transmission.
The Civic went on sale at Honda dealerships nationwide on April 20 with a suggested retail price2 (MSRP) starting at $15,605.
