MusicfestNW 2011 Initial Lineup Announced

Now in its 11th year, Portland, Ore.'s MusicfestNW is set to kick off Sept. 7 and run for five days with a lineup that's region-centric. Luckily for everyone involved, the Northwest has long been home to one of the country's best music scenes. There are plenty of hometown, or at least regional, heroes on the bill, including Band of Horses, Shabazz Palaces, Blind Pilot, Blitzen Trapper, and Macklemore and Ryan Lewis.

 

But the folks behind the festival clearly aren't sticking solely to the Northwest. Explosions in the Sky, the Kills, Olivia Tremor Control (!), Butthole Surfers, Archers of Loaf, and Iron & Wine are some of the event's top performers.

 

Festival wristbands and tickets for venue-specific shows go on sale this Friday, June 3. Wristbands are on sale at two different prices. If you throw down $115, it's an all-inclusive wristband that gets you into all three outdoor shows and the rest of the five-day festival. But if you pay $70, it's for a ticket to one of the three outdoors shows (Band of Horses, Explosions in the Sky, or TBD band) and admission to the rest of the festival.
