Musicfest NW takes over Portland this weekend. Now in it’s 13th year, the festival has undergone a radical format change. Instead of multiple nights of club shows featuring dozens of bands at a variety of venues across the city, the festival has been distilled into two gigantic days of music at Waterfront Park - featuring a lineup of big names (Spoon, Girl Talk), up-and-comers (Future Islands, tUnE-yArDs, Haim), and a eclectic mix of artists, including some home-grown favorites (Shy Girls, Wild Ones, Modern Kin).
To get you even more pumped up for the fun-filled weekend ahead, here’s a look back at a band we’re especially excited to watch on tear up the Hawthorne Stage Sunday afternoon, Modern Kin! Check out their blazing Stagepass performance from May.
We are giving away wristbands for both days of Musicfest NW! See below for details and how to enter.
Musicfest NW kicks off Saturday, August 16th at 12:45 and wraps up Sunday night. Check out the full schedule here.
