Hey, remember that music festival that’s been going on in Portland for the last 20 years? Good, because it’s MusicfestNW time again, and for the second year of its transformed self, the fest is returning to the waterfront for three days, August 21-23. And this time with free water (having learned its lesson after last year’s water debacle).
In addition to the water, MusicfestNW is bringing a lineup that features Washington indie rock gods Modest Mouse and artists such as Belle and Sebastian, Battles, Danny Brown, and more. Along with the musical goodness, there will be food trucks, an air-conditioned dome, and frosty beverages.
Tickets are on sale now, for individual days or a three-day pass. Day passes start at $45 for Friday and $60 for Saturday or Sunday; three-day passes start at $140. Are you over 21 and a Very Important Person? A three-day VIP pass will set you back $300. And if you need a Lyft to the festival, use code “MFNW” and score yourself a free ride (up to $20)!

– Saturday, August 22: Beirut / Belle and Sebastian / Twin Shadow / Battles / Title Fight / Cayucas / Talk in Tongues / SALES / Alialujah Choir
