Portland, Oregon, USA

Portland, Oregon's MusicfestNW gets bigger this year with the arrival of an initial lineup that includes headliners Band of Horses, Iron and Wine, Explosions In the Sky and The Kills; alongside other acts like Handsome Furs, Archers of Loaf, The Antlers, Sebadoh, Blitzen Trapper and more.


Portland Rock City, not to be overshadowed by distant musical neighbor Seattle, created MusicfestNW as a meeting of the minds of independent and underground music. This is the festival formerly known as North by Northwest.


It will take place on September 7 - 11. It's a multi-venue type of deal, with gigs going down all over town, SXSW style. Places include Roseland Theater, Crystal Ballroom, Fez Ballroom, and more.


The MFNW schedule is online.


MusicfestNW Tickets

There are three different levels of tickets: $70 for a general admission pass that will allow you to go to all of the regular shows and one of the three "big" shows of Band of Horses, Iron & Wine or Explosions in the Sky. A second level ticket for $115 (called the "all show wristband") will also let you go to all regular shows but also all three of the big shows of Band of Horses, Iron & Wine or Explosions in the Sky. The third-level ticket package is the VIP package, which costs $250 and gives all of the other offerings plus guarantees that will be able to get into every show.
