MusicfestNW 2011
Willamette Week is thrilled to announce the initial lineup for MusicfestNW 2011, now in its 11th year of showcasing the finest in national and regional music in one of the most compelling urban areas in the country.

MusicfestNW is once again returning to the historic Pioneer Courthouse Square—Portland's civic living room—for three outdoor performances headlined by rootsy indie rock outfit Band of Horses (Sunday, Sept. 11), celestial instrumental-rockers Explosions in the Sky (Saturday, Sept. 10), and the backwoods folk of Iron & Wine (Friday, Sept. 9).

The festivities include a kick-off show by bluesy-punk duo The Kills on Wednesday, Sept. 7 at the Crystal Ballroom. The star studded festival also features performances by reunited indie rock legends Archers of Loaf and Butthole Surfers, atmospheric metal titans Neurosis, local folk-rockers Blind Pilot and Blitzen Trapper, and up-and-coming Seattle hip-hop duo Macklemore & Ryan Lewis.

Festival wristbands and tickets for shows at Pioneer Courthouse Square, Crystal Ballroom, Roseland Theater, and Aladdin Theater go on sale to the public on Friday, June 3 at 10:00 am. Click here for more information.
