Wilco's Solid Sound Fest to Take Hiatus, Return in 2013

SOLID SOUND FESTIVAL RETURNS TO MASS MOCA IN 2013;
WILCO PLAY MASS MOCA BENEFIT CONCERT SUMMER 2012

The next Solid Sound Festival will be held June 21-23, 2013 at MASS MoCA in North Adams, Ma. The Wilco-centric three-day event will take a one-year hiatus in 2012, but Wilco will perform at the museum this summer in a special concert to benefit MASS MoCA. The exact date of the benefit concert will be announced shortly.

"The Festival is dearly loved by all of us -- from the band to the staff who organize and execute it -- so the decision to take 2012 off was not an easy one," said festival co-organizer and Wilco manager Tony Margherita. "However, with the release of Wilco's latest album The Whole Love on their own newly launched label, followed by a lot of touring both home and away -- well, we've had a pretty crazy year. A ll that factored in to deciding that the best thing for us and for the festival would be to give ourselves enough time and energy to really focus on making Solid Sound 2013 the best one yet."

"We also understand the financial impact that taking the year off will have on MASS MoCA, our incredible host and not-for-profit partner in the festival," continues Margherita. "It is our hope and intention that this summer’s benefit concert will lessen that impact and present Wilco with another opportunity to bring our fans to a place that is very dear to us."
