The annual Solid Sound Music and Arts Festival, run by Wilco, will take place from June 21st-23rd at MASS MoCA in North Adams, MA. Wilco, who has curated and headlined the festival since 2010, has just released the full lineup. The band itself will be the main focus, with two full sets on the bill. The Autumn Defense, a side project by Wilco’s bassist John Stirratt, and guitarist and multi-instrumentalist Patrick Sansone, will also be featured. Other Wilco side projects will include guitarist Nels Cline together with Julian Lage, as well as Glenn Kotche and Darin Gray accompanying WNYC’s Radiolab, a live radio show that will take place at the festival.
Additional artists include Neko Case, Mark Mulcahy, Foxygen, White Denim, Low, The Dream Syndicate, and Yo La Tengo, who will not only be performing a full set but will also play a score of the film The Love Song of R. Buckminster Fuller. The festival is not just a concert, but has a heavy focus on art and creative exploration. A few comedians hosted by MC John Hodgman will also perform, including Reggie Watts, Al Madrigal, and Jen Kirkman.
You can currently purchase three-day passes through Solid Sound Festival’s website.
