It seems like every day a new lineup is announced for a forthcoming festival. This week it’s Portland’s turn, with MusicfestNW revealing its 2010 lineup for its 10th year. Taking place from September 9-12, MusicfestNW is mixing things up a bit this year by adding two outdoor performances at Portland’s Pioneer Courthouse Square, in addition to their regular 17-club, four-night, 160-band indoor performances. The two lucky bands that get to play in the sun are The Decemberists and The National, on September 11 and 12, respectively. Apparently you have to be a “The” band to get that privilege. Wristbands for the festival go on sale June 5 for either $90 (which includes admission to both outdoor shows and the entire four-day festival) or $65 (only includes admission to one outdoor show and the remainder of the festival). Individual tickets can also be purchased for any of the shows.
