MFNW 2013 Lineup Announced!

Seattle has no shortage of summertime music festivals and events, so why does KEXP travels= down to Portland, OR, to broadcast during MusicfestNW each year? One reason is the comfortable, neighborhood-like atmosphere of the festival itself. The other is the stellar lineup that just keeps getting better and better. Today, MFNW announced its 2013 lineup, and it’s one you won’t want to miss. Among the many must-see bands: Animal Collective, Deerhunter, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Bob Mould, Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy, !!!, Charles Bradley, Chvrches, The Head & the Heart, Superchunk, The Joy Formidable, Ty Segall and many, many others.
