Got an email from the festival says the lineup coming out on Wednesay
Last year, Willamette Week posted the lineup the day before MFNW announced it would be released. Hopefully we get some news later today!
While I don't necessarily want to believe the who-MFNW-recently-followed-on-Twitter-will-play-this-year's-festival theory because I don't need any more Foster the People in my life, Modest Mouse seems like a no-brainer with a new album and no Portland date since last fall's Project Pabst.
Built to Spill- Untethered Moon Doldrums- The Air Conditioned Nightmare Marriages- Salome Matt and Kim- New Glow Mikal Cronin- MCIII Natalie Prass- Natalie Prass Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds- Chasing Yesterday
Alabama Shakes- Sound & Color Courtney Barnett- Sometimes I Sit and Think, And Sometimes I Just Sit Earl Sweatshirt- Doris Earl Sweatshirt- I Don't Like Shit, I Don't Go Outside: An Album by Earl Sweatshirt Frank Ocean- channel ORANGE JEFF the Brotherhood- Wasted On the Dream Kathryn Calder- Kathryn Calder Lady Lamb the Beekeeper- After Philip Selway- Familial Philip Selway- Weatherhouse Radiohead- The Bends Run the Jewels- Run the Jewels 2 The White Stripes- Get Behind Me Satan
Well not that it means anything but they recently starting following all these bands on twitter:
Mascaras Panda Bear Caribou Four Tet Viet Cong Title Fight Alialujah Choir Beirut Belle & Sebastian Courtney Barnett Misterwives Kate Tempest Bully Lady Lamp Tobias Jesso Jr. Toro y Moi Twin Shadow Milo Greene
and The Roots!
EDIT: and Modest Mouse and Foster the People. Or are those older?
Does anyone have ideas of who could play this year? Here are some of my thoughts based on the relative sizes of artists who played last year's newly-formatted MFNW (and keeping in mind they're adding Friday evening shows this year, so they might be able to spend a bit more for one headliner ala Sasquatch 2011 with Foo Fighters on the shortest festival day) and tour schedules:
Alabama Shakes Brand New Desaparecidos Iron & Wine & Ben Bridwell Matt and Kim The Tallest Man On Earth Toro y Moi Wilco
Maybe Bumbershoot will get the Deftones / Incubus / Death from Above 1979 tour? It wraps up in San Diego on 8/30 (Bumbershoot: 9/5-7). But a week off might not make sense, so I'm probably wrong. What can I say, I miss lineup speculation!
