This year is the first the Portland music festival has trimmed down to two days at one location. The event will take place at the Portland Waterfront on August 16-17. If this is indeed the lineup, it's a very solid one. I'm particularly looking forward to Run the Jewels, Fucked Up, the Antlers, Pink Mountaintops, and EMA.
Tickets for MusicfestNW go on sale this Friday. Meanwhile, according to a press release, Red Bull is offering pre-sale tickets starting today at 5 pm. There's more info here, including a link that suggests pre-sale tickets are $50 per day.
UPDATE: In a blog post at 12:41 pm today, Willamette Week confirmed the lineup. WW produces the annual Portland music festival.
