At last night's Chvrches show at the Wonder Ballroom, MusicfestNW announced the lineup for 2013's festival, which will take place in Portland on Tuesday, September 3 through Sunday, September 8. Over those six days—hooray, it looks like MFNW will be one day longer than previous years—more than 120 bands will play at various venues dotted throughout Portland. The most notable of these, of course, is Pioneer Courthouse Square, which will host four shows:
Thurs Sept 5: Young the Giant, Youth Lagoon, Pacific Air
Fri Sept 6: Animal Collective, Dan Deacon
Sat Sept 7: The Head and the Heart, Thao and the Get Down Stay Down, Deep Sea Diver
Sun Sept 8: Neko Case, Pickwick, The Moondoggies
The Sunday show is notable as it will be Neko Case's first Portland show following the release of her yet-to-be-released new album, which she recorded here in town over the past year or so.

Other notable gets: Superchunk, who you've loved since the '90s! Shuggie Otis, who you've loved since Luaka Bop reissued his amazing Inspiration Information album in 2001! And he's sharing a bill with Charles Bradley, who you've loved for a couple years now! Glass Candy and Chromatics, who you just love! Fred Armisen doing something! Bonnie 'Prince' Billy! Deerhunter! I'm also personally excited to see Angel Olsen, Sonny and the Sunsets, and Titus Andronicus.

In addition to Armisen, comedian Brian Posehn will perform, and there are lots of excellent Oregon bands as well: Typhoon, the Helio Sequence, the Thermals, Horse Feathers, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, the Baseball Project, YOB, Fred and Toody Cole, Onuinu, the Mean Jeans, Old Light, Hausu, 1939 Ensemble, Wooden Indian Burial Ground, TxE, Morning Ritual, Sun Angle, the Woolen Men, Priory, Like a Villain, Neal Morgan, the Chicharones, Bison Bison, Gaytheist, Minden, Vice Device, Lord Dying, Youthbitch, and more.

Tickets for this thing go on sale Friday, May 31 at 10 am. There are two tiers: A $90 wristband gets you into all the club shows, plus one of the Pioneer Courthouse Square deals, and a $150 wristband gets you into all four Square shows, plus the club shows of course. The event runs concurrently with TechfestNW, an interactive conference that runs September 6-8.
