Animal Collective will headline this year's MusicfestNW.

MusicfestNW 2013

The Pacific Northwest’s sprawling music festival, the super-fun-to-say MusicfestNW, is one of the biggest events any quadrant of the United States has to offer. One-hundred-and-fifty bands are included in its lineup and, each year, it takes place across almost 20 venues. All of which adds up to MusicfestNW ranking up there as the third largest indoor festival the country has to offer. For its upcoming 2013 iteration, the six-day affair is scheduled for September 3-8, and will be held – but where else? – in Portland, OR.

For the full list of bands scheduled to play this year’s MusicfestNW, see our extensive, exhaustive(ing) chart below. If you’d rather just a quick sampling, we have Animal Collective, Dan Deacon, Deerhunter, Joey Badass, Ra Ra Riot, Shuggie Otis, Ty Segall, Young the Giant, Youth Lagoon, and a whole slew of other buzzy artists gearing up to take the stage in just a few short months. Previously rated by TIME magazine as one of 2009′s 50 Most Authentic American Experiences (big names and big spectacle? Sounds about right), MusicfestNW is consistently an event not to be missed. Unfortunately, it’s still too early for ticket sales, but be sure to keep checking back with us in the months ahead as discount deals do become available!
