Wilco will headline and curate the Solid Sound Festival, a new independently promoted and ticketed three-day event of music, art, comedy and interactivity, scheduled for Aug. 13-15 at MASS MoCA (Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art) in North Adams, Mass.
The festival will also feature performances by Wilco’s individual side projects: On Fillmore, the Nels Cline Singers, the Autumn Defense and Pronto.
As well as his performances with Wilco and the Nels Cline Singers, the Fender-wielding Cline plans to demo an interactive guitar pedal exhibit that he created. Cline discusses some of his pedal techniques in this Fender Vision video.
Festival attendees will have full access to the entire MASS MoCA campus, which incorporates 150,000 square feet of galleries. MASS MoCA, a renovated 19th century textile mill, is the largest center for contemporary visual and performing arts in the United States.
Tickets for the Solid Sound Festival are on sale this Friday through the bandʼs official website wilcoworld.net and through solidsoundfestival.com. Tickets for the three-day event are priced at $86.50, which includes parking. After June 1, ticket prices will be raised to $99.50.
