Wilco’s Solid Sound Festival returns to the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (MASS MoCA) in North Adams, MA on June 26-28, 2015. A limited number of specially-priced $124 early bird tickets go on sale Friday, at 10 a.m. ET through solidsoundfestival.com, massmoca.org and the MASS MoCA box office (413.662.2111). Kids tickets (ages 7-10) for $50 also go on sale Friday.
The three-day event, conceived by Wilco and inaugurated in 2010, will again present Wilco as hosts and headliners, as well as a wide range of soon-to-be-announced musical performances on four stages, plus Wilco-member-side-projects, a comedy cabaret hosted by John Hodgman and much more.
“We want to make it unique every year, something you can only experience here,” Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy told Rolling Stone at the 2013 festival.
The 2015 festival will continue in the tradition of previous festivals, which have, in addition to offering a broad range of musical performers and comedians, included falconry and birds of prey demonstrations, a dunk tank, an all-covers set by Wilco, a naturalist hike, axe-restoration instruction, a live version of NPR’s Radiolab and more, all set amidst the sprawling campus of the country’s largest contemporary art museum.
In addition to tickets, this Friday opens reservations for campsites at Solid Ground, the festival’s official campsite, and for seats on the Peter Pan chartered- bus service to and from the festival from New York City.
Wilco’s just released Alpha Mike Foxtrot: Rare Tracks 1994-2014 and What’s Your 20?: Essential Tracks. Alpha Mike Foxtrot is a 4-CD/4-LP/DIGITAL-box-set of rare studio and live recordings collected from the band’s extensive audio archives. What’s Your Twenty? is a 2-CD/DIGITAL compilation of essential tracks culled from the band’s previously released studio recordings.
