Yes, indeed, Wilco is bringing their biannual music and arts festival, Solid Sound, back to MASS MoCA in North Adams next year. The fest will return from Friday-Sunday, June 23-25, 2017.

Spanning three days and four stages, Solid Sound will include music by Wilco and its members’ side projects, as well as many other soon-to-be-announced musical performers. It also features a full comedy line-up curated by festival alum John Hodgman, family fun for all ages, local food, craft beer, camping, naturalist activities and more.

Previous incarnations of the wildly eclectic fest have featured jazz veterans (Charles Lloyd), omni-popsters (NRBQ), guitar gods (Richard Thompson, Nels Cline, Bill Frisell and Ryley Walker) and sizzling soul singer Mavis Staples, as well as Real Estate, Sam Amidon, Cibo Matto, Mac DeMarco, Parquet Courts, Shabazz Palaces, Jessica Pratt and so much more.

Mark your calendars now, and stay tuned for band announcements and further updates…
