Wilco’s Solid Sound Fest returns in 2019

Biennial fest scheduled for June 28-30

Wilco’s Solid Sound Festival will return to the Mass MoCA in North Adams, MA next summer, the band announced Tuesday.

In a statement, frontman Jeff Tweedy said of the festival, “After almost two years off the road, we’re going to be so excited to be back on stage together.”

This will be the sixth edition of the music and arts festival that, over the years, has featured not only the host band, but also various band member’s side projects; acts such as Mavis Staples, the Levon Helm Band, Dave and Phil Alvin, Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth, Television, Parquet Courts, Kurt Vile, and numerous comedians.

Past festivals have also included Wilco performing a fan-cultivated set on the final night.

Early Bird tickets go on sale Thursday, Oct. 18 at 11 a.m. A limited number of three-day passes will be available for $149. There is also a new “Friends of the Festival” pass that includes a poster autographed by Wilco, an autographed copy of Jeff Tweedy’s upcoming memoir,  Let’s Go (So We Can Get Back): A Memoir of Recording and Discording With Wilco, Etc., and access to a private lounge.
