mfnw 2010 : omn’s picks for musicfestnw’s tenth anniversary

In its tenth year, the citywide 2010 MusicFestNW festival brings more than 160 musicians and bands to 20 venues across town from Wednesday, September 8th to Sunday, September 12th. This year’s fest also features two new outdoor showcases on Saturday and Sunday in Pioneer Courthouse Square with headliners The Decemberists and The National filling the square as well as two free, all-ages evening showcases at the Wonder Ballroom presented by Nike including Ra Ra Riot, Phantogram, and Washed Out on Thursday, September 9th and Black Lips, Surfer Blood, and Male Bonding on Friday, September 10th. To gain entry you need an all-fest wristband or you can grab a free Nike Sportswear Pass from either Jackpot Records locations starting at 10am on the day of each show. The gigs are first come, first serve and will fill up so get there early and get in line. Doors open at 3:30pm with the gig start time scheduled for 4:30pm.

All-show festival wristbands are still on sale for $90 as well as a second $65 option, which is valid for one of the two outdoor shows (The Decemberists or The National). Many individual tickets have already sold out so check out the rest of the ticketing information here.
