Band of Horses, Explosions in the Sky, Iron and Wine, at MFNW 2011

The Portland music scene explodes this September 7-11 the the 2011 edition of MusicfestNW. Sponsored by Willamette Weekly, MFNW is scattered throughout the city. Band of Horses, Iron and Wine and Explosions In The Sky are this year’s bigger names along with Band of Horses, Shabazz Palaces, Blind Pilot, and Blitzen Trapper.

Yeah, it’s pretty fucking rad.

MFNW works with a combination of wristband and tickets to get into shows. The $70 wristband works for most venues which feature smaller bands — most of the artists below. It’s also good for ONE of the outdoor shows (Band of Horses, Explosions in the Sky, or Iron and Wine) The $115 wristband gets you into all three of the outdoor shows and the rest of the festival.
