Mission Creek Festival 2014 Returns to Midwest With Dates and First Round Artists

Mission Creek Festival 2014 First

The Mission Creek Festival has confirmed dates for April 1-6, 2014, in Iowa City, Iowa. The first round early lineup includes Jason Isbell (formerly of the Drive-By Truckers) and legendary composer Philip Glass as well as home-state singer/songwriter, William Elliott Whitmore, Nat Baldwin from Dirty Projectors, and experimental/electronic Oneohtrix Point Never. It’s rounded out by Weekend, Wolf Eyes, The Pines, and New Bums.

Mission Creek also boasts a stellar literary component to the festival with authors including so far Rachel Kushner, Brian Evenson, and Leslie Jamison. New this year, a tech and innovation conference will be added to the week long festival.

Tickets are on sale now for a $125 silver pass which grants access to all ticketed music acts as capacity permits. See more on the offical website.

Born during a sweaty, backstage, Bonnaroo downpour, the Chief Festival Junkie's mission in life is to dance, write, and travel to every great festival that this wide world has to offer. While his identity remains a mystery, you may have already met him, probably when he helped himself to your party favors.
