Okay, summer festivalgoers, feeling all sad about that tan
having finally faded? Cheer up, then, and mark your calendars for June 24, 25
and 26: that’s when Wilco will host their second – and let’s hope, annual from
now on – Solid Sound festival.


As with the 2010 edition (August 13-15), it’ll take place at
MASS MoCA in North Adams, MA. The official announcement containing
initial lineup details and ticket info will be made at the SS website on
Jan. 18.


You can see an exclusive photo gallery from this year’s
event elsewhere on the Blurt site. Artists included Wilco and all the Wilco members’ side
projects (Glenn Kotche’s On Fillmore, The Nels Cline Singers, The Autumn Defense
featuring John Stirratt and Pat Sansone and Mikael Jorgensen’s Pronto), plus
such artists as Mavis Staples, the Baseball Project, Avi Buffalo, Vetiver, Sir
Richard Bishop, the Books and Mountain Man.
