Wilco’s Solid Sound Festival Returns To Mass MoCA

Solid Sound, Wilco’s Music and Arts Festival, returns to MASS MoCA in North Adams, Massachusetts May 27-29, 2022 for its 7th edition. Conceived by Wilco and inaugurated in 2010, Solid Sound will again present Wilco as hosts and headliners and will feature an eclectic Wilco-curated lineup alongside band members’ various independent projects.  There are few festivals that measure up to the diverse and surprising programming that is typical of Solid Sound.  From rock, jazz, indie, and hip hop artists to live falconry, star gazing workshops, and axe throwing, Solid Sound aims to delight the curious.

In addition to the expansive galleries of MASS MoCA with long-term installations by James Turrell, Laurie Anderson, Sol LeWitt, Jenny Holzer, and Anselm Kiefer, the festival includes a fully programmed comedy stage, naturalist/outdoor activities that exemplify the spirit of The Berkshires, a broad variety of family activities, local food, craft beer and cider, and more.

Last Saturday, Jeff Tweedy announced the festival’s return from the stage of his MASS MoCA benefit show. “When we return to Solid Sound, it will have been almost three years between festivals,” says Jeff Tweedy. “And as far as I’m concerned, that’s almost two years too long. We’ve got a lot of catching up to do.”  More information about tickets and next year’s performers will be announced in the early fall, check www.solidsoundfestival.com for updates.
