Just announced today is the details and lineup for the 1st ever No Depression Festival to happen over what will likely be a beautiful July day, if last year’s Sub Pop Festival which happened over the same weekend is any indication. While they have forgone the paper edition, the now online-only and locally based Americana focused publication is certainly trying to keep it’s profile high around Seattle at least, and I’m glad to see they’ve been able to put together such a large event over the summer with some quality performers. The complete lineup looks like this:
That all-star review you might be asking? Yep. Pretty all-star:
An all-star revue of Seattle roots musicians will play songs oft-associated with the genres that No Depression has covered over the past 14 years. The participants include Star Anna, Sera Cahoone, Ian Moore, Zoe Muth, Mark Pickerel, Kristen Ward, and members of the Maldives and North Twin, backed by a core band featuring Ty Ballie, Jeff Fielder, Erik Eagle and Rebecca Young.
Advance tickets are $45 at Ticketmaster. A pre-sale for the tickets happens this Thursday.
