Solid Sound 2013 tickets

solid sound festival 2013 logoSolid Sound -- the Wilco "envisioned" festival at MASS MoCA -- will be back at the museum June 21-23 after skipping last summer. And "early worm" tickets go on sale Friday (November 30) at 10 am. A limited number of three-day passes will be available for $99.

After those sell out, early bird passes will be $124. And after that, regular passes will be $149. Passes for kids 7-10 are $50. Under 7 are free. Camping is available for an additional fee.

MASS MoCA says there will be a "very limited number" of single day tickets available early next year.

About what's on the slate for this time around:

Envisioned by Wilco and presented in collaboration with MASS MoCA, the weekend features two headlining Wilco concerts, a comedy cabaret programmed and hosted by John Hodgman, additional musical performances on four stages selected by Wilco and including Wilco-related side projects, a wide array of all-ages programming, and of course, world-class modern art.

This will be the third Solid Sound festival. The first two have gotten good reviews.

Come to North Adams and live this festival and welcoming community for three great days! Arrive early and settle in. Be sure to plan on staying for the Sunday concert that closes the Festival. You'll leave musically nourished and creatively content.

Solid Sound is truely an amazing event, a family friendly and well organized festival. The mood couldn't be merrier. The pace of activities is perfect. The musicians, organizers and performers are at ease as they take in performances along side festival goers.

Not to be missed, the galleries of festival host Mass Moca, as much a part of the festival as the music. Wilco, Mass Moca and North Adams. Blended and served with peace, love and Magic Hat. Enjoy.
