Portland’s newest (or oldest, depending on how you look at it) music festival has unveiled it’s first lineup. “What Was Sound” will take place May 27th at the Portland Waterfront, as part of the Portland Rose Festival’s music programming. The fest (put on by our own marketing wing, Sub Rosa Curation), features a lineup of DIIV, Woods, El Ten Eleven, Fruit Bats, Bed., Small Leaks Sink Ships, Jujuba, with more announcements on the way!
With the ever rising costs of attending a music festival, and the lackluster lineup of Sasquatch! Music Festival this year, What Was Sound offers a nice affordable alternative. Tickets are only $28 and get you access to the CityFair (who doesn’t like a carnival?), and DIIV hasn’t played Portland in 5 years (if you don’t count Pickathon). Links to tickets here.
