As we highlighted a while back, this year's Treefort Music Festival is looking mighty good-- particulary for an upstart in only its second year. Animal Collective, Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings, Dan Deacon and Delicate Steve were among those initially announced, not to mention Foxygen, Sage Francis and a host of Portland's own (Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Radiation City and Wooden Indian Burial Ground among them).
Things look even better after today's third wave of artists were announced, including hometown heroes Built to Spill playing a unique three-night residency alongside fellow newly-announced acts Camper Van Beethoven and Quasi. The all-ages run will feature a full performance of BTS' 1993 debut Ultimate Alternative Wavers, as well as entire set of covers on the final night (what's the over/under on the length of "Cortez the Killer" for that night?).
More of Portland's best and brightest are included, with Quasi joined by The Thermals, Death Songs, Genders, Shy Girls, and Natasha Kmeto, as well as names from elsewhere-- Earth, Terror Pigeon Dance Revolt, Tartufi, and El Ten Eleven among them. There's still one more wave of artists to be announced come February 14th, but you can see the full lineup as it currently stands here.
