MusicfestNW presents Project Pabst Returns To Portland On August 26-27, 2017

Pabst Blue Ribbon continues its focus on the Portland market with the return of Project Pabst, a two-day music festival that is held in conjunction with MusicfestNW at Tom McCall Waterfront Park. For 2017 the event returns to Portland’s Waterfront Park on Satruday, August 26 and Sunday, August 27.

Headlining this year’s event is Iggy Pop, Beck, Father John Misty and Nas. Festival organizers have done a great job at creating a diverse lineup of musical talent as you can see from the complete lineup listed below.

Saturday – August 26
Iggy Pop
Father John Misty
Die Antwoord
Filthy Friends
White Reaper
The Last Artful, Dodgr

Sunday – August 27
San Fermin
Frankie Cosmos

We are excited for the local supergroup, Filthy Friends that includes a killer lineup of well known musicians. The band formed a little over a year ago and consists of Corin Tucker, Peter Buck, Scott McCaughey, Kurt Bloch and Bill Rieflin.

Project Pabst offers a unique festival experience, incorporating music, art, hands-on interactive elements, as well as food and beer at “non-festival” prices. Festival goers will be entertained with old school and new school video games in the PBRcade and Pabst Wax—an on-the-spot pressing of vinyl recordings created by festival attendees.

Tickets officially go on sale this Friday at 10:00am at Early Bird tickets are $85.00 for two days or $55.00 per day. Once these are all sold out prices will increase to $99 for a two day pass and $65.00 for daily admission.
