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
Father John Misty
The Last Artful, Dodgr
Sunday – August 27
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 PBRcadeand 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 projectpabst.com. 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.
