Big Sky Brewing Company Amphitheatre – Missoula, MT
August 12 – 13
The Decemberists said that they were “pleased as punch” to announce their inaugural step into hosting and curating their own festival. Over two days in Missoula, Mont., the Portland-native group will hang closer to frontman Colin Meloy’s hometown of Helena, Mont., who said upon announcing the festival that having been your typical moody, navel-gazing teenager in Montana he often bemoaned the lack of national bands that toured through his home state and that he is now proud to do his part to bring a bit more music to Big Sky Country.
Lineup: The Decemberists, Belle and Sebastian, The Head and the Heart, Shakey Graves, Sylvan Esso, Charles Bradley and his Extraordinaires, Real Estate, Julien Baker and more
Distance from Denver: 740 miles
