In 2000, MusicfestNW (MFNW) was a mere dream. The idea: Portland needed a music festival to match the towering aspirations of a city that was becoming a global player. Today, Portland is one of the most exciting cities on the planet and MusicfestNW, a 6 day festival attended by over 34,000 people has become the third largest indoor music festival in the United States and now includes 4 nights of outdoor shows in “Portland’s Living Room” Pioneer Courthouse Square.

Time magazine dubbed MusicfestNW “one of 50 Authentic American Experiences”.
“The Northwest has always been on the cutting edge when it comes to music, and here’s your chance to find out why.” –

In 2012, MusicfestNW expanded to include three days of tech programming bringing the creative talent of Portland closer together. Appropriately dubbed TechFestNW; our goal is to capture the creative spirit and drive that fuels Portland’s flourishing start-up scene. This city is filled with compelling builders and thinkers in the tech space. TechFestNW provided the perfect platform to showcase the best in tech on both a local and national scale.

This year there are 170 artists playing throughout the city at 17 different venues. The artists include:

  • Young The Giant
  • Animal Collective
  • Neko Case
  • The Head and The Heart
  • Diplo
  • Godspeed You! Black Emperor
  • Fred Armisen
  • Superchunk
  • Big Gigantic

  5. Greg Griffin August 21, 2013 at 11:56 am #

    I want to go to the festival to hear new (to me) bands.

  6. Caryn August 21, 2013 at 11:56 am #

    I never win anything and that’s sad.

    Please! I need to get out more.

  9. Erica August 21, 2013 at 12:01 pm #

    This is the first year that I will be in town for the MFNW, and the line-up looks amazing! I would love to be able to attend. Please pick me!!

  12. Denise Michelle August 21, 2013 at 12:03 pm #

    Yes, please! I need more than a day at the best music fest

  13. jared d August 21, 2013 at 12:08 pm #

    Oh wow! Such an amazing giveaway. I have special connections to a lot of the bands at this years MF: CHVRCHES, Flume, Young the Giant, etc. I’ve been following them for a long time and it would be unbelievable to soak up and saturate myself with this wonderful music with my lady friend.

  14. Oliver August 21, 2013 at 12:11 pm #

    I am a poor poor music lover. Please please please let me get what I want!

  15. Esteban Furtive August 21, 2013 at 12:12 pm #

    Somebody needs to be at the Bonnie Prince Billy show to keep him away from the children. I believe I can be that person and I’ll bring another responsible adult who will only purchase soft drinks.

  16. Nicola August 21, 2013 at 12:12 pm #

    Flying across the country to my favourite city for this. Would love to score a free pair of tix. Live music = a reason to live!

  17. Stephen Barry August 21, 2013 at 12:22 pm #

    I’m in Denver. I use to live in Portland. I miss all you guys. And even though there’s a Voodoo Doughnut coming to Denver, it won’t be the same. Please let me come back for a few days. For me, for the music, for the love of all that’s musically holy. Alright then, see you soon.

  18. Ian August 21, 2013 at 12:22 pm #

    170 artists playing throughout the city at 17 different venues?! You can count me in. It sounds like a music lovers paradise! Some of my favorite bands are playing this year. Deerhunter, The Joy Formitable ….ANIMAL COLLECTIVE!!! Holy cats! oh, and Fred Armisen? FRED frick’n ARMISEN?! C’MON! I wish I could afford a wrist band for my girl friend and I. We’re music lovers and get out to see music as much as possible but these wristbands are just too pricy for us this year. C’mon PDX PIPELINE, send some of that MFNW ticket love over this way please :)

  19. Bennett August 21, 2013 at 12:23 pm #

    Drench me in live music

  20. Sian August 21, 2013 at 12:24 pm #

    We would so much love to see all these musicians on this fabulous long weekend of culture. I could not begin to say who I’d like to see the most as I want to see them all!! This year is the best line up yet. On a sad note, listen up all you cyclists. Make sure the bike thieves don’t leave you walking home without your bike, as happened to me last year :(

  21. Sarah August 21, 2013 at 12:26 pm #

    The Head and the Heart’s music literally saved my life. I was in a bad place, and someone showed me their music and it changed who I was and pulled me out of my dark spot. I would love nothing more than to see the band that rescued me, in person.

  22. Mariah August 21, 2013 at 12:34 pm #

    Love The Head and The Heart and Portland! Mixed together would be the best way to top my summer! It definitely would be something to remember!

  23. Aaron Smith August 21, 2013 at 12:36 pm #

    Give me those tickets and I will bring my sexy Nikon and give up all the photos to y’all at Pipeline…and I will promise to have a great time!!!

  24. Mike August 21, 2013 at 12:39 pm #

    Can’t wait to see Godspeed!

  25. Michelle August 21, 2013 at 12:41 pm #

    My boyfriend and I just got some big news about a new addition to our family, which means this could be our last big festival for a long time….. I would love to be able to surprise him and enjoy some of our last moments alone with our favorite bands!

  26. Robert Renning August 21, 2013 at 12:44 pm #

    I’d love to take my wife to see Neko Case!

  27. Suzy Q August 21, 2013 at 12:45 pm #

    Neko! Neko!Neko!!!!!!!!

  28. Sean August 21, 2013 at 12:46 pm #

    I once purchased a MFNW VIP band and was turned away at nearly every venue due to overcrowding. I’d say my music Karma should be kicking into effect by now. Besides, Neko Case has a secret crush on me and is dying to meet me.

  29. Jason August 21, 2013 at 12:52 pm #

    I may be blind but I am not deaf! I would love to FEEL the love, beauty and ecstasy that would be acoustically transmitted throughout my body and resonate with my spirit. Fingers crossed I get lucky enough. Thank you for this opportunity!

  30. Tammi August 21, 2013 at 12:57 pm #

    I deserve to win this because it’s my most favorite weekend of the year and I’ve recently been laid off from my job so this will be the first year I don’t go unless I win this. Make a music lovers year, PRETTY PLEASE!

  31. Jolene August 21, 2013 at 12:58 pm #

    I’ve always wanted to go to MusicFest NW. Super jealous of friends who get to go each year. Why not let my first year experience be with a wristband won from you guys? The lineup looks amazing!

  32. Megan Andricos August 21, 2013 at 1:00 pm #

    MusicFest NW is the best of the best in September and I want to jam out with my clam out at it!

  33. Maya Muñoz-Tobón August 21, 2013 at 1:00 pm #

    oh my gods!! I’ve been a Portland resident for about 8 years and I always make sure to attend this awesome festival to support the creative energy of the city. Unfortunately, I’ve been unemployed for a few months now and I was planning of skipping the festival this year. So free tickets will make my summer!! Thanks!!

  34. Brian August 21, 2013 at 1:05 pm #


  35. Jen August 21, 2013 at 1:06 pm #

    My favorite music week in Portland and what an awesome line-up!!!! I would sooooooo love to go please please!!!!

  36. Jon Newton August 21, 2013 at 1:09 pm #

    Wow, what a great prize. Pdx Pipeline comes through again. I hope I win, there’s some amazing acts at this years fest.

  37. Tabitha August 21, 2013 at 1:10 pm #

    Because I’m broke, and honestly, I’d probably spend money I don’t have going to the festival that could probably be best served to pay off my bills or buy books for school. Yes, responsibility.

  38. wallace August 21, 2013 at 1:15 pm #

    What everyone else said here + a bag of chips!

  39. Danielle August 21, 2013 at 1:19 pm #

    OH MON DIEU! That’s fantastic! I will top a bag of chips with a box of voodoo!

  40. Simone Castro August 21, 2013 at 1:21 pm #

    MFNW is sooooon! PLease PLEase Please grace me with your awesome tickets only here on PDX PIPELINE! love you guys and all your work and thanks so for all the free tixx every week!

  41. Andy August 21, 2013 at 1:21 pm #

    I’ve already taken the week off to maximize the stupid fun I’m gonna have. Full bender mode ENGAGE.

  42. Kim.e August 21, 2013 at 1:23 pm #

    Such a great indie lineup this year! Wish I had the money for my own wristband. Please I would love to win this!

  43. Matthias Anderson August 21, 2013 at 1:25 pm #

    Another great lineup of talent.

  44. Ghassan August 21, 2013 at 1:27 pm #

    I was looking to just go to a few shows to save money. It would be amazing to get to go to everything!

  45. Becky August 21, 2013 at 1:38 pm #

    I would love to take my son for his birthday

  46. Mel C. August 21, 2013 at 1:43 pm #

    I would love to attend. I haven’t seen any shows all summer and I’m a broke, busy grad student. (Cue violins).

  47. KL August 21, 2013 at 1:44 pm #

    Before I moved to Portland, I never experienced live music. Since 2011, I have now seen 37 live shows and counting. It has unquestionably opened my eyes and ears to new bands, new sounds, new experiences, and new friends. Isn’t that what it’s all about? I would love to attend to keep this live music train rolling while I’m still here. It makes you appreciate the artist and their work so much more. Seeing all these bands would be a dream come true.

    • ruby August 21, 2013 at 3:17 pm #

      Yes! I’d love to see a bunch of great music!

  48. Michelle August 21, 2013 at 1:46 pm #

    Music Beer Music Beer Repeat

  49. Megan August 21, 2013 at 1:46 pm #

    Because it is so hard to choose one of those groups to go see with the regular wristband, and I can’t afford the all show pass on my own!

  50. Stacey August 21, 2013 at 1:51 pm #

    Joy Formidable!

  51. Theo August 21, 2013 at 1:55 pm #

    Charles Bradley.

  52. Kimi August 21, 2013 at 2:00 pm #

    Because I’m a MFNW junkie!!! The last two years, I fit in 31 & 32 shows (respectively) in one weekend!!

  53. Jamie August 21, 2013 at 2:05 pm #

    Oh wow, so many of my favorite bands are going! This would be one of the last Portland things I’m able to do before I leave for college!

  54. Ann August 21, 2013 at 2:21 pm #

    I’m too broke paying back student loans to afford this AMAZING FESTIVAL any other way and I’ve loved Neko Case for forever. And K.Flay is an inspiration. And Bonnie “Prince” Billy is sexy. And GOD SPEED YOU BLACK EMPEROR IS PLAYING. I hope my all caps works on you.

  55. Daniel August 21, 2013 at 3:08 pm #

    I would love to kick off my new life in Portland with this awesome festival! I need to see CHVRCHES! It’d be so wonderful to win!

  56. Brian August 21, 2013 at 3:10 pm #

    This year, my tastes and preferences align almost perfectly with the schedule with completely minimized timing conflicts. Fully prepared to take full advantage all day every day. Stoked!

  57. birdonit August 21, 2013 at 3:21 pm #

    Obviously, I want to win this…obviously.

  58. Garrett Brown August 21, 2013 at 3:28 pm #

    For a music lover, this is a dream. MFNW is double cherry pie, platform double-suade, and disco lemonade all wrapped into one juicy cocktail for my ear holes. Walking into each concert and listening to 170 different bands would be the cats pajamas. Spare a dude the cheese and leave the tickets on my rock and roll soul. That’d be rad.

  59. Tamara Colpitts August 21, 2013 at 3:32 pm #

    My husband has always wanted to see God Speed You Black Emperor….. By winning these tickets I can fulfill that dream for him. He would fall in love with me all over again. Pick us……

  60. Jason Tinsley August 21, 2013 at 3:33 pm #

    This is an awesome line up. sign me up please

  61. Meghan August 21, 2013 at 3:57 pm #

    Since moving to Portland I’ve been interested in going to this festival!! So much good music this year! My boyfriend just graduated and it would be a wonderful surprise for him!! He’s worked so hard to become a nurse. Would be a definite treat!!

  62. James August 21, 2013 at 4:00 pm #

    So much music, so little time. Hell i’ll make the time. This is a great line up.
    Thank you for this opportunity.

  63. Marty Party August 21, 2013 at 4:27 pm #

    ARE YOU FREAKIN’ KIDDIN’ ME? I use apostrophes like a real MFNW bandit. Gimme them wristies!

  64. Courtney August 21, 2013 at 5:11 pm #

    I’d like to win because I’m super excited to see Superchunk and Godspeed!

  65. ka2loo August 21, 2013 at 5:32 pm #

    this would be amazing…i need to see charles bradley..

  66. andrea Bean August 21, 2013 at 5:50 pm #

    Oh man oh man! What an amazing line up! I’d so love the chance to see each of these shows. Please pick me, I could really use some laughs, boogying, and joy for my soul!!

  67. Kacy August 21, 2013 at 6:11 pm #

    Every year there is sooo much awesome music but Im never able to pay for it all. So it would be incredible to not have to narrow it down to a couple performances!!! I’d love to just eat, breathe, sleep music for a few days ;-)

  68. Tony August 21, 2013 at 6:46 pm #

    I’ll be moving houses right before then so I won’t have money to buy any tickets!

    I need this!

  69. Clara Gillet August 21, 2013 at 6:48 pm #

    This festival would be true summer sunshine to win tix to as I am unable to afford many shows this summer and am able to afford no festivals. :D < me if I win

  70. Lee August 21, 2013 at 6:51 pm #

    Neko Case & The Moondoggies<<<<

  75. Ashley Black August 22, 2013 at 6:33 am #

    This is such an AMAZING ticket prize! Such a great lineup of bands, wonderful venues, and all of this in my favorite city! Please pick me for this prize! I will not let those tickets go to waste!

    Yes please mehbeh?

  81. Joe Barstow August 22, 2013 at 9:15 am #

    I would love to attend Music Fest NW! I used to be a traveling musician. My opening act involved playing the stand up base with my toes and the harmonica with my butt. Unfortunately My Tour de’ Pants came to and abrupt end when I lost my leg due to a flesh eating bacteria and no one wants to see my butt playing harmonica solo act. Getting these tickets would be a dream come true! I would forget all about my lost appendage and I could hop around to some of the best tunes in the NW. Thank you for the consideration. – One Leggy Joe

  82. Marion August 22, 2013 at 9:31 am #

    This sounds amazing! Being new to Portland, this would be an awesome introduction to the music scene Portland has to offer!

  83. B. Roach August 22, 2013 at 9:33 am #

    Music, and many other things, are better when experienced in Portland. Have car will travel, have have legs will dance, have a voice wlll scream!

  84. Ash August 22, 2013 at 9:38 am #

    Portland, music, my crazy friend who loves music, our bikes, beer, and more music and more beer would make for an awesome getaway from our sorry ass town. Help us escape from our reality!

  85. That Girl August 22, 2013 at 9:39 am #

    I win, you lose. I share, we win!

  86. Nicole August 22, 2013 at 10:03 am #

    No Cochella, no SxSW, no Bonnaroo. Musicfest NW is where it is at and I want to be there!

  87. Karlo T August 22, 2013 at 10:18 am #

    A comment to win tickets? Count me in. Great line up of artists who would be awesome to see live. Not only that but it would be a great escape from the aftermath of apartment flood ordeal. Karma for the win?!

  88. Lauren August 22, 2013 at 11:02 am #

    I haven’t been able to go in years because of the price.

  89. Wade August 22, 2013 at 11:05 am #


  90. Jenn August 22, 2013 at 11:06 am #

    I would love to have the opportunity to attend MFNW this year! The lineup is amazing and after being laid off earlier this summer, it’s been hard for me to try and attend/afford any shows at all. This would be such a treat!

    Thanks for the opportunity :)

  91. Maria August 22, 2013 at 11:07 am #

    One of the best parts about living in Portland is the music scene! I’d be thrilled to win these tickets!

  92. Matt August 22, 2013 at 11:07 am #

    I’ve attended parts of MFNW in the past, but I’ve never had a full-festival wristband. It would be great to be able to take in the whole festival this year. It is an amazing lineup!

  93. Austin Maxwell August 22, 2013 at 11:08 am #

    My girlfriend and I want these!!!!!!!!!

  94. Enya August 22, 2013 at 11:09 am #

    This will be the first MusicFest NW for me after staying in Oregon for 5 years. Unfortunately, my visa is going to expire and this is probably my only chance to go. Let me go to dance with Animal Collective please!

  95. Scott H August 22, 2013 at 11:09 am #

    Such an incredible lineup this year!! I would be absolutely ecstatic if I won the wristband(s)! Huzzah!

  96. RochelleDK August 22, 2013 at 11:10 am #

    Awesome line up. Awesome. Festival. Awesome city. Awesome if I get to visit from Boise for such a great event!

  97. Matt August 22, 2013 at 11:11 am #

    I’d love a wristband! Especially after getting jerked out of my pass for Bumbershoot, this will be a busy week in Portland. 6 days of great shows and day parties. My liver needs this!

  98. Jen August 22, 2013 at 11:11 am #

    I’ve regarded MFNW as a religious holiday for the 6 years that I’ve lived in Portland – already taken the time off work to fully embrace the chaos… but haven’t purchased my wristband yet. A win would mean not having to choose between MFNW and FunFunFun in Austin!

  99. Tim August 22, 2013 at 11:13 am #

    Would like to win tickets it would be the fifth year going

  100. Rosa August 22, 2013 at 11:15 am #

    I would love, love, looooove to see Animal Collective. I completely spaced on getting tickets. :(

  101. Ann August 22, 2013 at 11:20 am #

    I suuuuuuper want to see Washed Out!

  102. Aran Lenart August 22, 2013 at 11:20 am #

    I would love these tickets because I have a friend going through a lot of financial problems whose future at school is looking questionable who I would love to take to try and brighten up her life. Seriously, these tickets would mean the world to me. Anything to make my best friend smile is worth it. Thank you for considering!

    Just moved here from Seattle and as a fan of Bumbershoot and CHBP up north, I would love to sample the music scene here at MFNW. I want to fall in love with Portland! Music is my life! Pick me!!

  104. Ashley August 22, 2013 at 11:26 am #

    I’d love a wristband because I could otherwise not afford to go and I’ve discovered some of my favorite bands from this festival!

  105. Candice August 22, 2013 at 11:26 am #

    I really want these tix.

  106. Lorraine August 22, 2013 at 11:39 am #

    This is the best festival in Pacific Northwest! So many bands I want to see I’m having a hard time choosing!

  107. A. Wilson August 22, 2013 at 11:42 am #

    Every year Muiscfest NW does an amazing job of curating bands, I try to go to as many of the shows that I can. It would be an amazing luxury to have a pass and see some of the bands I might normally skip because I know there is many a gem I have not discovered among these bands….and I would go see Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy twice, one of my all times favs!

  108. Matt August 22, 2013 at 11:55 am #

    I’m currently in between jobs and a wristband would give me the opportunity to actually attend this year! I really want to see Godspeed, Bonnie Prince Billy, Mt. Eerie, among many others.


  109. Ashley August 22, 2013 at 12:04 pm #

    Come on, look at that lineup! Do we really need another reason to attend? Okay, I’ll give you seven: Bonnie Prince Billy, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, !!!, Fred Armisen, Cvurches, Superchunk, and John Vanderslice.

  110. Keenan August 22, 2013 at 12:07 pm #

    Can’t wait for MFNW, this will be the 4th year in a row I’ve been here for it. It’d be awesome to win tickets since those wristbands aren’t cheap!! Thanks for another awesome giveaway PDX Pipeline!!

  111. mayoleeinpdx August 22, 2013 at 12:10 pm #

    Pick me! Must see Deep Sea Diver

  112. Robyn August 22, 2013 at 12:12 pm #

    Animal Collective, Diplo, Chvrches, Big G, Poolside?! I can’t even list everyone I want to see. it’d be too long!

    I can’t afford a wristband this year, so fingers crossed!!!

  113. Kimberly August 22, 2013 at 12:13 pm #

    Would love to win tickets! Excited – I have never been to MFNW but the lineup looks amazing.

  114. Natalie August 22, 2013 at 12:42 pm #

    Neko, Deerhunter, Washed Out, Chvrches…nothing would make me happier! Tickets please!

  115. Sara August 22, 2013 at 12:55 pm #

    Pick me, because Chvrches and Diplo and Neko Case and The Helio Sequence want me in their audience!

  116. Michael August 22, 2013 at 12:55 pm #

    pick me…pick me…pick me!! i have got to see joey bada$$, superchunk (one more time before they die) and bonnie prince billy…and neko of course!!

  117. Jimi Clarke August 22, 2013 at 12:55 pm #

    I have my compass pointed towards NXNW!
    Take me there – I need tix!

  118. Vienna August 22, 2013 at 12:58 pm #

    Unbelievable line up. Will be absurd to miss

  119. Kevin August 22, 2013 at 1:00 pm #

    Would love to win! The reasons: ANY excuse to travel to Portland is a win in my book, but to go to one of the best music festivals in the country too?? Would die for a chance to see Animal Collective and GODSPEED YOU BLACK EMPEROR!!

  120. Anali August 22, 2013 at 1:03 pm #

    Last year I was lucky enough to go to a Passion Pit concert. At the time I thought it was just a concert, until I got approached by two Vitamin water reps that were giving out two all show wristbands. My friend and I almost had them but unfortunately we couldn’t receive them because we were underage. Now that I’m 18 I’m able to do a lot more things that I couldn’t before. I want to take every opportunity that I have now that I’m young, but not having a job and about to start college soon makes it hard being able to afford things that I’d love to do. That being said I would greatly appreciate something like this. Please and thank you.

  121. Cory August 22, 2013 at 2:15 pm #

    Because I WANNA ROCK!!!!!!!!!

  122. Shelby August 22, 2013 at 2:15 pm #

    *Unique plea for wristband here*

  123. Marshall James August 22, 2013 at 2:24 pm #

    CHVRCHES. Cannot wait to see them again! Plus, I will be passing through town on my west coast road trip right at that time and would love to come!

  124. David Alport August 22, 2013 at 2:26 pm #

    With this wristband I will see music at as many hours and days of the festival as is possible! Thanks for considering me.


  125. Michelle August 22, 2013 at 2:27 pm #

    Because in less than a month I will be working full-time while enrolled in a Masters program = no social life, no discretionary income, no fun. I could use this before I lose it all!

  126. Candace Elliott August 22, 2013 at 2:29 pm #

    I would be forever grateful to win tickets. I would go as far as to jump out of a plane, but at someone else’s expense. If I cant afford the concert tickets then I certainly wont be able to afford the sky diving adventure.

  127. jules August 22, 2013 at 2:29 pm #

    It’s my birthday and i need some fun! thanks!

  128. Bill August 22, 2013 at 2:31 pm #

    Live music to counter the trials and tribulations of struggling writer-dom. I’m doing it for the inspiration while I write a book. Or perhaps just because I’ve never been to MFNW and … wow, Neko Case ?! … ooh, John Vanderslice! … ha, Brian Posehn … yikes, so many bands I probably should have heard of but I’ve been stuck behind an overly-blank screen. Wristbands solve writer’s block, right?

  129. Deanna Jones August 22, 2013 at 2:33 pm #

    Have never been and would love to go!

  130. James August 22, 2013 at 2:37 pm #

    The roommate and I have spent all of the summer inside studying for the bar and CPA exam. This festival would be the one highlight of what looked like an awesome PDX summer!

  131. Bill Stewart August 22, 2013 at 2:38 pm #

    Yes, please!

  132. Steve C August 22, 2013 at 2:40 pm #

    Who wouldn’t want to win this?

  133. Tina Kohlet August 22, 2013 at 2:40 pm #

    I would love to win the tickets so my friends could go along with me to one of the best music festivals ever. Definitely a great end to another Oregon summer!

  134. Marty Anderson August 22, 2013 at 2:43 pm #

    You had me at free………

  135. tiana August 22, 2013 at 2:44 pm #

    music makes the world go round

  136. Sam H. August 22, 2013 at 2:53 pm #

    Was only able to go to one show last year (A-Trak) which rocked. There are soooo many more bands I want to see this year and new bands I’d like to check out. All the Roseland shows, Ra Ra Riot, Pioneer Square shows, Fred Armison, and on and on and on. This would make my summer, year, and foreseeable future.

  137. Dave August 22, 2013 at 2:54 pm #

    What an amazing and eclectic group of bands. I would love to win these tickets so I could attend this wonderful event with my wife. It would be a great way to ease our transition from having two college kids around all summer to being empty nesters.

  138. Chris August 22, 2013 at 2:55 pm #

    I’d love to win because I’m a Domestic God, Stay-At-Home-Dad, who hardly ever gets out of the house or any ME time.

  139. Laura Nelson August 22, 2013 at 3:01 pm #

    Thank you for the opportunity to win these tickets.

  140. kRISTEN August 22, 2013 at 3:02 pm #

    Yes, please! What an awesome lineup!

  141. Benjamin August 22, 2013 at 3:04 pm #

    Four years ago I had a wonderful at MFNW! Just officially moved here and would love to recreate that experience. Help a new kid out!

  142. Benjamin August 22, 2013 at 3:05 pm #

    Four years ago I had a wonderful time at MFNW! Just officially moved here and would love to recreate that experience. Help a new kid out!

  143. Katie August 22, 2013 at 3:14 pm #

    Oh man, I want to see so many of those bands, especially team dresch

  144. Holly August 22, 2013 at 3:39 pm #

    This would be so great. Pick me! :)

  145. Anthony August 22, 2013 at 3:39 pm #

    holy crap, this would be incredible! so many great bands are playing this year and i’m the poorest I’ve been in a long time, so a free pass would be amazing!

  146. ams August 22, 2013 at 3:44 pm #

    We recently returned to Portland after a harrowing 9 months in the Town That Shall Not Be Named and are completely traumatized. What we need is an overdose of sweaty bodies shaking to loud noises, floors sticky with spilled beer, nonexistent crowd control and squinty eyes trying to see the skinny, flailing bodies onstage through the sea of lit cell phone screens held high in the air–yes, all that is familiar, safe, young, fun, and detrimental to my hearing. I promise to bring earplugs just in case?

  147. Jonah August 22, 2013 at 3:50 pm #

    This guy is the droid you’re looking for!

    **PDX Pipeline**

    This would be an amazing father and daughter bonding experience!!! Please help my dad and I enjoy this great music festival in the best town on earth :) If we are presented with these wristbands, we will surely tag our festival pix to #pdxpipeline!

  150. Jessica August 22, 2013 at 3:53 pm #

    music makes me lose control

  151. Gino August 22, 2013 at 3:56 pm #

    I just moved here and I’ve already been to six shows all around Portland and I haven’t been to a venue that I didn’t like. I’d love to get these wristbands and explore more of Portland’s amazing music scene, especially seeing Neko Case at Pioneer Square!

    • Arni August 22, 2013 at 4:32 pm #

      So many great shows!! And so much money for someone who is unemployed. Send me pdxpipeline!!

  152. Marci Castillo August 22, 2013 at 4:06 pm #

    Yes! I would totally love for you to give me a wristband to see amazing music.

  153. Lindsey Uhl August 22, 2013 at 4:12 pm #

    This line up is killer

  154. Amit Gordon August 22, 2013 at 4:47 pm #

    Musicfest is the best! But I can’t afford it this year :( would love a wristband!

  155. Jasmine August 22, 2013 at 4:47 pm #

    Please pick me! Some of my favorite bands are playing- most especially Typhoon. Would be a great way to spend my last week in this area before I leave for school!

  156. Bryna August 22, 2013 at 4:50 pm #

    Would love to finally be able to attend MFNW! :D

  157. Jeremy August 22, 2013 at 4:57 pm #

    Soooo much good music! I’m begging… please… I’m on my knees!

  158. d@Ve August 22, 2013 at 4:57 pm #

    woah. my friend arrives labour day and sticks through that weekend. he’s gonna be blown away if we get these!!

  159. Lisa Troncoso August 22, 2013 at 4:57 pm #

    A girl’s gotta dance

  160. Zach August 22, 2013 at 5:01 pm #

    I haven’t ever been able to get the full MFNW experience but I’ve LOVED the few shows I’ve been to in the past few years. Le1f’s gonna go HAM, Chvrches and Diplo are gonna be cray, can’t wait for Animal Collective, Gold Fields, P.O.S., Youth Lagoon, or Joey Bada$$ either! SUCH A GREAT LINE UP THIS YEAR!

  161. Ed August 22, 2013 at 5:01 pm #

    would be great to see this ridiculous line up. It’d be a nice ending to this summer.

  162. steadyshow August 22, 2013 at 5:36 pm #

    yo’, to the sho’!

  163. Dylan August 22, 2013 at 5:51 pm #

    I would love to win so I don’t have to keep checking craigslist for affordable wristbands daily ^_^

  164. w August 22, 2013 at 5:52 pm #


  165. Sam Gomez August 22, 2013 at 5:55 pm #

    The Man is down.

  166. debra poscharscky August 22, 2013 at 6:34 pm #

    Pioneer Square as Portland’s living room, I just love it. Have never heard of that in anyplace I have lived!

  167. Meghan August 22, 2013 at 6:43 pm #

    I would love to go! Please please please?

  168. Minna August 22, 2013 at 6:51 pm #

    Thanks for the chance to win! This would be the absolutely perfect gift for my husband, who has been taking care of me since I got hit by a car one month ago.

  169. Audrey August 22, 2013 at 7:02 pm #

    cuz plzzzzzzzzzz

  170. Scott August 22, 2013 at 7:02 pm #

    Musicfest NW, your musical exploits abound,
    yet access to a free wristband can only be found,
    by commenting here,
    on the most excellent website from far and near,
    of course, its!!!!!!

  171. Jeremy Akins August 22, 2013 at 7:05 pm #


  172. Sue Rosemarin August 22, 2013 at 7:08 pm #

    An amazing opportunity!!!! How can I not grovel & beg to be chosen???

  173. Steve Ferrero August 22, 2013 at 7:09 pm #

    Sweet baby Jesus! If I win these tix, I’m gonna get me a lottery ticket too. Unlike everyone else here, I would really love to go. Thanks!

  174. Jessica Grise August 22, 2013 at 8:39 pm #

    Just moved here at the beginning of June and it would be our first festival in Portland! Want to go anyways, but cannot really afford tickets after the 3,200 mile move. :-( I long ago established a philosophy that we must go to every concert we want to see (enjoy life and not regret missing something), but unfortunately it just isn’t happening for this one unless we score some freebies!

  175. Misti August 22, 2013 at 8:41 pm #

    My fiancé has been deployed with the Navy all summer. These tickets would be a great pick me up from missing her!!!

  176. Tyler August 22, 2013 at 9:23 pm #

    My new wife and I (married 8 days ago) first met at an Animal Collective show…we then saw each other again at a Ra Ra Riot show and the rest is history. It would be truly amazing to have the chance to see those acts again, in the same week, as well as many of our other favorite acts. :)

  177. Sarah August 22, 2013 at 10:47 pm #

    I must have tickets! Please give a starving student free tickets to this awesome event lineup!

  178. Becky August 22, 2013 at 10:47 pm #

    I am a lonely single lady, but I bet I could gets a 4 day boyfriend with an extra ticket to MFNW! Also music. I kinda like it.

  179. Robin W. August 22, 2013 at 10:52 pm #

    Young the Giant, Animal Collective, The Head and the Heart, and Neko Case are all on my “lets go for a run” play list…these are some of the artists that get me through 26.2 miles, and soon…beyond.
    Pick me, and I’ll dedicate my next marathon to PDX-Pipeline.

  180. Robbie Rowe August 22, 2013 at 11:17 pm #

    Yes, Yes, Yes! I wanna go coz it will be FUN!

  181. Ryan August 22, 2013 at 11:33 pm #


  182. Duritz August 22, 2013 at 11:55 pm #

    It’d be pretty sweet to get some tix, man. I missed The Joy Formidable a couple years ago and have been looking to catch several other acts too.

  183. April August 23, 2013 at 12:52 am #

    I want to go to there.

  184. Kelsey Tate August 23, 2013 at 1:08 am #

    I would really love to go to MFNW because I’ve always loved seeing live music and am absolutely ecstatic about the lineup this year; however, my husband lost his job back in April and so I have been working 2 jobs to support both us and our 2 year old daughter. It would mean a lot to me to get out and enjoy some music and forget our financial issues for a bit!

  185. pretentiouspdx August 23, 2013 at 1:41 am #

    This is one of biggest events in Portland. Who WOULDN’T want tickets to this?

  186. Emmakat August 23, 2013 at 5:12 am #

    I want to see all the shows! But I couldn’t decide so I don’t have tickets yet. Sad. Unless I win some!

  187. mary b August 23, 2013 at 6:02 am #

    Music, what can I say, my love, my heart, my soul, my passion, the biggest reason I can wake up and face the day, not to mention can we say Godspeed you Black Emperor?

  188. BettyJean August 23, 2013 at 6:05 am #

    Worth taking the chance

  189. Teri August 23, 2013 at 6:54 am #

    I’d love to win tickets because this festival is going to be a mini friend/family reunion! A cousin I haven’t seen in 8 years and a friend in 5 years plan on meeting me and my partner there! Either way, it’s going to be great!

  190. Sarah Lu August 23, 2013 at 9:03 am #

    I’d love to check out Justin Townes Earle!

  191. Jay August 23, 2013 at 9:29 am #


  192. Derek August 23, 2013 at 9:29 am #

    Why would I like to win these tickets? Though I love living in Portland and I have had many great times in this awesome city I’m taking a job teaching English in another country and I’ll be gone for a year before moving back to this fine city. There isn’t much live music of this sort there so being able to attend MusicFestNW would be a really special and an awesome way to say goodbye for a while to this awesome place and the thriving culture it has going on.

  193. Pete and Repete August 23, 2013 at 9:50 am #

    can only say, whoa! that would be a dream come true!

  194. Richard August 23, 2013 at 10:17 am #

    Hi! I have never been and would love to go with my friends!

  195. free August 23, 2013 at 10:17 am #

    because neko case loves me.

  196. Abernathy August 23, 2013 at 10:32 am #

    When I passed go I didn’t get any dollars. Would love to see the show but being selected as the winner is the only way I’ll get to go. Come on random selection bring the live music to my ears!

  197. Barry Cochran August 23, 2013 at 10:42 am #

    Love live music!

  198. Amber August 23, 2013 at 11:54 am #

    Free MusicFest NW wristbands?! You guys (and I’m sure gals) rock!! My husband and I packed up and moved here a week ago from the east coast and this would be the perfect welcome to Portland!! Fingers crossed!!

  199. BITE August 23, 2013 at 11:58 am #

    so glad i live here now and will make it to this! passed through town last year and was teased by it being so close and yet so far away!

  200. Natasha Digges August 23, 2013 at 2:26 pm #

    This is my first summer in the NW. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate it than at MusicFest NW. I love PDX Pipeline and amazing music!

  201. Carina August 23, 2013 at 2:29 pm #

    I want to witness Bradford Cox’s crazy on-stage antics, watch the Chromatics in hope they’ll play their gorgeous cover of New Order’s “Ceremony,” swoon to the sounds of Youth Lagoon, sing along to Bleached, and finally check out local artists Wooden Indian Burial Ground.

  202. Kat August 23, 2013 at 2:41 pm #

    This sounds like one awesome lineup!

  203. Kevin August 23, 2013 at 3:26 pm #

    Music is my life and this the perfect way for me to go since i never have money

  204. matt August 23, 2013 at 5:05 pm #

    I can haz wristbands?

  205. Chris B. August 23, 2013 at 5:42 pm #

    MFNW is the best ! This year has an incredible line-up and would be even more incredible to see all of it !!!

    Hoping I can go with said wristband, and enjoy in the musical delight !

  206. Andrew Pratt August 23, 2013 at 7:07 pm #

    I’d like to go to Music Festival NorthWest strictly to meet new people and have a great time! I’m new to Portland and would love a good reason to hit up all the awesome venues!

    A great reason to pick me: I will bring a ton of free Neon Energy Drinks and Swag! I’m the Portland Representative and Independent Distributor for the Healthiest Energy Drink in the World!

    100% All Natural. Made in America, Headquarter located in Bend Oregon!

    Pick me!

  207. Cassady August 23, 2013 at 7:31 pm #

    As others have mentioned, MFNW is going to be cray-cray. I agree with this assessment and would like to participating in making-hey during this festive event.


  208. Barbara Richardson August 23, 2013 at 7:32 pm #

    I want to go SO bad!! I would be happy never to win anything again if I won these tickets. This years line up is killer!

  209. Sara Goldman August 23, 2013 at 9:37 pm #

    We have been trying to make this happen for years! Free tickets sure would help.

  210. Lila August 23, 2013 at 11:34 pm #

    Very into Authentic American Experiences.

  211. Jessica August 24, 2013 at 12:18 am #

    I would like to attend because it would make for a great date. I was recently laid off and have very little funding to facilitate taking out my boyfriend, who is a luthier and in two bands. Music is his life, and several bands that will be playi we both enjoy greatly. It would be the most amazing surprise I could offer.

  212. Aaron August 24, 2013 at 1:19 am #

    Pickwick. Plus time with friends!

  213. Jessica August 24, 2013 at 3:32 am #

    I would like to attend to see old favorites and make new ones.

  214. Casey August 24, 2013 at 3:34 am #

    I want to attend because I haven’t gotten to attend a music festival since moving here despite moving here for music.

  215. Skip Stone August 24, 2013 at 7:35 am #

    The 1st time I attended this, it was 1995 and it was called NXNW. Over the years I have been able to catch individual shows on various nights. My work schedule always conflicted with the nights of these shows or the fact I was living in Eastern Oregon for 8 years made it difficult. Now the time is right, I have time to attend the full schedule, but the budget is tight. I still may catch at least a band or two. I know there is a few bands in this event my kids want to see, this would help immensely. Thank you for this opportunity. :-)

  216. jocephus August 24, 2013 at 9:12 am #

    i’ve been a pipeline subscriber since the beginning, and have never been picked for the free tix…c’mon guys!!

  217. Elizabeth Flick August 24, 2013 at 10:19 am #

    Please pick me! JUst recently moved to PDX and I am already in love with the music scene! Thanks so much for the opportunity!

  218. Michelle August 24, 2013 at 11:07 am #

    AWESOME MUSAK! In my favorite town!

  219. Eric August 24, 2013 at 12:30 pm #

    I have never been to a music festival except as the sound tech for a band where I only had time to work their show and then leave so I would love the opportunity to see a bunch of bands, none of whom I have seen before, and also check out the sound systems of the different venues that Music Fest NW utilizes.

  220. David August 24, 2013 at 1:48 pm #

    I’ve never been before to this event but I’m really impressed with the lineup which is very eclectic. Youth Lagoon is a true artist and the band I would be most excited to see. If I don’t get tickets I will be outside the venue listening.

    It’s been kind of a rough summer but I’m coming back strong. I have no money at the moment and music is my passion so this would be really special for me.

    Thank you for this opportunity! Fingers are crossed!

  221. Dana Wales August 24, 2013 at 3:22 pm #

    I finally have a job where I would be able to go! I wanna win so bad!

  222. Destry Brown August 24, 2013 at 3:24 pm #

    Would love to win so me and my girl could go out!

  223. mike krzeszak August 24, 2013 at 4:16 pm #

    Would love an all access pass (wristband). Have never been to this event. Going this year no mater what.

  224. Galen August 24, 2013 at 5:06 pm #

    Smells like beef jerky and I love beef jerky.Please let me wear your wristbands this year!

    here’s hoping for the big win

  226. LaurenPDX August 24, 2013 at 5:10 pm #

    For the first time ever I don’t work nights! I can actually go to shows! These wristbands would be an amazing treat :)

  227. Marcy Sullwold August 24, 2013 at 7:57 pm #

    I love MFNW!

  228. Marcy Sullwold August 24, 2013 at 7:58 pm #

    MFNW would be a highlight to go to!

  229. Kelly Northway August 24, 2013 at 8:30 pm #

    Whoever wins these wristbands is oh so lucky! Why wouldn’t someone want to win? Sooo many amazing bands! I want to win so I can see Washed Out, Austra & Glass Candy just to name a few!

  230. Dustin August 24, 2013 at 8:38 pm #

    Been in Portland 10 years and have never been able to go because, like many Portlanders, I do good work and make peanuts. This prize would make my year!

  231. Karl August 24, 2013 at 9:43 pm #

    I think MFNW actually stands for Me Fan Now Win. So that means I should win now right?

  232. Tom August 24, 2013 at 9:43 pm #

    Believe it or not, I have never been to a concert before. I feel that this would be the ultimate experience and I would love to see my favorite band YTG! Thanks!

  233. Kegan B August 25, 2013 at 1:35 am #

    I just got in Portland wednesday morning and I’ve been working my butt off non stop since then. I believe I’m worth off the bands/tickets cause it’s my first time here on my own and I haven’t found anywhere to go to hangout Oren anyone cool yet, so what better way to meet people and finally have a little fun!
    Please and thank you!

  234. Abigail August 25, 2013 at 9:48 am #

    What is this mfnw? I have never heard of til last night and now I find this? It’s meant to be.

  235. Linda August 25, 2013 at 10:30 am #

    Please Please Please!

  236. ian August 25, 2013 at 11:09 am #

    this lineup is looking sooooooooooooooo good.

  237. Brian August 25, 2013 at 12:17 pm #

    It will be fun!

  238. Sarah August 25, 2013 at 1:06 pm #

    Help me convince my great friend to move to Portland! She’ll be in town and I’d love to wow her with this awesome fun time!

  239. Chris August 25, 2013 at 4:28 pm #

    Never had a MFNW wristband, would love to!

  240. Jerry August 25, 2013 at 5:43 pm #

    I have 18 dollars in my account. I’m destined for some luck here.

  241. Angela August 25, 2013 at 6:59 pm #

    Who wouldn’t want to attend?? I wanna start a ra ra riot….

  242. Margaret Hill August 25, 2013 at 8:00 pm #

    Pick me please so I can compare our MFNW with Seattle’s Bumbershoot which I’m attending for the first time this year, and say with certainty that our MFNW rocks it!

  243. Penny August 25, 2013 at 9:18 pm #

    Sounds like a great time. Count me in! PDX Pipeline rocks!

  244. Joe Thompson August 25, 2013 at 9:34 pm #

    I’ve never been able to attend before and have still never seen Neko Case or Bonnie Prince Billy. It would be great to tick off those boxes!

  245. Zach August 25, 2013 at 9:38 pm #

    I bought a wristband last year and didn’t get to go to a single show.

  246. Brigitte August 26, 2013 at 6:10 am #

    My head and my heart would both be SO excited!!!

  247. Leonard August 26, 2013 at 9:50 am #

    Always wanted to do this fest!

  248. Tim August 26, 2013 at 10:21 am #

    I was born and raised as a bear cub. I have taught myself to type despite my lack of opposable thumbs. I need a wristband to cover the tattoo from the freak show owner who found me. I am no one’s property. I enjoy the rock and the roll.

  249. Melanie August 26, 2013 at 10:31 am #

    My husband and I don’t get out much since we had our daughter—5 years ago!

  250. Jessica Raddatz August 26, 2013 at 11:32 am #

    Hook me up VIP Stylez and I will be the best real-time social media blogger / hypewoman extraordinaire this event has ever seen.

  251. louie August 26, 2013 at 3:33 pm #

    all i can say is – i would appreciate this prize as much as you could possibly imagine. not hyperbole, just the truth.

  252. chris August 26, 2013 at 3:35 pm #

    Oh 2013, maybe you won’t be quite as hideous as you have so far led me to believe!

  253. Jessica August 26, 2013 at 3:40 pm #

    my wrist is lonely

  254. Brian Tibbetts August 26, 2013 at 4:23 pm #

    Because I got the fattest wrists in Portland, dog. Because it’s gonna take at least two wristbands to cover my wrists. Every year I buy one and my wrist is so fat, I gotta buy another one. Clearly, I am your contest winner.

  255. Katie August 26, 2013 at 5:14 pm #

    MFNW always falls in my birthday, I always go to a few shows but have never been fortunate to get a wristband! ANIMAL collective is my all time favorite band, i’d love to see them! This year’s lineup is insane! I WANNA GO SO BAD!


  256. Michael August 27, 2013 at 4:27 am #

    Turn into something.
    Ooooooo oooooooooo oooooo

  257. Jason August 27, 2013 at 8:26 am #

    I just turned 30 and had the lamest birthday celebration ever. Help me make up for it with a wristband to mfnw!

  258. Elvialuzg Gonzalez August 27, 2013 at 10:21 am #

    It’s a music fest, not much explanation is need. Also I’m pretty broke and shouldn’t buy my own ticket.

  259. sarah August 27, 2013 at 10:59 am #

    MFNW ………PLEASE!!!!!!!!!(and thank you)

  260. Carl August 27, 2013 at 11:01 am #

    Need some music in my life! this year has been so busy I need to make up for lack of concerts.

  261. Sol August 27, 2013 at 1:28 pm #

    MFNW is a great time, but I’ve only ever done a show here or there, never the full wristband extravaganza. Would be fun to go nuts for a few days and rock the fuck out.

  262. jessica brooks August 27, 2013 at 5:54 pm #

    I would love to attend mfnw to see so many of the wonderful bands playing as well as Fred at the crystal ballroom. I will put a bird on him to win the wristbands.

  263. Ayla Rose Gilbert August 27, 2013 at 7:22 pm #

    Life has been giving me hella amounts of lemons as of late, and MFNW wristbands would give me enough sugar for at least a year’s worth of making lemonade. Please help me have something to look forward to, to be excited about. MFNW = pure joy in the midst of chaos.

    Please please

    <3 Ayla

  264. Mike Schwartz August 27, 2013 at 8:38 pm #

    These pretzels are making me thirsty!

  265. Nick D. August 27, 2013 at 11:16 pm #

    Godspeed You! Black Emperor… Must see…

  266. Pamela August 28, 2013 at 1:12 am #

    I’m a HUGE live music lover and would appreciate immensely winning the tickets !! PICK ME!! PICK ME!!! ( I’m a single mom , just went through a move, funds low. NEED THIS!!)

  267. Shannybutt August 28, 2013 at 12:07 pm #

    As a person that once played 13 instruments I have lost my way with music for many years. I haven’t felt as bonded/close as we once were.
    With my kids both choosing to learn an instrument this year, I am looking to bff’s again with music. This would be perfect.

  268. Dave May August 28, 2013 at 12:10 pm #

    If I won I would do my best to make it to as many shows as possible!

  269. Carolyn August 28, 2013 at 12:14 pm #

    I haven’t bought a wristband yet but I will be going every night (if i can get a band) so I will definitely make the most use of it!! ;o)

  270. Patrick S August 28, 2013 at 12:32 pm #

    Typhoon, Radiation City, The Thermals…Rose City love! Our guys at the big show is why I want to go! Does Fred count as a local now? :) AHHHH I can’t wait!

  271. David Carnese August 28, 2013 at 12:45 pm #

    Would love the opportunity to enjoy all of MFNW!!!

  272. Lily August 28, 2013 at 12:57 pm #

    Because I’ve never been to a music festival in PDX!

  273. Kristie Winberg August 28, 2013 at 1:04 pm #

    I have probably never wanted to win tickets to something this badly in my life. I was lucky enough to think a friend was going to be able to give me their extra ticket and now that they can’t I have had my hopes up for months and it just isn’t in the budget. Please pick me so all my incredibly plans and dreams can come to fruition. Also I will tweet everyone about how awesome y’all are.

  274. Daid Kenzler August 28, 2013 at 1:07 pm #

    MFNW Rocks!

  275. Emily D August 28, 2013 at 4:03 pm #

    Just your average poor post grad. Would completely implode if I could attend MFNW.

  276. Terri K August 28, 2013 at 4:20 pm #

    Wow; how great would it be to win tickets to this awesome NW fest!
    Fingers crossed…..

  277. Barrett August 28, 2013 at 4:22 pm #

    Why? Because I’m the biggest music nerd you’ll ever find and I can never afford to go to all these shows. Help me pdxpipeline; you’re my only hope.

  278. Erick August 28, 2013 at 4:42 pm #

    For the music!

  279. rachel August 28, 2013 at 8:49 pm #

    I would so love to kick it here!

  280. Leann August 28, 2013 at 11:45 pm #

    I this possible. A wristband for everything. What a treat this would be!

  281. Sache August 29, 2013 at 12:15 am #

    So many bands I want to see. So little time…

  282. Yelhsa August 29, 2013 at 9:06 am #


  283. michael August 29, 2013 at 9:06 am #

    Would love to win this!!

  284. Jennifer August 29, 2013 at 9:07 am #

    Though there are some good big name bands, I think I’m most excited that – even though Iconapop dropped out – K. Flay is still performing! White girl from Stanford doesn’t strike you as the rapper type, but she holds it down! Gotta get VIP so I can go support her (and all the other amazing artists)!

  285. Andy August 29, 2013 at 9:08 am #

    I already have tickets to Neko, but would love to pass those along to friends and be able to see Thao Ngyuen, Justin Townes Earle, Bonnie Prince Billy, Baseball Project, and checking out a ton more.

  286. BCS August 29, 2013 at 9:21 am #

    I want to get some free tickets! I love music.

  287. Chandler August 29, 2013 at 9:31 am #

    So many rad local acts this year!! I wanna see them all! Plus me and the lead singer for CHVRCHES are probably meant to be together. So yeah, it’s also for love.

  288. Christina August 29, 2013 at 9:40 am #

    Would be a fun way to end summer by listening and enjoying live music with my best friend in our hometown. I love how live music brings people together!

  289. Adam August 29, 2013 at 10:11 am #

    I promise that if I win these tickets, my girlfriend and I will have more fun than everyone else entering would. I don’t know how I can back up that claim, but just trust me. We’ll appreciate it a lot.

  290. Zachary August 29, 2013 at 10:14 am #

    I want to attend because I have missed it or couldn’t afford to go in years past. The lineup this year is pretty stacked!

  291. Mel. C. August 29, 2013 at 10:15 am #

    I’ve been wanting to go to Musicfest NW so, so long. Please. P-p-p-p-p-p-p-please-please-please-please-please.

  292. TIGERLILY August 29, 2013 at 10:18 am #

    Yes please! :)

  293. Michael Miller August 29, 2013 at 11:17 am #

    All music wristband!?! Wow! I’m not in school so I could properly use that pass

  294. Amber August 29, 2013 at 11:19 am #

    This sounds aaaaahhhhhhh-mazing!!! Free MFNW wristband?! Sign me up ;)

  295. jmattnapier August 29, 2013 at 11:52 am #

    All I need is a little Deerhunter, and I’ll be happy. All else is a pleasant bonus. I MUST SEE BRADFORD!

  296. Ktbski August 29, 2013 at 11:58 am #

    Such a sick line up! This is going to be great, Portland

  297. Simone Castro August 29, 2013 at 12:43 pm #

    Fred Armisen AND Bonnie prince billie hahah need to go !!!

  298. kylie August 29, 2013 at 1:23 pm #

    yes, yes, yes!!

  299. Jbird August 29, 2013 at 1:44 pm #

    Lady Portlandia hear my cry.. cuz lady luck ain’t smiling down on me

  300. Yume August 29, 2013 at 2:13 pm #

    They have such a great lineup, this year! It would be amazing to go!

  301. Nick August 29, 2013 at 2:21 pm #


  302. max August 29, 2013 at 2:23 pm #

    wow!! i know its a huge long shot to win these tickets but damn thats awesome super big thanks for the giveaway

  303. Chris August 29, 2013 at 2:26 pm #

    Would love a pass!

  304. kRISTEN August 29, 2013 at 2:31 pm #


  305. Catherine August 29, 2013 at 2:32 pm #

    I would love to have an opportunity to get out & enjoy some great entertainment.

  306. Eva August 29, 2013 at 2:37 pm #

    My husband is in love with Neko Case. I have my pride, so winning tickets is really the best way to make him happy and allow me to say we just went because it was free. So, help out my poor fella and let him see that redhaired singer lady of his dreams.

  307. Laurie August 29, 2013 at 2:38 pm #

    I’m old (55). How many more chances do I have to see Animal Collective? It’s always good to have age diversity at these festivals. Thanks for giving away tix!

  308. Steph August 29, 2013 at 2:39 pm #

    Awesome line up! Me likey!

  309. Jack August 29, 2013 at 2:43 pm #

    This is on my girlfriend’s birthday and she LOVES Young the Giant. Would love to take her to this as a surprise!!! Please help us out!!! This would be an absolute dream

  310. Denise August 29, 2013 at 2:43 pm #

    Would love to go!

  311. Cory August 29, 2013 at 2:48 pm #

    This would be a sweet win!!!!

  312. Berenice August 29, 2013 at 2:51 pm #

    So many good shows but…
    so so broke.
    Please wipe them with free tickets.

  313. Nick August 29, 2013 at 2:55 pm #

    What an awesome lineup! Too bad I’m in Seattle and have no tickets… (Wink, wink, nudge, nudge…Say no more! Say no more!) If only there was something we could do about that…

  314. Lolo August 29, 2013 at 2:55 pm #

    I haven’t been to MFNW in years!!! I know I’m missing out and would love to see it this year w/o putting a large dent in my wallet!!! Please pick me!

  315. Satorical August 29, 2013 at 2:56 pm #

    I’m throwing my hat in the ring. I hope the prize lands in it. :)

  316. SR August 29, 2013 at 3:03 pm #

    This is the best lineup MFNW has ever had!!!

  317. Allie August 29, 2013 at 3:03 pm #

    Yay! Music! :)

  318. Megan Moore August 29, 2013 at 3:04 pm #

    This would be great to see! Wonderful date nights with the husband, as they’ve been scarce since we had our first child a few months ago. Would absolutely love to see Young The Giant and many more! Please help out this new momma who needs to get out of the house to enjoy some awesome artists.

  319. MacKenzie August 29, 2013 at 3:11 pm #

    My 2 very awesome sisters will be in town and I would love to share this with them!

  320. Julia August 29, 2013 at 3:13 pm #

    I’m feeling lucky! And this would be the perfect summer send-off before I start work and my graduate school research year of hell and sleep deprivation! <3

  321. Janice August 29, 2013 at 3:13 pm #

    What is not to love about this!!! I am new to Portland and would be so delighted if I won tickets! Please draw me!

  322. Elizabeth Martin August 29, 2013 at 3:15 pm #

    PDX is nothing without MFNW. MFNW is nothing without PDX. And I am not a proper Portlander without PDXPipeline MFNW tickets!

  323. jake August 29, 2013 at 3:18 pm #

    Wow. I really want these tix! This is the kinda thing I’d go streaking on the waterfront to win!

  324. Dave G. August 29, 2013 at 3:21 pm #

    Magic is in the air ! These bands can create magic, and I’d like to be there when it happens.

  325. Patrick August 29, 2013 at 3:22 pm #

    I have never been to MFNW with a wristband, I have cherry picked the concerts I wanted to attend and just bought tickets. I would like to experience the wristband tho!

  326. MIchele August 29, 2013 at 3:30 pm #

    I need to win to make up for the disappointment of Capitol Hill Block Party. It did not end well, with my fiance & I getting attacked by wild Canadians.

  327. Hannah August 29, 2013 at 3:41 pm #

    I have a friend coming to visit from Bemidji, Minnesota. Would love to show her how people who don’t live in one of the coldest cities in America get down!

  328. sherry g. August 29, 2013 at 3:41 pm #

    This festival sounds like great fun.

  329. Chris August 29, 2013 at 3:45 pm #

    This wristband would definitely get me out of the house.

  330. Guy August 29, 2013 at 3:50 pm #

    This would be such a fantastic way to celebrate the end of summer with my daughter, great line up!

  331. Abe August 29, 2013 at 3:51 pm #

    I really want to go, but I spent my money on a TBA pass.

  332. Erin August 29, 2013 at 3:52 pm #

    After three almost full years of being broke while doing National Service and not being able to go to bigger shows, I’d sure like to enjoy my very most favoritest thing to do, which is see live music.
    And Neko Case would be there; I’d get there at 8am just to be sure to make it in the doors!

  333. w August 29, 2013 at 4:04 pm #

    choose me!

  334. Beth White August 29, 2013 at 4:25 pm #

    You said it: Portland IS one of the most exciting cities on the planet. I want to dance with all of the people who make it so!

  335. Mikey B August 29, 2013 at 4:36 pm #

    I would love to go to this show. It would be rad.

  336. Sam Gomez August 29, 2013 at 4:36 pm #

    ‘Pipelineadmin’ is a great writer.

  337. Scott August 29, 2013 at 4:38 pm #

    This sounds like an amazing time.

  338. Coral August 29, 2013 at 4:48 pm #

    This will be my first NFNW! Oh please let it be a freebie :)

  339. Theo August 29, 2013 at 4:53 pm #

    I <3 Northwest Music Fests!

  340. Johanna August 29, 2013 at 4:56 pm #

    Oh gosh, worth a shot! It would make MY LIFE1

  341. Erica August 29, 2013 at 5:07 pm #

    Please pick me!

  342. Jet August 29, 2013 at 5:24 pm #

    winner, winner, chicken dinner!

  343. Miranda T. August 29, 2013 at 5:41 pm #

    I’d like a wristband so’s I can catch *both* those Godspeed shows… and Deerhunter… and 1939 Ensemble (even if I just saw ’em)… or maybe Glass Candy… or !!!… and, um… aw, man, gimmee that wristband.

  344. chrus August 29, 2013 at 5:59 pm #

    Deerhunter and Charles Bradley are amazing. (wristband please)

  345. David J. August 29, 2013 at 6:29 pm #

    You know, as far as it goes I’m rather surprised that less than 350 people up to now are interested in free tickets to what will surely be an incredible show! Hands down, this would be the largest show I’ve attended and I hope it’ the gateway to many more amazing concerts. Thanks, PDXPipeline, for the chance to win! =D

  346. Jesse August 29, 2013 at 7:14 pm #

    Looks to be some amazing music….would be awesome to be able to attend and get good music in my system

  347. Mikaela August 29, 2013 at 7:52 pm #

    I want to go for Animal Collective, Glass Candy, Deerhunter, Heliosequence, and on and on it goes. Plus, I have nothing else to do that week, so I’m ready to shatter my eardrums and wear out my dancing shoes.

  348. Jenny August 29, 2013 at 9:09 pm #

    I am a hopeful winner! Thanks for the opportunity!

  349. Chas August 29, 2013 at 9:46 pm #

    My daughter just went to Hawaii with a friend- not me. I’m jealous. We like to do new things together, so not only would this wrap up her summer- but it would also give us one more memory together.

  350. Nicholas August 29, 2013 at 10:29 pm #

    6 days of epicness and nothing better to do, so why not win some tickets, shoot some photos and dance a marathon.


  351. Sandra Leek August 29, 2013 at 11:19 pm #

    Please my hubby & I need a date night or two… SIX IS AWESOME!! :D

  352. kim August 29, 2013 at 11:34 pm #

    i love mfnw and Willamette week!

  353. Kristen Lloyd August 30, 2013 at 12:48 am #

    I would love to go as it would be an amazing time and my first pdx festival and live music experience!

  354. Jane August 30, 2013 at 1:01 am #

    I would love to go because music is my boyfriend, music is my girlfriend. Music is my dead end, musics my imaginary friend! Music is my brother, music is my great granddaughter. Music is my sister, music is my favorite mistress.

  355. Kevin Montplaisir August 30, 2013 at 2:25 am #

    Wow what a lineup! I am new to the area and I’m really impressed with Portland, esp the music scene. I’ve played lead guitar for years in St. Louis and they don’t really have anything like this. This would be a lot of fun as I’m slowly getting to know the city.

  356. Ben August 30, 2013 at 5:00 am #

    love to go

  357. Jessica August 30, 2013 at 7:34 am #

    Being from Austin music fests have a lot to stand up to. I mean ACL and south by southwest are amazing! Would love to check out a fest from the NW that’s even called NW music fest!

  358. Ashley T August 30, 2013 at 7:35 am #

    We would love winning tickets to experience this awesome event! :)

  359. Betsy August 30, 2013 at 9:20 am #

    Hello! I am a local music teacher and would be so very inspired by winning this prize, and in turn so would my students! Thank you for offering it, whoever you choose will be a very lucky Portlander.


  360. Ash August 30, 2013 at 9:29 am #

    Another perfect reason to get the hell out of town and head over to Portland!

  361. Megg August 30, 2013 at 9:48 am #

    This would complete my life. It would be greatly appreciated!

  362. Lisa August 30, 2013 at 10:05 am #

    Oooh please pick me. I know I only have a 1 in 362 chance of winning but I’m worth it. I’m special…like a one in-a-million!

    I would just die.

    All I want is to hear the sounds of music rumbling through the fall air at the fest, it’s the best, I don’t jest…that was cheesy…I guess.

    I am too broke to pay for this!

    a good friend of mine was just violently killed this past week in Seattle… And I didn’t even know she was here at the time (we met in portland) and shed been doing through a lot of strange situations. But she absolutely loved music of all types and would’ve loved this fest. I would love to go in her honor and celebrate her life with something she loved : music + the nw.

    This would be the most amazing End Of Summer Event Ever if we won! Well, It most likely is anyway.. But, I just brought home my two boys(ages 17 & 15) from California, after living with their dad because of opur misfortune. This would be so wonderful for us to be able to go and celebrate our reunion together! Also, Neither of them have been to a concert yet in their lives…so this would be their first! What a blast. Thank you, and Good Luck to everyone! Happy Labor Day :)

    Because any music festival celebrating the amazingness that is the Northwest is JUST FINE by me! (And the lineup is amazing and this year is way too good to miss!)

    Nothing would soothe my soul better than NWMF after having been divorced by my man-wife, accidentally running over my best friend-dog after hearing the news, and then drowning my sorrows w fireball only to wreck my truck into a shelter for abandoned parrots. I’m pretty sure I’ll be out of jail in time.

    Can’t miss out on biking around Portland venue to venue, drink to drink to see some of my favorite bands and hear rad music from bands I don’t know yet.

    I am pretty sure if i don’t win these tickets, taylor swift will break into my house and pull out my still beating heart, and eat it right in front of me. then she will write a song about it and make more millions of dollars in addition to inspiring her fans to rip out the hearts of those of us the truly love true music. YOU can prevent this from happening!!!

    While scraping my knuckles off of the forest floor I am learning to walk upright, finally I am able to hold a pencil, and my spelling is gradually improving, music lifts the most humble of beasts, please help me complete my journey.

    An amazing gift for my wife for her birthday. Please let me make it so!
    Thank you!

    Overwhelm me with live music.

  381. Benji September 1, 2013 at 8:28 pm #

    Ahhhhh… the things I would do to go to NFNW! The first year I came to PDX I saw Explosions in the Sky and it changed my life. I forever fell in love with PDX that night. Please help me re-live that experience!!

    I want to tell him I love him at this concert. :) Its been 3 years and its about time he knows.

    I have been studying all month for the LSATS and am currently unemployed…..I have no money. I couldn’t go anywhere for labor day and spent all weekend watching other people’s snapchats from amazing shows and am currently depressed. I would love nothing more than to make them jealous next weekend by MY awesome snapchats of Young the Giant and Flume. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE take pity on a penniless music lover as it would make me the happiest girl in the world.

    I would love to win this prize! Summer is almost over and this is the last chance for me and my boyfriend to dance the night away to some amazing music! We both recently lost our jobs and had to sell our tickets to Bumbershoot music Fest and have cancelled future plans we had. His birthday is September 20th and I’d love to surprise him with this awesome early gift!!! I would be so very happy <3 we are music fanatics

    Hello, there. I have lived in Portland for a good 8 years and have never been able to afford to go to MFNW. I would be so excited to go this year.

  386. Mitchell July 3, 2014 at 11:30 am #

    I love the culture in Portland, and MFNW would be a perfect chance to take it in even more! Great city, amazing bands…who can complain :)

  387. Nathan Lattanzi July 29, 2014 at 1:31 pm #

    Am super excited about MFNW this year! Would love to see the great Portland talent like Shy Girls and of course the likes of Phantogram and Young the Giant! Super stoked for all performances! Would love to win these tickets!
