You know you're in the thick of summer when every other blog post is about an upcoming music festival announcing its schedule.

Monday was PDX Pop Now. Today, it's MusicfestNW. 

Don't worry: Unlike in the past, when the festival took place at multiple venues scattered throughout town, you won't have to make any agonizing choices this year, as the 18 bands are spread across two alternating stages at Waterfront Park. All you really have to plan for it precisely when you want to hit up the Kind Headphone Disco raging all day. You can find that below. 

As you'll notice, the festival ends at 10 pm each of its two nights. But that doesn't mean you've got to call it a night early: MFNW has also announced its full slate of pre- and after-parties, which includes intimate shows by Flatbush Zombies, Superchunk, Com Truise, Tacocat and solo sets from Run the Jewels' Killer Mike and El-P. Future Islands, one of the festival's highlight acts, will also make a return engagement at Doug Fir as part of Pitchfork's Nightcap Series. You can find the full list of shows, with times, venues and entry info, below as well.

MFNW is Aug. 16 and 17 at Tom McCall Waterfront Park. Go here for tickets.
