Portland's biggest summer music festival is less than month away, and the first truly summer-like weekend is basically here. Seems like a perfect time to introduce our MusicfestNW presents Project Pabst playlist.
It's the easiest way to familiarize yourself with the artists playing the festival—or as we like to call it, MFNWpPP. Oh sure, "It Was a Good Day" or "Hungry Like the Wolf" are probably part of your DNA at this point, but what do you know about Lizzo's self-esteem anthem "Good As Hell"? Hop Along's yearning, raw-throated "The Knock"? A$AP Ferg's literal club-banger "Let It Bang"? MFNWpPP might be the most top-heavy festival either MusicfestNW or Project Pabst has ever put on, but there's still plenty to discover.
Oh, and don't worry, Weenheads: There's something on there for you too.
MFNWpPP is Aug. 27-28. Get tickets here.
