North By Northeast 2009 ( Lineup Announced )

Posted on May 12, 2009 |

Another day, another festival lineup announcement.

In it’s 15th year of existence, North By Northeast Music Festival will go down
June 17-21, 2009.

A 5 day affair, much like it’s big brother, South By Southwest (which it was
patterned after) 500 bands playing in 50 clubs in and around the greater T Dot area.

And like SXSW, conferences, trade shows and a film festival featuring music
documentaries, all happening during the week.

The only downside, unlike SXSW where the day starts at noon and ends around 2am,
NXNE only goes down at night so consider yourself lucky if you end up seeing two
seperate shows on any given night.

Now, if i were to go (looking into the possibility) these are the bands / artists I would
urge you to check out:

The Sonics, No Age, The Cool Kids, GZA, Burning Brides, Apostle of Hustle,
The Coast, Les Handclaps, Ume

Looking at the band roster, these are the only names I recognized / cared about.
Alot of of unknowns on that list at least to me. That’s why these festivals are
important in the music world. Get a chance to discover new artists where
otherwise you would not have said chance.

You can look up the complete band list here. More will be added in the coming weeks.

As for tickets, you can buy yourself a V.I.P. Pass which will get you pretty much
everywhere you wanna go for a cool 250$ to a 5-Day Wristband which will set you
back 50 bones.
