Wilco's Jeff Tweedy Is Coming to OctFest

August 22, 2018

OctFest is coming, and you’re ready.

You’ve marked it on your calendar. You’ve ticked off all of the 90-plus global breweries you plan to visit and the 20 artists you plan to see. You’ve dreamed of how many tacos, burgers and slices you’re going to pile on your plate at the Bon Appétit-curated Food Village. (And you’ve bought your tickets already, haven’t you?)

But just when you thought you had it all figured out, we’ve got another surprise for you: Jeff Tweedy of Wilco is joining the OctFest bill, performing on Saturday, September 8.

That’s right. Tweedy joins Saturday’s already amazing bill with Vince Staples, NAO, Preoccupations, Vagabon, Standing on the Corner and more. Sunday’s equally stellar bill features The Flaming Lips, Nile Rodgers & CHIC, Yo La Tengo, Girlpool and more. BadBadNotGood, however, will not be performing due to unforeseen circumstances.

Remember, tickets cost $75 for a single day and $140 for a weekend pass, which include 15 beer samples per day. Get ‘em now at
