Conor Oberst will headline Thursday, June 1st of this year’s Nelsonville Music Festival. Oberst joined his first band at the age of 13 and has been releasing music since 1993. Over the next two plus decades, he’s released cassette-only recordings, split 7-inches, and a dozen albums of uncommon insight, detail, and political awareness with his band Bright Eyes, under his own name, as a member of Desaparecidos, as leader of the The Mystic Valley Band, and with the Monsters of Folk supergroup. His latest release Ruminations came in October 2016, and a companion piece titled Salutations will be out March 17, will feature all 10 songs from last fall’s album – reworked with full-band arrangements – and seven additional tracks.Cloud Nothings was founded in a Cleveland basement as the one-man recording project of Dylan Baldi. Since the release of a collection of early recordings in 2010, Cloud Nothings has become a full rock and roll band, following that up with a trio of acclaimed albums including the Steve Albini produced Attack On Memory in 2012. They have returned in 2017 with the just released Life Without Sound, and we will welcome them to this year’s NMF. Rounding out this second round of Nelsonville Music Festival lineup announcements are Frazey Ford, Michael Hurley, Tyler Childers, Aldous Harding, Mirah, Aaron Lee Tasjan, Valley Queen, The Easy Leaves, Sarah Shook & The Disarmers, Wesley Bright & The Honeytones, Adam Remnant, Swarming Branch, Counterfeit Madison, Doc Robinson, Caitlin Kraus, and Blue Moth. Many more acts still to be announced!
