Best Fest For People With B.A.’s In English
Who's performing: The Decemberists, Belle and Sebastian, Sylvan Esso, Charles Bradley
Where & When: Missoula, MT; August 12-13
Why you should go: Where to start? Because The Decemberists curate this fest and they headline both days; because it’s at Big Sky Brewing Company; because The Decemberists traditionally put on epically entertaining shows; because this is Decemberist frontman Colin Meloy’s homeland, so there’s a good chance he’ll bring his A-game. But mostly because it’s in Montana, and the trip there and back should be glorious.
