SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

On Tuesday, Mission Creek Festival announced its second wave of 2014’s music lineup.

Performers will include indie folk-rock band the Head and the Heart, psychedelic-rock band Of Montréal, and experimental violinist Kishi Bashi.

The Head and the Heart has recently released Let’s Be Still, a twist on Americana roots with strong vocal harmonies. Bashi will embark on her indie orchestral solo project after she toured with Of Montréal, Regina Spektor, and Sondre Lerche for many years. And Of Montréal will return to Iowa City after almost eight years to bring its psychedelic pop music to the stage.

The announcement highlights the festival’s commitment to artistic diversity. The festival will also include such artists as S. Carey of Bon Iver, Mark McGuire, Basia Bulat, Jenny Hval, Dave Moore, Fake Your Own Death, and Iowa-based artists Trouble Lights, Curt Oren, and Dylan Sires and Neighbors.

The new acts will join the existing lineup featuring Philip Glass, Jason Isbell, Rachel Kushner, William Elliott Whitmore, and Nat Baldwin.

The festival’s literary events, tech conference, food programming, and artists-in-residence series will be announced in the next couple of weeks.

Mission Creek Festival will run April 1-6 this year, and individual event tickets will go on sale Jan. 31.

The weeklong experience will feature national, international, and regional musicians, writers, and artists who will perform and showcase their work in Iowa City venues including the Englert Theater, the Mill, Blue Moose, Public Space One, and Prairie Lights.
