Dandy Warhols, Soft Kill, Holy Wave Top Lose Yr Mind Fest Lineup in Portland, OR

Lose Yr Mind Fest is pleased to announce the full lineup for the 8th annual independent music festival celebrating some of the best artists in rock, psychedelic, post-punk and garage. This year’s primarily local lineup of 23 bands and two music showcases will take place September 2-3, 2022 across four venues in Portland’s Central Eastside neighborhood, with a free and open to the public wrap party on September 4. Along with a majority of female fronted bands, this year’s festival will emphasize BIPOC and LGBTQ+ representation, making it the most diverse Lose Yr Mind Fest to-date. New additions to the previously announced list of artists will include Soft Kill, The Dandy Warhols, MAITA, Slang and Psychic Bloom. Lose Yr Mind will also present two musical showcases curated by Mama Bird Recording Co. and The Thesis, marking the festival’s first-ever PDX hip hop showcase, alongside bands soon to be announced.

Fueled by the nostalgia of the 90’s, this year’s lineup dives into the past to create a new blend of fresh and eclectic post-punk sounds. Highlights at Lose Yr Mind Fest include various Portland-based hometown stars such as ‘sad rock’ Soft Kill, psychedelic-pop band The Dandy Warhols, and indie-folk MAITA, whose sophomore record I Just Want to Be Wild for You dropped in February. While the mix of artists at Lose Yr Mind Fest includes local favorites, Psychic Bloom’s soulful garage rock from Tehran and Orquestra Pacifico Tropical’s Colombian cumbia rhythms show that the festival sounds go beyond borders and genres.
