Wilco will not organize a Solid Sound Festival this year but promised to return in 2013.
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The Solid Sound Festival will not return this summer but will be back in 2013.

The last two years the concert, organized by the band Wilco, attracted thousands of people to the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Arts. This year will be a hiatus for the festival but it is scheduled to return in June of 2013.

"The festival is dearly loved by all of us - from the band to the staff who organize and execute it  - so the decision to take 2012 off was not an easy one," said festival co-organizer and Wilco manager Tony Margherita in a press release. "However, with the release of Wilco's latest album, The Whole Love, on their own newly launched label, followed by a lot of touring both home and away, well, we've had a pretty crazy year. All that factored in to deciding that the best thing for us and for the festival would be to give ourselves enough time and energy to really focus on making Solid Sound 2013 the best one yet."

The band plans on performing a special benefit concert this summer at MoCA but the date of that show has not been set.

"We also understand the financial impact that taking the year off will have on MASS MoCA, our incredible host and not-for-profit partner in the festival," Margherita said. "It is our hope and intention that this summer's benefit concert will lessen that impact and present Wilco with another opportunity to bring our fans to a place that is very dear to us."

The 2013 festival is scheduled for June 21 through June 23. A lineup and ticket information is expected to be announced in the next few months.
