NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Solid Sound Festival won't roll through the city this year but it will be back in 2015.
 
On Thursday, Wilco announced that Solid Sound Festival will return to Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art in 2015 from June 26-28.
 
Last year, the festival attracted more than 7,500 people from all over the country to the city for the weekend.
 
This isn't the first year skipped — the band opted out of Solid Sound Festival in 2012 because of a heavy touring schedule for its album The Whole Love. The Chicago-based band did make a stop in the city that summer though for a benefit show for the museum.
 
The 2015 festival will be the fourth Solid Sound Festival in six years.
 
Wilco has no dates set for 2014, however guitarist and singer Jeff Tweedy will perform at Mountain Jam, a festival on the nearby Hunter Mountain in New York, from June 5 through June 8 this year.
 
Jodi Joseph, director of communications at the museum, said Mass MoCA will still be a "summer of music."
 
"We're working on a full slate of programming to take advantage of every stage and venue across our campus," Joseph said in an email Friday morning. "Summer will kick off with a not-to-be-missed 15th anniversary celebration concert and party on Memorial Day weekend, and we won't stop [until] FreshGrass in late September."
