MusicfestNW has announced the lineup for the 2012 incarnation of the annual Portland music festival, which will take place September 5-9 at 16 different venues around the city. This year there'll be three outdoor shows at Pioneer Courthouse Square, featuring headliners Silversun Pickups (Sun Sept 9), Girl Talk (Sat Sept 8), and Beirut (Fri Sept 7). Also, Passion Pit headlines two nights at the Crystal, and the reunited Hot Snakes will play the Roseland; additionally, Old 97's set will include their 1997 album Too Far to Care performed in full, and Sloan will play their 1994 album Twice Removed.

Also performing: Menomena (who'll have a new record by then), the Helio Sequence (ditto?), Starfucker (ditto?), Dinosaur Jr (on a bill that also includes sets by Sebedoh and J. Mascis), Mr. Jonathan Toubin (making a much awaited Portland appearance following his near-fatal accident at the Doug Fir, in which a taxi crashed into his hotel room as he slept), Future Islands (yay!), the Tallest Man on Earth (double yay!) a reunited Hazel, Jason Isbell, Julia Holter, Mirrorring, Omar Souleyman, and a lot more. Tickets run $75-125, depending on how many of the Pioneer Courthouse Square shows you want to go to. They go on sale Friday.

Tonight, a celebration party of today's announcement takes place at Holocene (1001 SE Morrison) with sets by Gardens & Villa, Swahili, and Grandparents, all of whom will be playing the fest in September.
