XX Merge Festival: July 22-26, 2009 in NC


Merge Records started 20 years ago in Chapel Hill, NC with some 4-track recordings, a couple cassette tapes, and some hand-stuffed 7″ vinyl. Many singles, albums, and late nights later we’re happy to be here and happy that you’re still here for us! All year we’ll be celebrating the past, present, and future of Merge but this summer we’re throwing a party to mark this anniversary: XX Merge, five days of music by Merge artists past and present in the summer heat of sunny North Carolina. July 22-26, 2009.

Put it on your calendar now! Lineup and ticket information to be announced soon!

Subscriptions to SCORE! Merge Records: The First 20 Years have been extended to January 11th. This is your last chance to receive a year of Merge goodies delivered to your door and computer all year long!

I wonder who they’ll get to reunite. I think it goes without saying that Portastatic and Superchunk will be on the bill. Arcade Fire are on Merge. So were Neutral Milk Hotel.
