First City Festival: Passion Pit, Modest Mouse, MGMT, Beach House and more

The crew at Goldenvoice is busy today with the first announcement of a new festival set for Monterey, CA over the August 24-25 weekend. First City Festival is a new addition to the stacked summer around here in the Bay Area, with Modest Mouse, Passion Pit, MGMT, Neko Case, Beach House, Toro Y Moi, Devendra Banhart, Washed Out and more all set to invade the Monterey County fairgrounds for a who’s-who weeekend of indie rock just two weeks after Outside Lands hits the San Francisco.
