The National announced on Wednesday that they will be performing their seminal album Boxer in its entirety for their final performance of Homecoming. The performance will take place Sunday, April 29th, and will serve as the festival’s finale. The National will also headline Saturday night, so there will be ample opportunity to hear their other work, including songs from last year’s grammy-winning Sleep Well Best.
In addition to the Boxer announcement, daily lineups and additional support were also announced on Wednesday. Mouse on Mars, Sam Amidon, Spank Rock, Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith, and Lisa Hannigan were added to a line up which already includes some of the biggest names in modern Indie. The first night of the festival, Saturday, April 28th, will feature performances from Father John Misty, The Breeders, Lord Huron, and Alvvays, while Feist, Future Islands, Moses Sumney and Big Thief will take the stage leading up to the National’s Boxer performance on Sunday. Homecoming will take place on two stages in Smale Riverfront Park. Two-day passes are currently running $149.50, while single-day tickets cost $79.50.
