Pabst Blue Ribbon, the unofficial beer of hipsters everywhere, will host its first music festival this September in the unofficial hipster capital of the world.

Project Pabst will take place Sept. 26-28 at various venues throughout Portland, Ore., according to Oregon Live. The main events on Saturday and Sunday will be held on two stages over 10 acres at Zidell Yards. Tears for Fears will headline Sept. 27, and hometown heroes Modest Mouse will headline Sept. 28. Fans must be 21 or older to attend.

Other artists slated to perform include: Guided by Voices, Phosphorescent, Violent Femmes, Shabazz Palaces, Constantines, Rocket From the Crypt, Speedy Ortiz, Menomena, the Thermals, Surfer Blood, Lord Huron, Red Fang, High on Fire and more.

Pabst CMO Dan McHugh said in a statement, “We wanted to create a festival as uniquely original as the city itself. Project Pabst is a love letter to Portland. The company wanted to do something for the city that has embraced it and has never waivered in its support.”

Single-day passes and weekend passes are available now. A dollar from every ticket will go to help the Jeremy Wilson Foundation, dedicated to providing financial assistance in times of medical crisis and to improving the overall well-being of individual musicians and their families.
