Young the Giant, Animal Collective and Neko Case are just a few of the acts confirmed for this year's MusicFestNW in Portland, OR, later this summer.

The extensive six-day event -- one of the largest indoor music festival in the U.S. -- gets started Sept. 3 and runs through Sept. 8, and will feature upward of 150 bands in more than a dozen music venues.

Originally formed in 1995 under the moniker North by Northwest as a West Coast version of Austin, TX's booming South by Southwest Music Conference, the festival became known as MFNW in 2001.
