FROM THE TECH NEST: Portland’s MusicFestNW Launches Portland Digital eXperience

April 16. 2012 | By Collin Welbon

MusicFestNW (MFNW), celebrating its twelfth year in downtown Portland, is expanding its format to include an event focused on digital creativity, technology, and start-ups. The newly added event, Portland Digital eXperience (PDX), will hold its panel-driven and tech-oriented programming during the day throughout the week of the festival, leading into each evening’s MFNW musical acts and parties. MusicFestNW and the Portland Digital eXperience is being held from September 5th to 9th.

“We’re thrilled at the prospect of expanding MFNW to a new – but entirely complementary – audience,” said the co-founder of MusicFestNW, Willamette Week’s Mark Zusman about adding PDX to the current MFNW format. “This is a natural progression for this event. And we’re looking forward to collaborating with the Portland tech community to make it happen.”
