Wilco, Feist, Iron & Wine, More to Perform at 2010 Olympics


As if the gravity defying feats of the Flying Tomato weren’t enough to make this year’s Winter Olympics in Vancouver memorable, the Canadian city will also be home to a slew of quality musical performances. Although several headliners are Canadians themselves (including Feist and Martha Wainwright), several American artists like Iron & Wine and Wilco also got an invite.

The concert series, which runs Jan. 22-March 21, is part of Vancouver’s Cultural Olympiad — a showcase of music, theater, dance and other forms of art. For a full listing of performers at the Cultural Olympiad, visit the official Vancouver 2010 site.
