Did someone say “festival season”?
Foo Fighters, Jack Johnson and a revitalized OutKast will headline the four-day fest scheduled for June 19-22. While OutKast announced earlier this week that they’d be playing 40 festivals this year, this is the first U.S. festival performance by headliner standbys Foo Fighters in a couple years, following a much-needed break.
Two of 2013’s most talked-about rappers — Childish Gambino and his buddy Chance the Rapper — both land on this year’s bill, while a number of female-fronted acts — Sky Ferreira, Tegan and Sara, Sleigh Bells, Phantogram and tUnE-yArDs — will take the stage as well.
Other acts confirmed include: Band of Horses, Young the Giant, Girl Talk, Cage the Elephant, Portugal. the Man, Grouplove, Local Natives, Ziggy Marley, Jake Bugg, THIRD EYE BLIND (!), Amos Lee, Washed Out, Twenty One Pilots, Haerts, Iron & Wine, Airborne Toxic Event, Martin Garrix, New Politics, Kodaline and more.
General admission and VIP tickets go on sale next Monday (Jan. 20), and start at $249 for early bird purchasers to $699 for the full VIP treatment.
