Another pair of summer festivals unveiled their lineups yesterday, and strangely neither included Jack Johnson. At Seattle’s three-day Bumbershoot Music & Arts Festival, to be held August 30-September 1, the headliners are Beck, the reunited Stone Temple Pilots, Lucinda Williams and Neko Case. Also on the bill are Jakob Dylan, Lee “Scratch” Perry, the Walkmen, Ingrid Michaelson and more. Tickets are on sale now for that event.
A few hundred miles northeast in Calgary, the city’s version of the Virgin Festival will feature headliners STP and the Tragically Hip, with the Flaming Lips, the New Pornographers and a parade of Canadian bands round out the bill. Tickets for that fest, which will be held June 21 and 22, go on sale Saturday. It was previously announced that the Baltimore Virgin would get the Foo Fighters, Kanye West, Nine Inch Nails and STP, while Toronto’s headliners were Oasis and Spiritualized. The lineup for Vancouver’s Virgin Festival still has yet to be announced.
