Baltimore's upcoming Virgin Mobile Festival (8/9-8/10) just got a lot more awesome. The inital announcement included Nine Inch Nails, Foo Fighters, Jack Johnson, Stone Temple Pilots and Kanye West. Yawn. What else you got? How about:
Bob Dylan, Wilco, Iggy & the Stooges, Lil Wayne, Cat Power, Bloc Party, Andrew Bird, Chuck Berry and the Silver Beats, Moby, the reunited Shudder to Think, the Black Keys, the Go! Team, Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings, the Swell Season, Paramore, Underworld, Lupe Fiasco, She & Him, Erol Alkan, Chromeo, Gogol Bordello, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Soulwax, Richie Hawtin, Rodrigo y Gabriela, Ferry Corsten and more to come. Again, you get Dylan, Kanye, Chuck muthafuckin' Berry , Iggy, Go! Team AND Lil Wayne all on one (or probably more like 4) stage. Wow. Good job, Virgin!
