The 18th annual V Festival, sponsored by Virgin Media, recently announced new acts they've added to their lineup. This year will take place August 17 & 18 at Hylands Park, Chelmsford and Weston Park, Staffordshire.
Headliners are Beyonce and Kings of Leon (who I had no idea was bigger than Stereophonics, The Script, Emeli Sandé, Calvin Harris, or Beady Eye?)
Other acts listed:
CMT® Partners with Sturgis Buffalo Chip® will be bringing the annual motorcycle music festival to television with CMT BIKE WEEK, which premieres the week of August 18. Filmed at the Sturgis Buffalo Chip’s two weeklong event in Sturgis, South Dakota, CMT BIKE WEEK will give its viewers a look into the music, culture and camaraderie that make up the popular festival.
The 9-day music event (July 29 through August 11) will feature Queensrÿche, The Cult, Buckcherry, Pop Evil, ZZ Top, Halestorm, Kid Rock, Doobie Brothers, Toby Keith, Tesla, Rob Zombie, Mastodon, Machine Head, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Brantley Gilbert, Sublime with Rome, Fuel, Lit, and Alien Ant Farm with more to be announced soon. Personally, I wouldn't mind seeing Quiet Riot - they are listed as appearing on August 4th at 10:30pm.
Lots of great bands on this lineup for San Francisco's Treasure Island Music Festival, taking place October 19-20, 2013. The music festival is produced by Noise Pop and Another Planet Entertainment and is in their sixth year.
I don't know if this is the case anymore, but typically the festival is divided into two days of music. The first usually have more electronic/hip-hop artists, while the second is geared towards rock and indie fans. I looked over this year's lineup, and they are all good in my book.
You can grab the 2-day early bird tickets for $130, which went on sale today (UPDATE: and like that, it's sold out). Only regular prices are now available.
