Rest Of Virgin Announced

The entire Virgin Festival lineup was revealed this morning. Those who had hoped for some quality acts to balance out the mediocrity of the headliners, kinda sorta maybe got what they wanted.

There were some better acts added, with the stronger day clearly being Sunday the 10th. Highlighted additions by day include:

Bloc Party, Cat Power, Chuck Berry, Lupe Fiasco, and Wilco

Andrew Bird, The Black Keys, Bob Dylan, Lil Wayne, She and Him, and Chromeo (Nine Inch Nails and Kanye West headlining)

A nice little East Coast roadtrip weekend could be accomplished by catching Radiohead (2 nights), Grizzly Bear, Animal Collective, Kings of Leon, The Roots, Girl Talk, and The Black Angels at All Points West up in NYC for Friday and Saturday. Then heading back down to Baltimore on Sunday for the second day of Virgin. In fact, you would be oppositely following Jack Johnson's itinerary, completely avoiding him at both festivals. Bonus.
