Grab your favorite frat boy, because Dave Matthews Band is relevant again! Dave and the rest of the guys have kick-started a new Chicago music festival called the Dave Matthews Band Caravan.
The three-day event will take place in an undeveloped community on the south side of Chicago, right on the lake. You can only get three-day passes, which cost between $195 and $825… which will get you the VIP package. You know, for the J.Crew set.
Okay, so we’re teasing a bit, but in all honesty, the lineup is pretty amazing. We’re strongly considering tie-dying our favorite polo shirt, popping the collar, and hitting Chi-town with a few cases of Fat Tire. Here’s the full list, from the press release:
“In addition to Dave Matthews Band, the lineup for the Chicago Lakeside “Caravan” will include David Gray, Ray LaMontagne, O.A.R., Kid Cudi, The Flaming Lips performing Dark Side of the Moon, Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros, Amos Lee, Emmylou Harris, Ben Folds, G. Love & Special Sauce, Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings, Gomez, Drive-By Truckers, Michael Franti & Spearhead, Daniel Lanois’ Black Dub, The Jayhawks, Soja, Soulive, The Wailers, Blind Pilot, Dirty Dozen Brass Band, TR3, Vieux Farka Toure, Alberta Cross, Mariachi El Bronx, Bobby Long, Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk, Jeff Coffin’s Mu’tet, Gary Clark Jr., and the SUMMER CAMP SATURDAY STAGE, featuring artists who will also be appearing at this year’s Summer Camp Music Festival.”
So rad, bro.
