Billy Bragg, Mountain Goats, Dr. Dog, Senses Fail lead 2010 Harvest of Hope Festival lineup
We're getting close to the start of festival season in Florida, and one of the biggest festivals, the outsider punk and aggro-folk-oriented Harvest of Hope Festival in St. Augustine, unveiled its initial lineup today.
Headliners include Billy Bragg, the Mountain Goats (above), Rogue Wave, Senses Fail, Anti-Flag, Dr. Dog, Kimya Dawson, Cymbals Eat Guitars, Freelance Whales, Sea Wolf, Portugal. the Man, Fruit Bats, Delta Spirit, Man Man, Dead Prez and Dr. Octagon (a.k.a. Kool Keith).
Of course, there are plenty of Florida bands in the mix, including a few from Tampa (The Beauvilles, New Bruises, Too Many Daves, The Tim Version) and some from elsewhere in Florida (Mumpsy, Look Mexico).
There's little something for everyone -- and that's only a fraction of the 120 or so bands that were announced today. (Click here for the full list.) Expect more announcements to come.
The festival is March 12-14 at the St. Johns County Fairgrounds in St. Augustine. Three-day tickets are $39.50. Click here for details.
