VFest: Pimlico, the Police & the Pumpkins

From Pollstar:

"Virgin Group founder Sir Richard Branson has announced the U.S. Virgin Festival By Virgin Mobile will be held August 4-5, 2007 at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, Md., adding a second day of music in its second year. The Police and Beastie Boys play August 4, and The Smashing Pumpkins headline the second day.

"On-sale dates for tickets, the rest of the line-up and additional info will be announced in the coming weeks.

"The first U.S. Virgin Festival By Virgin Mobile was held September 23, 2006, and featured 20 bands performing for more than 45,000 people across two stages and a giant dance tent.

"This year, the site will again provide a variety of entertainment and activity, concessions, a diverse array of vendors and non-profit organizations, art installations, performance art and more."
Let's just hope they don't run out of bottled water at 8:00 PM. Again.

I'd love to see the Police and Smashing Pumpkins. Looks like a solid lineup; might have to make the (15-minute) trip to Pimlico this year.
