We’ve had a big day in Music News so I’m gonna go ahead and summarize it here for anyone who was away from the great and powerful interwebz all day...
Savannah Stopover (March 6-8) released their lineup and there will be some great acts playing their way toward SXSW the following week. Speaking of which, the 2014 South By (March 7-16) schedules and mobile app are live and apparently WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange will speak on Saturday, March 8th at 11 AM @ SXSW Interactive.
New Orleans Jazz Fest (April 25-May 4)released their lineup full of great surprises like Eric Clapton, Bruce Springsteen, Christina Aguilera, Phish, Santana, Arcade Fire, Robin Thicke, Vampire Weekend, The Avett Brothers, Alabama Shakes and more than 60 other acts!
Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival (June 12-15) released their third “RooClue” (see below) and a February 19th date for the official lineup announcement. The lineup will be announced in the #BLAM (Bonnaroo Lineup Announcement Megathon) format again which brought us gags and video announcements by artists and fans alike as hosted by Weird Al. Given the date of the #BLAM announcement we can expect tickets to go on sale at noon sharp on February 22nd.
Firefly Festival (June 19-22) released a pretty great lineup with headliners OutKast, Jack Johnson and the Foo Fighters. Tickets go on sale January 20th at noon EST.
We learned that the Allman Brothers Band will Join Widespread Panic at Lockn’ Festival (Sept 4-7).
We also found out that the seventh annual Record Store Day will be Saturday, April 19th this year and that Fun Fun Fun Fest will take place November 7-9th at Auditorium Shores in Austin. Early Bird Tickets go on sale February 12th @ 9 AM CST.
EDIT: What The Festival returns to Wolf Run Ranch June 19-22nd and Electric Daisy Mexico (March 15-16) throws down with a phase one lineup headed by Avicii.
