Alternative rock group Chevelle, Nashville country duo Florida-Georgia Line and Philadelphia-based cover band Kristen and the Noise will perform on the Jagermeister Stage at this year's Preakness InfieldFest on May 18, the Maryland Jockey Club announced today.
The addition of two rock bands and a country act makes sense after the Club announced last month Top 40 staple Pitbull and rising hip-hop star(s) Macklemore & Ryan Lewis would headline InfieldFest.
Kristen and the Noise, who will kick-off the Jagermeister Stage, are scheduled to play Claddagh Pub's Meet in the Street in Canton on Saturday.
In other Preakness-related news, tickets for the Black-Eyed Susan concert, headlined by the Goo Goo Dolls, go on sale at 10 a.m. this morning. The concert will be held the day before the Preakness Stakes on May 17. The $25 tickets can be purchased by calling the Pimlico sales office (410-542-9400 or 877-206-8042) or at ticketfly.com. Two more acts are still to be announced.
