UPDATE: Singer/songwriter Eric Hutchinson, who grew up in Takoma Park and released his latest album ("Pure Fiction") in April, has been named the final addition to the Silopanna Music Festival lineup.
Get ready, Anne Arundel County Fairgrounds, because Wayne Coyne is coming this summer.
The Flaming Lips, led by Coyne, Dashboard Confessional and Matt & Kim are a few of the 19 acts scheduled to perform at the fairgrounds for Aug. 16's Silopanna Music Festival.
Other artists set to take the stage include Sleeper Agent, Hellogoodbye, Chappo, Twin Forks, Damn Right!, Jimmie's Chicken Shack, Pasadena, Sweet Leda, Higher Hands, Sun Club (read my review of their latest EP here), Little Bird, The Baby Grand and Skribe. One other act will be named on June 2.
Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. today. General admission prices range from $49.50-$69.50, depending on when you purchase. VIP tickets — which include "preferred parking," air-conditioned bathrooms, reservered viewing areas at the main stage and more — will cost between $150-$175. For more information on ticket pricing, check out silopannafestival.com. Tickets are also on sale at the Rams Head on Stage box office in Annapolis and the downtown Rams Head Live box office in Power Plant Live.
While there was no Silopanna Music Festival in 2013, the 2012 lineup featured Cake, Citizen Cope and others.
