Earlier today, I posted a quick round-up of NYC area venue news, including rumors of the return of CBGBs. But it appears that was only half the story. According to Bowery Boogie, there are solid rumors of a CBGBs summer festival that’s in the works for July 3-7, 2012 (complete w/ what appears to be a festival poster promo image…included above).

Whether this is just the rumor mill churning out another doozy or the real deal, it’s a pretty interesting concept, and something we’ll be keeping our eyes/ears on this spring.
