I just got an email from a friend of the site where he mentioned that he’s in charge of announcing the lineup for the 2007 Rites of Spring Music Festival down in Nashville, TN. I was psyched to say the least, especially considering once I got a look at the actual lineup they have booked…

Rites of Spring Music Festival
April 20-21, 2007
Vanderbilt University
Nashville, TN

The Roots
Keller Williams
Mat Kearney
Naughty-By Nature
Drive-By Truckers
The Whigs
Amos Lee
Bret Dennen
Bang Bang Bang
Rocco Deluca and The Burden
Charles Walker & The Dynamites

Tickets are $25 a day and $40 for an all-weekend pass.

The official site is yet to be updated but I’m rather confident that this will be the final lineup. Naughty-By Nature? Wolfmother? Keller Williams? I’d say that’s one heady mix if I’ve ever seen one, and not in the heady like “whoa, this lineup is full of heady jambands” — more like heady in the “intoxicating or stupefying” sort of way. And given that mix, I’d certainly say this easily looks worth the cost of admission.
