mainnew_01.jpgFor those of you that might not going to the Pitchfork Music Festival, there’s another music festival that weekend within two hours of Chicago that might peak your interest a little better…

The first annual Hedgpeth Festival will be held July 28-29, 2006 in Twin Lakes, WI — somehwere near the Illinois/Wisconsin border and Lake Geneva — and the lineup is stellar for a first-year fest. It’s got the only festival performance by Primus this year, if I’m correct. That’s worth the price of admission alone.
