The 2007 Green Apple Music Festival has expanded to two more cities, Chicago and , on top of their inaugural year in . The festival is geared towards raising awareness for Day and kicks off on April 20th.

After digging through some recent tour , we’ve now got early confirmations of at least three five bands slated to play the Chicago portion of the festival:

Umphrey’s McGee: 4/21 in Chicago (venue TBA) – “performing a very special show in Chicago; details to come soon”

Brothers Past 4/20 and 4/21 @ the Beat Kitchen in Chicago: “returning for a two-night stand at the Beat Kitchen in Chicago, as part of the Green Festival”

Assembly of Dust4/20 in Chicago (venue TBA) for the “green apple music festival”)

Mofro and New Monsoon4/20 @ the House of Blues in Chicago

With the expansion to a total of three cities, this “festival” seems to be picking up a decent amount of steam. Anybody hearing rumors about shows in SF or NYC?
