Even though none of this looks fully official from the source yet, brooklynvegan has the scoop on the performers and schedule on the inaugural High Line Music Festival set in New York City in early May. Pitchfork has it, too.

Previously: “David Bowie will curate the inaugural High Line Festival, to be held in May 2007 in neighborhoods underneath the High Line, a public park being created atop a long-abandoned elevated railway line on the west side of Manhattan.”
