The intitial line-up for the 2007 Green Apple Music Festival — which takes place this April 20th-22nd in New York, Chicago, and — has been announced…well, sort of.. The full -line-up is now available at the main Green Apple site, but it looks as though they’re still working on getting all the city-by-city details online. Hopefully the sites for each city — Chicago, New York, and San Francisco — will be updated soon, but for now, don’t get confused with the line-up from last year’s festivities in NYC.

However, yesterday Relix and gave a run-down of a good portion of the festivities in each city (but also without a full listing). So, with those sources and few others, we dug up as much information on all these shows from the info that’s currently available to make the list below:

We still don’t have all the deets on when/where every one of these bands will be playing exactly, but we’ll contine to piece together the rest of the info as it is released. It’ll be interesting to see how they open this up fully to three cities instead of just one. It’s a wierd take on a “festival,” since it’s a random series of shows and events in three separate spots. But with this huge line-up and three big cities, I imagine 2007 will generate some solid press in each spot, and of course, some amazing performances.
