virginfestival.jpgThe U.S. version of the Virgin Festival has fleshed out its 2007 lineup after announcing its three major headliners a few weeks back (the Police, the , and the ). The festival — which takes place August 4-5 at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, MD — has just announced some big additions to its lineup, including some great bands and DJs that really run the gamut of musical genres.

The updated lineup now includes the following artists:







Cheap Trick


Danny Tenaglia



Ficton Plane





James Zabiela



Migs (Petalpusher)




Sander Van Doorn




The (DJ set)



Velvet Revolver
Wu Tang Clan

Is it me or is this lineup really solid? I think we’ve got an impressive Lollapalloza competitor on our hands, don’t you? They’ve really ed everything from indie rock to hip-hop to mainstream rock to all types of electronic music. Very tempting.
