Will the Real Green Apple Music Festival Please Stand Up?

Please stand up, please stand up…

As a blogger, I’m entirely confuzzled on what the hell I should be posting regarding the Green Apple Music Festival.

On the one hand, it has not been announced yet.

On the other hand, Slack LaLane has the preliminary flier that clearly lists the lineup as follows: Antibalas Afrobeat Orchestra, Assembly of Dust, Bela Fleck, Bill Frisell, Blues Traveler, Dan Bern, Deep Banana Blackout, Dweezil Zappa, Everyone Orchestra, Fab Faux, Kaki King, Little Feat, Max Creek, McCoy Tyner, NY Philharmonic, Particle, Perpetual Groove, Peter Frampton, Richie Havens, Savion Glover, Secret Machines, Slick Rick, Soulive, Steve Kimock, Tea Leaf Green, The Slip, Toots and the Maytals, Toubab Krewe, Umphrey’s McGee and Zen Tricksters.

Plus, some of the bands’ publicity companies are already sending this info out as part of their normal “this band has these tour dates, blah blah blah…” releases that are blindly hitting the newswires without full mention that these are confirmations for a festival that has been announced and yet it hasn’t.

If you consider the mecca of all show confirmations to be the JamBase show database (which, at times, I do indeed consider it the mecca), check this search of New York City during the festival dates, April 20-23, 2006.

So, whether or not it’s been officially confirmed, you can definitely start making your plans from the JamBase calendar. I promise I’ll update this with the final Green Apple Music Festival lineup once we actually have it. Hopefully, this is only a minor hiccup that shouldn’t follow along with the actual festival logistics.
