The lineup will include Panda Bear, Broken Social Scene, Public Enemy, The Love Language, No Age, Akron/Family, and Atlas Sound, to name but a few. The lineup brings together the Triangle's rich music scene. "Several music festivals in the Triangle make it clear how strong the talent in North Carolina is, and they do it better and better each year," says Grayson Currin, Music Editor of the Independent Weekly, in a press release. "We don't want to replace that. Rather, we want to expand on it by showing that this area has the caliber of bands and listeners that can support a big music festival."
