By now, you’ve likely already looked over the lineup for the 2013 edition of the Wakarusa festival, which will take place May 30 through June 2.
But in case you haven’t, take a minute to do so. You can find it on the festival’s website.
This isn’t my dream lineup — nothing will top My Morning Jacket, Grace Potter, Sharon Jones, Et al. in 2011 — but I must commend Wakarusa on the range found in their lineup. There’s something for the electronica crowd, with names such as Amon Tobin, The Floozies and more. There’s a few names I’m personally excited about, such as Calexico, Son Volt and Of Monsters and Men. There’s even a rap star this year, as Snoop Lion (formerly Snoop Dogg) was among those announced yesterday.
I discuss the lineup in more depth in my semi-regular music column, Listen Here!, which is available in Friday’s What’s Up! section. To read it, you need to be a subscriber to either the print edition of the newspaper or our digital products.
What do you think about the Wakarusa lineup?
