311, James Taylor, G. Love & Special Sauce Among Artists Announced for SunFest 2009
|311: still around, and playing SunFest!|
, in West Palm Beach, has always impressed me, 1) for the expensive, marquee names it has attracted, but also 2) for the really strange ways it has often combined them. The festival, in its latter-day incarnation, now spans several days, with packed bills each night, including one "new music night" that features a host of up-and-coming local and national touring acts.
This year's lineup, similarly, features names that will appeal to a very broad spectrum of concertgoers, and again, often on the same day. Arguably, it's a strength of the thing -- exposing attendees to unlikely new favorites, etc. etc. Still, it leads to some funny combos. Here's the lineup so far after the jump. The festival takes place this year from April 29 through May 3.
