SunFest 2011 Lineup: Cee Lo Green, MGMT, Avett Brothers, and More

SunFest, the annual live music spectacle on the West Palm Beach waterfront, has announced its full lineup, and there's some definite magnetism on this bill.

Although you wouldn't know it from the size of the text on the official lineup page, it's monster news that the illustrious Cee Lo Green is on this bill. Couple him with MGMT and the Avett Brothers and you have a group of musicians that have connections to the Grammys without using up all of their cool points.

As for the rest of the acts set to perform April 27 to May 1 out in the balmy sun, it's a mixed bag.

In the pop vein, we've got the acoustic troubadour Jason Mraz, Mike "Bow Chicka Wow Wow" Posner, and the meteoric Neon Trees.

Legacy acts include Jeff Beck; Earth, Wind & Fire; Styx; and Gregg Allman.

And the rest: Sublime With Rome, O.A.R., Cherry Poppin' Daddies, Taking Back Sunday, Sick Puppies, Never Shout Never, Prince Royce, Toad the Wet Sprocket, the Supervillains, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Brooke Fraser, Anberlin, and Ziggy Marley.

SunFest. Wednesday, April 27, to Sunday, May 1, at West Palm Beach Waterfront. Single-day tickets start at $30; a five-day pass is $60 until April 23. Click here.
