SunFest Lineup Announced for 2012: Includes Pitbull, Girl Talk, Snoop Dogg, and The Fray

The moment South Florida has been waiting for has arrived. SunFest announced its 2012 lineup, and it's not too shabby. 


Though Counting Crows is the first name listed, we're pretty sure they're not the headliner. Though Adam Duritz was a big cutie in the '90s, these guys should probably be somewhere lower down by Third Eye Blind. 

Names that do stand out to the local eye are South Florida's own suit-wearing Pitbull and young dude singer Cris Cab. Tallahassee Jesus rockers Creed will be playing with arms wide open. Hopefully, Snoop Dogg arrives stoned and melodic and Wiz Khalifa will get you all black and yellow, you know, what ever that means. 

Girl Talk and Passion Pit will make the kiddies dance. For those with a great big soft side, there's the Fray's piano rock. Reggae and ska fans will enjoy Matisyahu and the Bostones. Golden oldies or middle-agers, rather, will be excited about badass babe Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, former Bad Company's Paul Rodgers and Foreigner, who everyone sings along with in the car. Click over for the full lineup.
