DeLuna Fest 2012 Lineup
The DeLuna 2012 lineup has been announced — and it’s another strong festival lineup, this time coming from the southeast part of the country. The DeLuna Festival in Florida has tapped Pearl Jam and Foo Fghters to headline the three-day event, with Florence + the Machine and a host of others on the bill as well.
The lineup for this year’s installment is packed with music’s biggest heavy hitters. Joining PJ, the Foos and Ms. Welch are Seattle indie faves Band of Horses, the reunited Ben Folds Five, Guided By Voices, the Joy Formidable, the Gaslight Anthem, the Wallflowers, City And Colour, Mike Doughty and more.
There are a few surprises scheduled as well, including bad girl pioneer Joan Jett and her band the Blackhearts, country veteran Dwight Yoakam and DJ Jazzy Jeff. More acts will be announced as the festival nears, including a third headliner.
The 2012 DeLuna Festival is set to take place Sept. 21-23 in Pensacola, Fla. A limited number of advance weekend tickets for the music and beach bash start at $159.95 and are available at DeLunaFest.com. Once those tickets are sold out, the price jumps to $199.95.
This will mark the only confirmed U.S. tour date for Pearl Jam so far this year. Frontman Eddie Vedder was gearing up to embark on a 15-date solo tour in May, but was forced to postpone due to nerve damage in his right arm.
