Nostalgia: Remaining Virgin Mobile Fest 2008 Lineup Announced

April 28, 2008

The Aug. 9 and 10 Virgin Mobile Festival is looking even more like a trip in the way-back machine with the addition of Bob Dylan, the Offspring, Wilco, Iggy and the Stooges, and Chuck Berry as headliners. Cat Power, offsetting at least a little of that dudeness, the Swell Season, and Paramore also share top billing.

Based on a quick skim, the rest of the lineup isn’t half bad; can’t argue with Underworld and Richie Hawtin manning the dance tent or She and Him, um, looking really hot.

From a press release sent out this morning:

Main Stage acts on Saturday, Aug. 9 are, in alphabetical order, Bloc Party, Cat Power, Chuck Berry and The Silver Beats, Citizen Cope, Duffy, Foo Fighters, Gogol Bordello, Jack Johnson, KT Tunstall, Lupe Fiasco, The Offspring, Paramore, Rodrigo y Gabriela, Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings, The Swell Season and Wilco.

On Sunday, Aug. 10, the Main Stage acts will include Andrew Bird’s Bowl of Fire, The Black Keys, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Bob Dylan, The Go! Team, Iggy & The Stooges, Kanye West, Lil Wayne, Nine Inch Nails, She & Him, Shudder to Think, Stone Temple Pilots and Taking Back Sunday.

Dance Tent acts on Saturday, Aug. 9 include, in alphabetical order, DJ Dan & Donald Glaude, Erol Alkan, Ferry Corsten, Soul Wax, Steve Lawler and Underworld. On Sunday, Aug. 10, the Dance Tent will feature Armin van Buuren, Chromeo, Deadmau5, Moby (DJ Set), Pendulum and Richie Hawtin.

And, yes, that was the Offspring printed one comma away from Bob Dylan; hopefully the apocalypse can hold out until after August.
