The festival is to last a fortnight. It will feature such highly talented groups as OutKast, Muse and Arcade Fire. Then there are the alternative lot such as Beck, Queens of the Stone Age and Bryan Ferry. Even Motorhead managed to grab an enviable spot among the performers.
And while the very famous band known as U2 are not included this time around, they could enter the arena next year. The tickets to the event are up for grabs. Their price range is from about $400 to $800 depending on the quality of seating space.
The rapper Nas will be available at the event. As for the Wu Tang Clan and other similar groups, the event will be marked by their conspicuous absence. Such famous rap artists as Dr Dre and Eminem not to mention Snoop Doggy Dog will also not be attending the occurrence.
However, some jazz performers did make it into the festival list. Anthony Green, the Dum Dum Girls and Skrillex not to mention that genius, Pharrell Williams will all be there to lend their voices and visions to the audience. Music is the best means of catharsis in a frustrated world. And this festival proves the worth of that journey all the way from the tonic sol fa to the electronic techno-beat of today.
