The American installation of Virgin Mobile Fest will return to Pimlico Race Course Aug. 9-10, and the lineup has five big reasons to mark your calendars and purchase tickets ASAP: Kanye West, Foo Fighters, Nine Inch Nails, Jack Johnson, and reunited alt-rockers Stone Temple Pilots are on the bill for the fest's third annual installation.

Foo Fighters, the busy boys they are, will also headline Canada's V-Fest, scheduled to hit Toronto's Island Park Sept. 6-7, alongside Oasis, Bloc Party, and Paul Weller.

A complete bill for Baltimore's V-Fest has yet to be announced, but more acts will be revealed in the coming weeks.

Check out SPIN.com's coverage of last year's Virgin Fest, including interviews with Panic at the Disco, Bad Brains, Girl Talk, Incubus, and more.
