V Festival Comes to America!

Once held exclusively in England, Virgin brings its acclaimed music festival to the U.S. for the first time on Sept. 23 in Baltimore.

While most associate the name Virgin with phones, records, or airplanes, now “rock festival” can be added to the list. This year, the Virgin Music Festival, once only held in Great Britain, is expanding to the U.S, and more specifically, Baltimore, Maryland’s Pimlico Race Course on Sept. 23. Stay tuned to SPIN.com on Monday, July 17 when we exclusively unveil the festival lineup! The Red Hot Chili Peppers have already announced plans to play, but expect an awesome roster of talent to join them on the bill. Toronto is also getting its own V Fest Sept. 9-10 with artists like the Flaming Lips, Massive Attack, Gnarls Barkley, and the Raconteurs on board.

Talk: What bands do you hope will be unveiled as V Festival performers this year? COMMENT
