Rage, Daft Punk to Headline Vegoose ’07

Iggy and the Stooges reopen their Fun House, and Muse, Shins, QOTSA on board for Vegas fest.

The only sure bet in Vegas — the Vegoose festival — will return this October with a stellar headliner tandem and an excellent legacy spectacle: Rage Against the Machine and Daft Punk will hold the fest’s two top spots, and Iggy and the Stooges will perform their 1970 album Fun House in its entirety. Also on the Oct. 27-28 bill: Muse, the Shins, Cypress Hill, Michael Franti and Spearhead, Queens of the Stone Age, Public Enemy, Blonde Redhead, Ghostface Killah, Umphrey’s McGee, Ghostland Observatory, Thievery Corporation, Battles, and more acts to be announced later.

Two-day passes go onsale this Saturday at 10 A.M. PST at vegoose.com.

Also back in ’07 is the festival’s Vegoose at Night series, a set of shows featuring Vegoose bands on the stages of Vegas’ casinos; the Shins and Thievery Corporation are among the confirmed acts for the night sessions, and Vegoose ticket holders will have first crack at these intimate shows when they go onsale in August.
