As we’re camping on our computers, eyes glued to the screen waiting for Coachella’s lineup, it’s nice to know we might have some actual outdoor camping to attend in the future. Just this morning, the music and nature extravaganza, 10,000 Lakes Festival, announced its initial line up, and if you’re a fan of all things rock (especially jam bands), then you’re in for quite the treat.

Sharing headlining duties, the Dave Matthews Band and Wilco will pioneer a four day weekend come July 22-25, out in the expansive, 500-acre Soo Pass Ranch, located in Detroit Lakes, Minnesota.

Dave Matthews Band, Widespread Panic (2 nights), Wilco, Umphrey’s McGee, Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings, Railroad Earth, Tea Leaf Green (2 nights), Junior Brown, WookieFoot, Trampled By Turtles, Cloud Cult, Everyone Orchestra, Kathleen Edwards, Pretty Lights, BoomBox, William Elliott Whitmore

Not too shabby, eh? With more on the way, some might say a trip to Minnesota is not only an idea, but a mandatory summer vacation when July rolls around. Who would have thought the coldest place in the nation right now, aside from Alaska, will host one of the most enjoyable summer parties? Tsk. Tsk.

If you’re as interested as we are, the first tier of general admission and VIP tickets are currently available and on-sale. Hurry up and plan soon, as the next tier will increase in price!
