Furthur, moe. join The Flaming Lips for inagural Nateva Festival

on February 18, 2010, 11:00pm

Last month, we told you about the emergence of a brand new three-day, multi stage, outdoor camping festival set to debut this Forth July Weekend in Oxford, ME. Filling the void of the currently postponed Rothbury Music Festival and the now deceased Up North Festival, the Nateva Music & Camping Festival promises to “offer an unprecedented line-up of the world’s top musicians in an intimate festival setting.”

The previously announced Flaming Lips, who will serve as the Saturday headliners, make up one part of that equation. The rest of the 2010 bill is just as stacked, as we can reveal that moe. will kick things off as the Friday headliner, while Furthur, the new project of the Grateful Dead’s Phil Lesh and Bob Weir, will cap off the festivities on Sunday.

What’s more, for those attendees who wish to come a bit early, Lotus will headline the Thursday night festivities. And we can also report that Keller Williams, Zappa Plays Zappa, and Moonalice will join The Derek Trucks & Susan Tedeschi Band as some of the festival’s sub-headliners. Dozens of additional performers will be announced in the coming weeks.

Weekend passes with and without camping are $249/$229 but are on sale now for a very limited time for $199/$179 at NatevaFestival.com. A limited number of VIP packages ($425) featuring special viewing platforms, preferred parking, camping, dining, a full-service bar, and more are also available.
