Regardless of your opinion of DMB, there’s no denying their work ethic. The dudes even work during a hiatus!

In addition to three headlining sets by DMB, the lineup for the NJ edition of the “Dave Matthews Band Caravan” features The Flaming Lips, Bassnectar, Dr. Dog, Ray LaMontagne, Amos Lee, Thievery Corporation, Michael Franti and Spearhead, Warren Haynes Band, Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, Delta Spirit, David Gray, and O.A.R.

Other confirmed acts include Damian Marley, Guster, Lotus, Rebelution, Fitz and the Tantrums, Carolina Chocolate Drops, Lisa Hannigan, Punch Brothers, From Good Homes, Big Gigantic, Alberta Cross, Mariachi El Bronx, TR3, Vusi Mahlasela, The Budos Band and Bobby Long and special performances by Dave Matthews Band members Carter Beauford and Stefan Lessard plus a Dave Matthews & Tim Reynolds acoustic set. The festival will also include a number of late night shows at Atlantic City venues, but details are still forthcoming.

Tickets, which will be available as three-day passes only ($195), go on sale to general public on Friday, March 25th at 10AM EST via DMBCaravan.com. Also, an online ticket request period for the festival begins Monday, March 14th, at 10:00 AM ET and concludes Monday, March 21st, at 10:00 AM ET at warehouse.davematthewsband.com.
