Hippies And Hipsters Join Hands At Vegoose

Although the name Vegoose reminds me of a vegetarian dish a friend of mine ordered at our favorite Thai restaurant in Brooklyn, it is actually the latest music festival creation behind the people that brought us Bonnaroo. The hippies will be invading Las Vegas over Halloween weekend for this two-day concert at the Sam Boyd Stadium. The lineup is pretty damn diverse, with an impressive mix of artists that should make for an awesome clash of music fans. Jam band followers can enjoy watching their heroes Trey Anastasio and The String Cheese Incident while the hipsters can get their rock on with Spoon and The Arcade Fire. How well does PBR and patchouli go together? We’ll find out at Vegoose. Tickets go on sale tomorrow through their official website at 10am PST. Check out this list of confirmed artists:
