Okay, whoever speculated that Dave Matthews Band and the Samples were going to be a part of this year's Mile High Music Festival: Sorry we doubted you. You were right, evidently. So was the guy who said Jack Johnson, as well as the person who pointed us in the direction of the erroneous link to TicketHorse yesterday, featuring what turned out to be the actual lineup.
Morris was just on KBCO with Bret Sanders, where he just revealed the full lineup for the festival, which looks a bit stronger on Sunday (that's also when the bulk of the locals are playing). He also confirmed is indeed taking place on Saturday, August 14 and Sunday, August 15. For a limited time two day passes will be available for $150 beginning this Saturday, April 10 at 9:30 a.m. See the full lineup after the jump.
Saturday, August 14: Jack Johnson, Steve Miller Band, Slightly Stoopid, Phoenix, Nas & Damian "Jr. Gong" Marley, Keane, Cypress Hill, Derek Trucks & Susan, Tedeschi Band, the Samples (all original members), Keller Williams, Rusted Root, Donavon Frankenreiter, One eskimO, Mayer Hawthorne & the County, ALO, Amos Lee, the Constellations, the Motet, Bobby Long, MyNameIsJohnMichael.
