Festivals like Lollapalooza and Coachella put their future attendees through days and days of aggravation, demanding patience until the final release of their lineups. The folks at Bumbershoot aren’t that cruel. Beginning this Sunday, May 1, Bumbershoot will be announcing an artist a day in the month of May, leading up to the full lineup on June 1, 2011. The announcement for each day will occur around noon PST. Bumbershoot will have more information about “An Artist a Day in May” on their Facebook, twitter, and blog.
Yesterday, Bumbershoot_PR tweeted the announcement of their “An Artist a Day in May,” with “(Soundgarden?)” included in the 140 characters. That tweet has since been deleted. What the heck is going on here? Did an over eager tweeter try to stir up some buzz, or am I a liar? We’ll find out all too soon. – Nikki Benson
