After months of uncertainty it looks like the Virgin Music Festival is actually happening!

Which is surprising after last year’s lackluster line ups, especially in Calgary.

So far only Montreal and Halifax’s artists have been announced, but so far so very very good!
Montreal: Black Eyed Peas, Simple Plan, Hedley, The New Cities, Eva Avila, Stereos, Kreesha Turner, New Kids on the Blog, Akon, Live, Lights, Divine Brown, Jabba Wockeez and David Usher!
Halifax: The Tragically Hip, The Offspring, Metric, Dinosaur Jr, Hey Rosetta!, Plants and Animals and Aarkells!
Still to be announced are line ups for BC, Alberta and Ontario!  But so far it’s looking pretty promising!!!
Passes range from $75 to $313
UPDATE: X 92.9 has some interesting theories on Calgary’s Virgin Fest.  Could Green Day be in the mix?  Check it out here!
