Headliners for 2008 Virgin Mobile Festival

The headliners for the 2008 Virgin Mobile Festival, scheduled for August 9 and 10 at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, have been announced. The headliners- Stone Temple Pilots, Foo Fighters, Nine Inch Nails, Kanye West, and Jack Johnson- skew pretty heavy towards the aging rocker variety so the other acts (still unannounced) will have to be pretty spectacular for me to consider it. Tickets for both days last year were $175 for general admission and getting to Pimlico without a car will be no small feat. But if the lineup is speaking to you and you'd just as well skip the mud and questionable toilets that seem to be a feature at other summer music festivals, or you'd like the chance to recoup what you paid for your ticket at the track, it could be a good bet.
