Detroit Lakes, MN (June 18, 2009) – Summer is almost here and this year’s 10,000 Lakes Festival is just over a month away, taking place July 22-25 in Detroit Lakes, MN. Leading up to this year’s event, two of the 10,000 Lakes Festival’s headliners are releasing highly anticipated new albums in June with Dave Matthews Band’s Big Whiskey and The GooGrux King out June 2 on RCA, and WIlco’s Wilco (The Album) out June 29 on Nonesuch.
David Fricke of Rolling Stone lauds Dave Matthews Band’s new albums as “a lot like a New Orleans funeral parade — mourning and zest balled into big, brawny music” and Jim DeRogatis of the Chicago Sun-Times declares Wilco as “one of the most creative forces in rock today, with Tweedy evoking comparisons to greats such as Bob Dylan and Neil Young.” Both albums are available for review upon request.
Online music samples of the artists performing at 10KLF are now available via Pandora.com’s new 10,000 Lakes Festival streaming music channel available by visiting their 10KLF playlist here.
