Who will be the GOTV Friday Night 'Family' Headliner?
The 2010 Gathering of the Vibes Music Festival (July 29-Aug. 1) lineup is almost complete. One thing is missing: a Friday night "family" headliner.
GOTV will release the highly anticipated lineup addition on Saturday, May 15 at Noon. So who will be the "family" headliner for Friday night? Well, it has been hard to find any substantial rumors, but the obvious hope for all Vibe Tribers has to be Bob Weir and Phil Lesh's new band, Furthur. And it just so has it, Furthur added two new shows at the Nokia Theatre in New York City's Times Square for Wednesday, July 28 and Thursday, July 29, which would put them just a short bus ride from Bridgeport, CT - home of GOTV - for Friday, July 30. The only thing that concerns me is that Furthur announces all of their new show additions on Friday's and the announcement of the final headliner is scheduled for Saturday. But maybe I am just looking to deep into it.
My initial take was that if Furthur wasn't on the original lineup, than they weren't going to be added. But the more I look at the Furthur schedule, and the fact that Bobby or Phil have attended every Vibes over the past 14 years, leads me to believe it could happen.
What do you think. Will Furthur be the Friday night headliner at Vibes? And if not, who will it be?
