DeLuna Festival 2012 Announces Lineup, Pearl Jam and Foo Fighters Headlining

Yesterday, CNN ran an interesting article about Southern stereotypes, "The South: Not all Bubbas and Banjos."

"The lower right-hand portion of the U.S. of A. is often pigeonholed as a tobacco-spittin', Bible-thumpin', gun-totin' (and worse) backwater," writes Todd Leopold. "So go ahead, fry up the buckwheat cakes, spoon out the grits and cue the mockery. It's nothing new."

What the fuck are buckwheat cakes? The South we know is filled with beer, bathing suits, and beachside music festivals like Pensacola's DeLuna Fest.

Celebrating its third year, DeLuna unveiled the 2012 festival lineup earlier today with Pearl Jam and Foo Fighters headlining a field of over 40 acts. A third headliner will be announced in the upcoming months. Check the cut for the complete lineup so far.
