Virgin Festival announces full lineup

Now in season two, the Virgin Festival brings together some of the biggest names of the past, present, and future for 2 days of glorious rock and roll out on a horse race track. The two headliners that were initially announced were The Police and The Smashing Pumpkins. Those two alone were enough to inspire some excitement but now that the 2-day lineup has been disclosed, well, it’s hard to believe that this thing won’t sell out.
