Update 06/21/10 – KROQ (who was a major partner in the first Epicenter show) has reported that they will announce the lineup today at 5pm. In addition, Gavin Rossdale has basically confirmed his involvment via Twitter today by informing the masses that he will be visiting KROQ at 5pm today.

I can’t deny – one of the best shows I attended last year was the inaugural Epicenter Festival. Put on by the fine folks who bring you Rock On The Range – the Fairplex @ Pomona was treated to killer performances by Tool, Street Sweeper Social Club, Alice in Chains and more (we were also treated to less than stellar performances by Wolfmother and Atreyu, but hey it’s a festival – what can you do?).
With the 2010 Epicenter announcement just days away – folks on the Coachella boards are claiming that the below graphic leaked earlier this week on the festivals website.
One look at the routing schedule for KISS this summer would make one believe the festival would be held on September 25h (Saturday) – which is a month later than last years event. In addition, I have confirmation from a reliable source that a certain band of So-Cal Skate Punks will be on the bill, yet are not listed on this graphic.
As of Thursday afternoon 06/17/10 – who knows who is really playing the 2010 Epicenter Festival? Make sure to keep an eye here Monday once the official lineup is announced.
