Richardson's Wildflower Festival has just announced its 2014 lineup. As in years past, it's heavy on bands whose recorded output peaked before 2000, but in this case it doesn't feel like nostalgia. Not when the names are as big and influential as this year's headliners, which include Cheap Trick, Kool and the Gang, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts and plenty more. The full list announced today is below.
This year's Wildflower fest will be from May 16 to 18 in Galatyn Park. Three-day passes are $30 and go on sale Monday, April 14. You can also buy single-day tickets for $20; kids under 12 are $3 and under 4 are free.
