After a successful launch in May of 2010, the open-air, downtown Dallas-hosted Homegrown Music and Arts Festival will return again in 2011, this time taking place on May 14, and once again at Main Street Garden.
And the festival, brought to you by the folks behind Club Dada and City Tavern, is stepping its game up in fairly significant fashion this time around if the just-announced lineup of all locally spring acts is any indication. Among this year's performers? Neon Indian, School of Seven Bells, Astronautalis, The Riverboat Gamblers and Slobberbone.
We're told that another act will be announced in the coming days and weeks, but, for now, you can see the lineup, which only includes
four five holdovers from last year's fest (This Will Destroy You, Analog Rebellion, The O's, Ishi and Grant Jones & The Pistol Grip Lassos), after the jump.
