Preview: Dave Matthews Band Caravan, Atlantic City
by Andrew Swartz, published June 22nd 2011
The radically hyped Dave Matthews Band Caravan will be making its first stop at Atlantic City’s Bader Field from June 24-26th. Eclectic is an understatement when describing the lineup. Spanning three days, the mobile-festival will showcase heavy-hitters such as The Flaming Lips, O.A.R., Damien Marley, Thievery Corporation, Bassnectar, Ray Lamontagne and many more.
The host of the caravan, Dave Matthews Band, will play a full set every night, in addition to a set featuring Dave Matthews and guitarist Tim Reynolds on a date TBA. For anyone living in the Philadelphia/Jersey area, this is surely an event worth seeing. General Admission tickets are still on sale starting at $85 for a single-day pass, but they run up to $195 for a three-day pass. The full lineup and schedule can be found at dmbcaravan.com, along with a helpful FAQ for all of your questions.
