XX Merge Festival announces first bands, details
The big XX Merge Festival we first mentioned back in January finally has some confirmed bands and details. The 5-day festival will happen from July 22 to July 26. Four nights will be at the Cat's Cradle and one will be at UNC's Memorial Hall.
Here are the confirmed bands so far.
The Broken West
Merge says that more bands "expected and unexpected" are still to be announced as well as other events besides the concerts at night. Check out even more deatils about the show here.
5-day passes will go on sale Wednesday, April 8 at 10 am via catscradle.com and mergerecords.com for $150. They will be non-transferable. There will also be a block of rooms held at the Holiday Inn in Chapel Hill for $85 a night for out-of-towners, but if you're thrifty, you can find a room cheaper than that.
This is a show you won't want to miss. So far the line-up is killer and there's more to come.
