Starscape Festival 2011 tickets to go on sale in January
Tickets for Starscape, the overnight, electronic and dance music festival that takes place on the shores of the Chesapeake Bay in June, will go on sale in January, organizers just said.
The festival, which takes place at Fort Armistead Park June 4, will begin at 2 p.m. and end at 6 a.m.
Organizers won't announce a lineup until February, but Chromeo, Disco Biscuits, and the Bridge performed in 2009; hip-hop pioneer Slick Rick performed the year before.
The festival has been growing since it began 12 years ago. In 2007, some 7,000 people attended. And organizers say 2010 was the first year tickets sold out.
Credit that with the early ticket sales.
In 2011, the festival will have an all-night main stage, a dance tent, a bass tent, and even a beach stage for dub step acts, organizers said.
Tickets will go on sale January 5 at the festival's website, www.starscapefestival.com. General admission is $52.50, and VIP admission is $142.50.
