Preakness InFieldFEST tickets go on sale; Mug Club returns; music headliners TBA

Tickets for the 2011 Preakness InFieldFEST went on sale today, the Maryland Jockey Club announced. It is the festival's third anniversary.

Organizers said music headliners for the event would be announced later this month. Last year, O.A.R. and Zac Brown Band performed. In addition to the headliners, there will also be live music on a second stage, though it's unclear what that will consist of.

The Jockey Club is also bringing back the Mug Club for a second time.  That's the all-you-can-drink bottomless mug you get for $20 more.

Tickets, starting at $40, are being sold on or the Preakness Ticket Sales Office.

The 136th Preakness will take place May 21 at Pimlico Race Course. Also happening around then: the unveiling of Rams Head Live's new outdoor stage
