The Flaming Lips @ GoogaMooga 2013 (more by Dana (Distortion) Yavin)
The Great GoogaMooga is a partially-free food and music festival that debuted in Brooklyn's Prospect Park in 2012. It's put on by Superfly (Bonnaroo, Outside Lands) and Gapers Block are reporting that permits have been submitted for a Chicago festival in Lincoln Park. It looks like JAM Productions will be assisting Superfly, and that the fest, if it happens, will take place in late-August. A formal announcement hasn't been made yet.
If this does actually happen, hopefully Chicago has better luck than they had so far in Brooklyn where the first year was too packed and refunds were given to all VIP ticket holders and the second year was plagued by last minute band cancellations and rain all weekend. In fact, yesterday (Sunday, 5/19) was supposed to be the third day of the 2nd year of GoogaMooga, but was completely cancelled shortly after doors were scheduled to open.
Stay tuned for more information...
