10,000 Lakes Festival Confirms The Tragically Hip, Zappa Plays Zappa

Detroit Lakes, MN - March 29, 2007 – The fifth annual 10,000 Lakes Festival (10KLF) held July 18 – 21 at the Soo Pass Ranch in Detroit Lakes, Minn. is quickly becoming the summer's must attend live music and camping event. Adding artists to its growing lineup, 10KLF announces the confirmation of these groups:

The Tragically Hip
Zappa Plays Zappa
Particle
Blueground Undergrass
Outformation
The Lee Boys
Big Organ Trio
That 1 Guy

Continuing the high standards of musical excellence that festivarians expect, this year's 10,000 Lakes Festival lineup already features Bob Weir & RatDog, Trey Anastasio, The Disco Biscuits, Umphrey's McGee, moe., Keller Williams, Gov't Mule, Little Feat, The Derek Trucks Band, New Riders of the Purple Sage, Ivan Neville's Dumpstaphunk, Everyone Orchestra, Trampled By Turtles, Pnuma Trio, God Johnson, GypsyFoot, Bump, Mr. Blotto, WookieFoot, The Burnin' Smyrnans, The Heavy Pets, and Moses Mayes.

Additional acts recently confirmed in this round include Kinetix, Stealin' Strings, Down Lo, White Iron Band, Hobo Nephews, The Smokin' Bandits, Unity, Madahoochi, and The Lighterside of Being.

Over the past four summers 10KLF has grown into the Midwest's premier festival destination through its mix of subdued natural beauty and world class live music. As the most recent addition to the lineup, The Tragically Hip has grown into one of Canada's most beloved bands over the past two decades by mixing traditional and roots rock, releasing eleven albums and offering intimate connections with its audience.

Zappa Plays Zappa is Dweezil Zappa's live tribute to the prolific and 'legendarily intricate' music of his father, Frank Zappa, with the moniker 'Accept No Substitutes.' Performing at the 10,000 Lakes Festival as the group's only American summer festival appearance, Dweezil Zappa is joined by a hand-picked crew of focused musicians as well as legendary Zappa band alum, Napoleon Murphy Brock, who all perform Frank's timeless music meticulously.

"I would love to expose multiple younger generations to Frank's music," Dweezil says. "There will always be people looking for an alternative form of musical entertainment and I happen to feel that Frank's music is certainly worth a listen. I really think that younger audiences would be fascinated by it because it's so different than anything they're exposed to currently."


Held July 18 – 21 at the scenic Soo Pass Ranch in Detroit Lakes, Minnesota, the fifth annual 10,000 Lakes Festival announces additional confirmed artists for this summer's event. Supplementing an already diverse lineup of talent from the improvisational music scene, 10KLF is proud to welcome:

To include the region's top independent and unsigned talent, 10KLF announces the Cosmic Break Tour. Interested bands can submit their music to perform at one of a series of ten regional showcases where one band at each tour stop wins a performance slot at the festival. Bands outside the region can submit to the Cosmic Break Online Voting Booth where fans' web votes determine the top three bands outside of the regional showcases that get to play the festival. The full information on the 10KLF Cosmic Break Tour including tour dates, cities and event rules is available online at www.10klf.com.

Nestled in the picturesque lakes country of Minnesota's North Woods, the serene natural environment with reclaimed wetlands and lakeshore surrounding the camping and venue grounds provides the ultimate festival experience. All within easy walking distance of each other, the festival's four stages feature over sixty national, independent and emerging acts during the 4 day event. Festival goers retreat within the festival's wooded hills and shaded campsites as a soundtrack from the jam band world's crème de la crème plays in the background.

The feedback from the media echoes responses from attendees. The Minneapolis Star Tribune admires that the 10,000 Lakes Festival was "filled with thousands of good vibes... The cutting edge of them all." JamBase.com calls 10KLF "gold from the North Country." Colorado's Marquee Magazine affirms that "10KLF creates the summer's best musical experience," and Canada's Jambands.ca remarks the event is "everything a festival should be."

While the main focus of 10KLF is meshing top notch entertainment within a pristine natural setting, the event also takes pride in being a philanthropic member of the community. By providing grants to a variety of groups including environmental awareness, hunger prevention, advancing arts education, voter registration, and other causes, 10KLF offers its patrons the opportunity to learn more about and raise consciousness within a variety of topics affecting its precious surroundings.

By partnering with CLIF Bar and NativeEnergy, the 10,000 Lakes Festival now allows patrons to offset the CO2 emissions of their automobile or airline travel up to the festival by purchasing 'Cool Tags' at the online ticket check out. Each Cool Tag invests $2 in NativeEnergy's WindBuilders program, helping the Rosebud Sioux Tribe build a wind farm on their reservation in South Dakota. Wind farms deliver clean, renewable energy to the grid without releasing CO2 into the air, thereby displacing energy that comes from polluting facilities.
