MATISYAHU DOMINATES FESTIVAL CIRCUIT IN 2006!
Following closely on the success of his new studio album Youth, Matisyahu has lined up a series of major festival performances this summer, joining A-list talent at each stop along the way.
Coachella kicks things off on April 30, when Matisyahu performs as part of a bill that also includes Madonna, Depeche Mode, Tool, Paul Oakenfold, and others.
From there he makes his return to the Sasquatch Music Festival where he'll join Beck and Nine Inch Nails in George, WA on May 28, then visits Cleveland for the CMJ/Rock Hall Music Fest on June 15 -- The Fray and Alejandro Escovedo also perform.
On June 18 he graces the stage at Bonnaroo in Manchester, TN. Bonnaroo is something of a homecoming for Matisyahu -- he was one of the breakout acts at the festival last year, and even shared the stage for two songs with his musical hero Trey Anastasio. This year he'll be joining the main stage lineup which also includes Tom Petty, Radiohead, and Elvis Costello.
Things wrap up on August 6 with his first ever appearance at Lollapalooza in Chicago, IL, on a bill that also features the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Common, and Kanye West.
Youth recently made its bow at the #4 spot on the Billboard top 200 on March 7, and is fast on its way to joining Live at Stubb's in gold status.
