Rage Against the MachineSuperfly Productions and A.C. Entertainment, creators of the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival, are proud to announce the initial line up for Vegoose 2007. The third annual installment of this dynamic entertainment experience will be staged in Las Vegas on Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 27 and 28, at Sam Boyd Stadium, encompassing the surrounding complex – highlighted by the 30-acre grassy Star Nursery Field with its stunningly beautiful mountain backdrop. Two-day passes to the event will go on sale this Saturday at 10:00 AM PST only at www.vegoose.com.

Known for setting the high standard in creating the perfect balance in eclectic programming for American festivals, Superfly and A.C. Entertainment have once again made Vegoose the ultimate fall season destination for live music fans. Headlining the 2007 festival are Rage Against the Machine and Daft Punk. In addition, Iggy & the Stooges will be performing their classic album "Fun House" live in its entirety for the first time in the USA. Also confirmed are Muse, The Shins, Cypress Hill, Michael Franti and Spearhead, Queens of the Stone Age, Public Enemy, Blonde Redhead, Ghostface Killah & The Rhythm Roots Allstars, Umphrey's McGee, Ghostland Observatory, Thievery Corporation, The Battles and more.

Daft PunkReferring to the evolution of the Vegoose lineup, Superfly's Jonathan Mayers stated, "It's really exciting for us to be able to bring acts like Rage and Daft Punk into the sphere of artists we present. With it being our third year in Vegas, we know how strongly these artists will connect with both the local fans and travelers looking to have an unforgettable music experience in a special environment." A list of the currently confirmed acts for 2007 line up is below. More confirmations will be announced in the coming weeks.

In addition to a stellar musical lineup, the festival will host a tantalizing array of other activities and attractions. Building on features from the past—such as the Impersonators Café, the Wedding Chapel, the Vegoose Cabaret and the Great Evil Pumpkin—organizers are planning even more tricks and treats for this year's festival.

Augmenting the festival experience at Sam Boyd Stadium, Vegoose will also include Vegoose at Night, a series of separately ticketed indoor performances including The Shins, Thievery Corporation, STS9 and others – starting Friday evening, Oct. 26 and continuing late night on Saturday and Sunday – at such premier Vegas venues as the House of Blues, the Joint, and the Pearl. The complete Vegoose at Night lineup will be announced in the coming weeks. These shows will go on sale in mid-August, with Vegoose ticket holders given the opportunity to purchase tickets first in an exclusive pre-sale.

Iggy PopThe media response to Vegoose has been fantastic: "Spin" said, "The festival served up something for everyone, from hippies to hipsters, nuns to nocturnal gamblers…it's easy to see how Vegoose can become an annual tradition," while "Rolling Stone" declared: "City of Sin vices aside, all these musicians and more were in Las Vegas this past Halloween weekend for another reason: Vegoose, baby, Vegoose...With the festival over, fans wandered out talking about which hotel on the strip they would stay at next year." "Harp" cheered: "A carefully woven pastiche of all that is good and right about the American musical tradition."
