The two-day, two-stage festival will feature a diverse lineup including Cage the Elephant, Portugal. The Man, Manchester Orchestra, Mimosa, Justin Townes Earle, The Whigs and Sleeper Agent, among many others.

“We chose bands and DJ’s that move us, and that we thought would fit with the vibe of the festival,” says Cage The Elephant frontman, Matthew Shultz. “Starry Nights is about getting everyone together for a good time – It’s definitely about the music, but also, art, games, and just being out there under the stars.”

The vital Kentucky music scene is where Cage got their start, and preserving that opportunity for other local acts is a top priority. To that end, the festival has reserved a handful of slots for local bands. More information on that will follow.

Cage The Elephant:
Hailed as “…one of rock’s best young bands,” by Rolling Stone, Cage The Elephant had a successful 2011 with the release of their album Thank You Happy Birthday, a wildly-successful headlining North American tour and their critically acclaimed fall dates with the Foo Fighters. Their debut self-titled album was just certified gold by the RIAA and their current sophomore album Thank You Happy Birthday (RCA Records) has garnered the band rave reviews from the likes of Rolling Stone, New York Times, LA Times, USA Today, Entertainment Weekly, People and Alternative Press who heralded it “one of the best rock albums of the year.” With performances on The Late Show with David Letterman and Jimmy Kimmel Live!, it’s easy to see why Rolling Stone named Cage The Elephant “one of rock’s best young bands” and Thank You Happy Birthday as one of the best albums 2011.

Matisyahu has announced today that, for the first time in its history, he will take his annual Hanukkah celebration, Festival of Light, on tour. The series of shows, historically 8 shows in New York City and Brooklyn, will expand to additional northeast U.S. cities due to increasing demand from his fans. Set to kick off on November 29 at Brooklyn, NY’s Brooklyn Bowl, Matisyahu will perform four nights in Brooklyn - one show at the Brooklyn Bowl and three shows at Music Hall of Williamsburg – marking the fifth year in a row that he has brought his Festival of Light to hometown crowds. He’ll then head to Albany, Boston, Baltimore and Philadelphia before wrapping in Portland, ME on the last night of Hanukkah. Tickets go on sale on to the public on Friday, October 22nd while Matisyahu will hold a special pre-sale for his fans through Twitter and Facebook.

This year’s Festival of Light will offer audiences a career-spanning look at Matisyahu’s lauded catalogue. The shows will feature his most beloved songs as well as Matisyahu’s hand-picked selections for his fans. A very special re-mastered version of Matisyahu’s debut record, Shake Off The Dust, will be released around these shows. In keeping with the tradition of Festival of Light, fans can expect a very diverse group of support acts and special guests to be a part of these shows. Known for never performing the same show twice, Matisyahu has created a custom-built live experience for his audiences during each of these eight performances. Backed by his band, Brooklyn’s The Dub Trio, Matisyahu has rediscovered his love for roots reggae, beautifully exhibited in each song’s vocal and instrumental arrangements. With prolific lyrics and genre-bending musical directions, Matisyahu is one of the most dynamic and captivating live performers in music today. Be sure to catch him live during his last shows of 2010!
