Published: 2007-03-23
America's second annual Virgin Festival has scored some top talent.

The newly reunited Police and Smashing Pumpkins as well as rap pioneers the Beastie Boys are all playing at this year's festival. Set to take place at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore from August 4-5 this year's festival will feature fewer, but bigger acts, producer Seth Hurwitz told Billboard, "We only have 12 slots a day on two big stages, and our concept is to fill our slots with the absolute best talent available."

This year's festivities will be taking place on the same weekend as another major music fest; Lollapalooza. That festival will be taking place in Chicago however the lineup has yet to be announced.

More acts are set to be announced soon according to the official website as well as on-sale dates and prices for tickets.

Virgin Festivals will also be taking place in Toronto and Vancouver boasting acts like The Smashing Pumpkins, Bjork, The Killers and My Chemical Romance.
