With the likes of Further, The Flaming Lips, moe., and STS9 already announced, the inaugural Nateva Music Festival has already provided many jam fans a comparable replacement for the now deceased Rothbury Music Festival.

But, as it turns out, Nateva won’t strictly be a ten-minute-jam-a-palooza affair. Today, the Oxford, Maine based festival, which is set to take place over Fourth of July weekend, added several well known indie bands to its 2010 bill. Included are She & Him, Passion Pit, Grizzly Bear, Drive-By Truckers, Jakob Dylan & Three Legs, and The Constellations.

Ghostland Observatory, Jackie Greene, The Crash Kings, Mark Karan’s Jemimah Puddleduck, Rustic Overtones, Lettuce, Gypsy Tailwind, EOTO, Big Gigantic, The Brew, Toubab Krewe, and The Indobox are among the other acts to have been added. So are Roots of Creation, Bow Thayer & Perfect Trainwreck, Nate Wilson Group, Alchemystics, The Kind Buds, Adam Ezra Group, McLovins, The Heavy Pets and the Nephrock! Allstars, You Can Be a Wesley, Billy Keane and the Misdemeanor Outlaws, Brenda, The Mallet Brothers, Grand Hotel, and Magic Magic. You can find the complete lineup here.


The Nateva Music Festival runs from July 2-4 at the Oxford Fairgrounds in Oxford, Maine. Weekend passes with and without camping are $219/$199 and can be had via NatevaFestival.com. A limited number of VIP packages ($425) featuring special viewing platforms, preferred parking, camping, dining, a full-service bar, and more are also available.
