Iggy and the Stooges, the Strokes, the New York Dolls and Bo Diddley lead the lineup for Little Steven’s International Underground Garage Festival. An offshoot of Little Steven’s Underground Garage radio show, the event will be held Aug. 14 at New York’s Randall’s Island. Tickets are $20 and are available through Ticketmaster.
Rounding out the lineup is the Raveonettes, the Pretty Things, the Mooney Suzuki, the Romantics, the Chesterfield Kings, the Fuzztones, the Electric Prunes, the Contrast, Cocktail Strippers, the High Dials, the Chains and Flaming Sideburns. The winner of Little Steven and Dunkin’ Donuts’ Underground Garage Battle of the Bands, to be held July 23 at New York’s Irving Plaza, will also get the chance to perform at the festival.
The Garage Festival stage will be created by Pink Floyd production designer Mark Brickman. Organizers also claim the event aims to “set the world record for most go-go dancers appearing in one show.”
