Pearl Jam and Billy Talent Headline Virgin Fest Alberta
As we previously reported, the Virgin Music Festival has expanded in Canada this year and now includes dates in Nova Scotia, Ontario, Alberta and British Columbia. It was recently announced that Sonic Youth would be among the headliners in Vancouver, and now the Calgary line-up has been revealed.

Taking place on August 8 and 9 at Canada Olympic Park, the Calgary festival will feature Pearl Jam, K-OS, Thunderheist, Arkells, Mother Mother and the Cliks on the first day, and Billy Talent, Metric, Tokyo Police Club, White Lies and Shout Out Out Out Out on the second. Tickets for the weekend are $132, but the biggest alt-rock fans can instead shell out $300 for VIP passes if they want access to a premium lounge and a side-stage view.

Tickets go on sale on Sunday (July 4) and will be available at Ticketmaster or Future Shop.
