Published Jun 01, 2010St. Catharines, ON's S.C.E.N.E. Music Festival recently announced the first handful of confirmed bands for the 2010 edition of the day-long event, and considering those included Lights, Down with Webster and Shad, it looked like an eclectic line-up was in the works. Now that the 160-plus artist roster has been announced, we can confirm that is indeed the case.
Among the acts recently announced as being confirmed for S.C.E.N.E. are Cancer Bats, Library Voices, Magneta Lane, Cute Is What We Aim For, the Rebel Spell, Vilipend, the Lucky Ones, Daniel Wesley, Farewell to Freeway, Arkells, the Junction, Still Life Still, and Paper Lions. There will also be a "rap battle" with Zodiak/Q vs. Stepeasy/The Poet Trees, and Tino/Fats vs. Jay Kastro/Dextah Dunx. Headliners Grave Maker are apparently no longer playing the fest, as their MySpace page now indicates they are playing a show in New York instead.

The fest, now in its 15th year, goes down in downtown St. Catharines on June 27, across 17 stages in 13 venues.
Advance tickets will only be $25 (plus applicable service charges) and go on sale Saturday (May 1). Head here for ticket information.
