KahBang Fest 2013 line-up leaked on Twitter, looks good ya’ll

Oh, hey, looks like there’s going to be a Ferris wheel at KahBang, the annual summer music, film and arts fest up in Bangor, Maine, this year. At least according to the above flyer, which was leaked (by the fest) Tuesday night and then passed around the Twittersphere. The fest turns five this year, which — if you’re a particularly tall 5-year-old — is big enough to take a spin on the wheel at most carnivals. Also, they want a pony.

No word yet if anyone will be gifting them with a mini horse in August (but we’re willing to bet our slice of birthday cake that someone shows up with a pony) but what we can tell you is that the music lineup looks damn good. If you procrastinated and missed out on nabbing your tix for Newport Folk Fest next month (everything but Friday passes now sold out) you can still get a solid dose of folk-leaning festivities in this summer.

Highlights include Oberhofer, Dr. Dog, Lucius, Lights, Paper Diamond, Break Science, Black Light Dinner Party and Aer.

Also on the bill: We’re proud to see Boston and greater Northeast artists including Mean Creek, Lady Lamb the Beekeeper, Herra Terra, Spose and the Bynars repping the local tip.

KahBang runs Aug. 8-11 in Bangor. Some tickets on sale now. See you there, with or without a pony (please bring a pony.) kahbang.com
