2012 Corona Capital Music Fest Lineup Announced
As if you needed another reason to dream of Mexico’s sunny playas this fall, the lineup for the 2012 Corona Capital Music Festival has been revealed — and this year, the organizers have outdone themselves.
This year’s Capital Fest features a star-studded gaggle of artists, including the Black Keys, My Morning Jacket, Florence + the Machine, Cat Power, Sleigh Bells, M. Ward, the Walkmen, Neon Indian and the Alabama Shakes — not to mention a host of reunited or rejuvenated veteran acts such as New Order, Suede, Franz Ferdinand, and the Hives.
Want to be there? Of course you do. All you need to do is get yourself travel and lodging accommodations for Oct. 13 and 14 in Mexico City — and, of course, purchase tickets to the festival, currently available through the Corona Capital 2012 website. A one-day pass is listed at $900, with two-day passes running $1,400 and a one-day VIP pass costing a whopping $2,000 — but before you pass out from sticker shock, it’s worth noting that we’re pretty sure those are Mexican pesos, which means even the most expensive option will set you back less than 150 American dollars.
