Life is Good Announces Lineup

lifeisgood01Life is Good Festival just released their 2013 lineup this week and they have some big names this year! Rock and soul duo, Daryl Hall and John Oats are slated to headline on Saturday night while Jack Johnson, Upside Down and Better Together singer/songwriter, will close out the festival on Sunday night.  This past weekend, Johnson filled in for Mumford & Sons at Bonnaroo when their bassist underwent surgery on his brain to remove a blood clot.

This particular festival is all about spreading good vibes and optimism through music, non-profit efforts and family-friendly activities. What better way to do that than through the music of Daryl Hall & John Oats, Yo Gabba Gabba! and Jack Johnson? Other artists on the bill include Good Old War, Jesse Dee, Delta Rae, Dawes and more to be announced. The Life is good Coffee House, curated by Ryan Montbleau, will be open both days and lineup will be released later this summer.

Each year, the festival has raised more money for the Life is Good Playmakers than the year before. Playmakers help children overcome poverty, neglect, illness and violence through play, where children make healthy relationships and develop a sense of self worth. Last year, they raised over $1,000,000! In 2012, over 60,000 people attended the festival in Canton, MA. while 30,000 more watched the live stream on lifeisgood.com.
