Announcing the inaugural Soundscape Music and Arts Festival. Set to take place September 11th, 12th, and 13th  2009 in Cape Cod, Massachusetts, the festival is seeking to bring a full scale music festival to the Northeast United States in one of the nation’s most naturally beautiful regions. When asked about the festival, promoters had this to say:


“We felt the Eastern United States was lacking a major music festival. The West Coast has Coachella and Sasquatch and the Midwest has Bonnaroo and Lollapalooza. We wanted to create a festival to rival those, one that will still be here in twenty years. When we set about finding a location, Cape Cod quickly became our first choice. With its size, natural beauty, and history of handling huge numbers of visitors each year, it seemed like the perfect local for a festival.”


The recently revitalized alternative trio R.E.M., trip-hop kings Massive Attack and “the biggest alt-rock band on the planet,” aka Radiohead, will head a strong line-up almost 100 strong over the three-day festival. The bands will play across 6 stages and tents with several special late-night sets each evening. Indie rock darlings Arcade Fire and the reunited shoegaze band My Bloody Valentine will be on hand as two of the festival’s subheadliners. And with an under card that’s reported to include My Morning Jacket, TV on the Radio, Dinosaur Jr., Hercules & Love Affair, Band of Horses, the Notwist, Ratatat, Animal Collective, Blonde Redhead, and Spiritualized among dozens of others, promoters look to have booked a line-up that is stacked top to bottom (sample downloads from these artists located at the bottom of this article. Organizers have also hinted at a “surprise” act that they want to keep under wraps for the moment. Although the suspense may seem cruel to interested parties, they promise that the surprise will be “worth the wait,” and any rumor floating around “pale in comparison to what [they] have in store.”
