Bacchanal ’08: Not Just The National and Grizzly Bear

Written by

2008’s Bacchanal has been announced and a (mostly) complete schedule has been released. In addition to performances by Grizzly Bear and The National, this year’s festivities will include stand-up comedy by Greg Giraldo, an outdoor screening of Planet Earth on the Low steps for which absolutely no one will arrive stoned, and a Hawaiian Luau.

If you couldn’t tell from the indie rock, Hawaiian luau and stand-up comedy, this year’s theme is “Bacchanaliens.” “Fun has landed,” proclaims Bacchanal’s flyer; without an article, without a doubt.

UPDATE 8:04 PM: The outdoor screening of Planet Earth is on 4/20. Best. Bacchanal. Ever. (Thanks commenter no. 5!)

    Watching Planet Earth "stoned" is a waste. I expect acid coming out of everyone's ears.
