While we are still awaiting an announcement regarding the fate of the US Virgin Mobile Festival, our neighbor to the north has committed to hosting 5 “Virgin Mobile Festival” events this year, two of which have already announced dates and initial lineups. Any way you look at it, the lineup for the two day Montreal Virgin Festival is weak, the just announced lineup for the one day Halifax Virgin Festival looks pretty promising though.
