According to some recent tweets and a report by DCRTV.com, the beloved alternative rock festival, HFStival, is coming back this fall. I've read that the festival would take place September 18 at Merriweather Post Pavilion and would feature the acts Third Eye Blind, Fuel, Presidents of the USA, Marcy's Playground, Billy Idol, Better Than Ezra, and The Fixx.
If these rumors are true, it sounds like the whole festival would be a giant throwback to the heyday of the radio station WHFS, which ended its full-time run on 99.1 in 2005. I have a phone call in over at Merriweather to confirm, but I haven't heard back yet. Anyone heard similar news?
