As of today, the fest's website has announced another major addition: the 1,200 seat Memorial Auditorium located in the Progress Energy Center for the Performing Arts (the same building that houses the Fletcher Opera Theatre, which was a new venue in 2011). With such a large capacity indoor venue, one can't help but speculate the type of acts that will be booked for this year's event. To give you an idea of the potential here, Memorial Auditorium has housed bands such as the Decemberists and Primus in the past, and their upcoming schedule includes Nick Lowe, Art Garfunkel, and Feist. For now, though, we can only guess who will grace the stage at Memorial; the lineup won't be announced until April, but three-day wristbands and VIP passes are already on sale at the festival's official website.
