On board for the fun, which runs September 2-20, are Cheap Trick, the Detroit Cobras, The Hackensaw Boys, and Charlie Louvin of the Louvin Brothers. The lineup is about as different from last year’s list as you can get, although the eclectic thread still shows. The 2002 version saw Cake joined by De La Soul, The Flaming Lips, Kinky, and Modest Mouse.

It seems the Unlimited Sunshine tour was Cake’s idea of a festival outing, minus the festival. The band wanted to provide a package tour with top-notch artists, providing nothing but good tunes for concert-goers.

“We don’t want tents, we don’t want fire-eaters,” Cake mainman John McCrea told Rolling Stone. “We just want people to hang out and listen to music they don’t hate. There’s not a certain tattoo you wear for us. We’re not against tattooing or piercing, we just think we’re not qualified to comment on them. We’re music workers.”
