If it’s Tuesday, it’s time to find out about the latest entrant into the more-crowded-than-ever 2008 festival lineup! Say hello to the brand-new Mile High Music Festival, which is headlined by Dave Matthews Band, Tom Petty, and John Mayer; it’s scheduled to take place July 19 and 20 in a park that’s nine miles outside of downtown Denver. (For those of you marking calendars, yes, that’s the same weekend as the Pitchfork Music Festival. So much for Petty playing Full Moon Fever on Friday night in Chicago!) The current announced lineup–which, be warned, bills OneRepublic above the Roots–after the jump.
