More Wakarusa 2010 artists announced

It’s been a couple of weeks since Wakarusa announced the first 40 artists for this year’s festival on their Facebook page.

STS9, The Disco Biscuits, Blue Traveler, and a whole list of other bands were part of that first announcement, but we know from experience that these things come in waves. Last year, there were at least three official announcements.

We were alerted about this latest announcement by a tweet that came from the official Wakrusa Twitter account. At around noon Thursday, Wakarusa announced 40 more bands. There are some pretty enormous names on this list.

Here’s what we’ve found:
