Pearl Jam to host music festival in summer 2011

If Phish can do it, then certainly Pearl Jam can, too. Per Guerrilla Candy, longtime Pearl Jam manager Kelly Curtis confirmed in a recent interview on Sirius/XM Radio that the band plans to celebrate their 20th anniversary with their very own music festival next summer. While details are limited, Kelly noted that the the summer shindig will take place not in the band’s hometown of Seattle, but rather “somewhere in the middle of the country.”

Pearl Jam’s 20th anniversary already includes a new live album and an Eddie Vedder solo tour of Australia (dates below). More details as they become available.
