The lineup for this summer's Grand Point North festival has been announced. The two-day music fest hits Burlington's Waterfront Park Saturday and Sunday, September 14 and 15. Vermont's first lady of rock, Grace Potter, coproduces, along with Higher Ground Presents. As is tradition, Potter headlines both nights of the event.

Joining Potter are alternative rock band Rainbow Kitten Surprise, soul-funk juggernauts Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, Americana oddballs Lucius, singer-songwriter J.S Ondara, indie-rock sensation Lucy Dacus, psych-soul artist Micahel Nau, Afrobeat ensemble Lady Moon & the Eclipse and indie-folk trio Bailen.
As always, a heap of Vermont-based artists round out the bill: singer-songwriter Francesca Blanchard, pop-rock newcomers Matthew Mercury, garage-punks the Bubs (FKA the Fobs), slacker-rockers J Bengoy, West African fusion group Sabouyouma and R&B producer/singer-songwriter Princess Nostalgia.

More artists are expected to be added to the lineup, including the winners of this year's Grand Point North Local Band Contest, co-sponsored by Seven Days. The competition's nomination round runs from Monday, July 8, through Sunday, July 14. Voting commences the following day, Monday, June 15, and concludes on Sunday, July 21.
