April 20, 1999|By Staff reports

Radio station WHFS-FM (99.1) yesterday announced a powerhouse lineup for its annual HFStival, which is coming to Baltimore's PSINet Stadium on May 29.

Among the alterna-rock headliners at the 10th annual fest are the Red Hot Chili Peppers, the Goo Goo Dolls and Sugar Ray.

Other acts include the Offspring, Silverchair, Orgy, Live, Lit, Beth Orton, Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Citizen King, Buckcherry, 2 Skinnee J's, the Freestylers, Blink 182, Ozomatli, Sev and local favorite Jimmie's Chicken Shack.

The new PSINet Stadium will allow attendance of 75,000, a significant increase over the approximately 56,000 capacity of the old venue, Washington's RFK Stadium. As usual, besides two stages of music, there will be other amusements, vendors, virtual-reality rides and a "Trancemissions" tent featuring techno music.

Tickets are $25 for the daylong concert and go on sale May 1 at 9 a.m. at Ticketmaster outlets. Call 410-481-SEAT.
