"We believe that we have created a true spirit with this festival," says Paul Tollett of show promoter Goldenvoice.

We've got a great location with panoramic views, amazing sunsets, and nice weather."

Tickets go on sale Saturday (March 2) via Ticketmaster. Single-day tickets are $75; a limited-amount of two-day tickets will be available for $125. The event will be sponsored this year by Heineken, Virgin Megastore, and Playstation 2.
