SoundTown 2012 lineup: Florence & The Machine, Weezer, Jane’s Addiction and more

This morning, SoundTown unveiled the first round of acts scheduled to perform at Somerset Amphitheater on July 26-28. As with last year, there will be a heavy contingent of local artists in addition to the event’s headliners, and organizers stepped up their booking this year by pulling in quite a few larger national acts that will be familiar to Current listeners.

Jane’s Addiction will return to the metro area after last month’s Brick fiasco to headline along with Weezer and Florence & The Machine; see the full lineup below. Weekend passes are $80 and go on sale April 28.
