More bands are being announced for the Mile of Music festival planned for August in downtown Appleton, a list that includes the Milwaukee-based Field Report.

Organizers of the Aug. 8-11 multi-venue music festival earlier announced the headliner lineups at the Lawrence Memorial Chapel. That lineup includes, among others, event organizer Cory Chisel as well as alt-country legend Rodney Crowell and Justin Townes Earle.

Dave Willems, a co-organizer of the first-time event with Chisel, said the rest of the lineup, which could include upwards of 80 bands and 120 performances, is beginning to come together.

The three Feature Stage venues will be Luna’s, Stansbury Theater and Anduzzi’s/The Alley Outdoor Patio. Bands slotted to play one of those venues include:

• Those Darlins, a three-piece female combo from Nashville.

• Jonny Fritz, a country singer-guitarist from Nashville.

• The Blakes, a Seattle-based rock band.

• Brian Vander Ark of The Verve Pipe.

• Swear and Shake, a four-member, Brooklyn-based indie folk band.

• Field Report, a Milwaukee-based folk band.

• Right Away, Great Captain, the solo side effort of Manchester Orchestra’s lead singer Andy Hull.

“These are some of the best original music bands and singer-songwriters in their regions, and it’s going to be really cool to see how their music and artistry is received by music lovers in the Fox Cities,” Chisel said in a released statement.

Details on when and where those bands will play have not been released yet.

Chisel also announced that his band partner, Adriel Denae, has been added to the Friday night Headline Stage lineup to perform her first solo set. She’ll appear along with Chisel and the full band of Wandering Sons, The Candles, Pete Remm and the Hillary Reynolds Band as part of a five-artist Headline event. The five artists for Saturday night’s Headline Stage event are Rodney Crowell, Justin Townes Earle, Nicole Atkins, Christopher Gold and Mel Flannery Trucking Co.

The music festival will feature performances at more than 40 venues in downtown Appleton. More band announcements are expected in the coming weeks.

Organizers are still waiting to announce new ticket information. Wednesday’s planned launch of VIP ticket sales has been delayed until the online ticket outlet has final details worked out. Willems said that should happen shortly. The VIP tickets will sell for $99.

Individual tickets for the headline and feature shows will cost $30 and $15, respectively, and are set to go on sale June 27.
