FULL ARTIST SCHEDULE ANNOUNCED FOR SEPTEMBER BENEFIT FEST

Life is good has announced the lineup for the 2011 Life is good Festival. Set to take place September 24-25 in Canton, MA, a suburb of Boston, the multi-faceted fundraiser combines world-class headliners and nationally known musical talent on three stages, including several of today's most popular children's performers. This one-of-a-kind festival aims to raise $1 million to benefit the Life is good Playmakers, the action arm of The Life is good Kids Foundation.

The two-day music and fundraising festival is hosted by Life is good, a Boston-based company that spreads the power of optimism through its colorful collection of apparel and accessories and through its social mission to help kids overcome life-threatening challenges. The annual event will make its return to historic and picturesque Prowse Farm at the foot of the Blue Hills, just minutes from Boston. Once again, Life is good has partnered with Superfly Presents, nationally-recognized producers of the iconic Bonnaroo and Outside Lands festivals.

Doors open each day at 11:00 a.m. and music begins at 11:45 a.m. Festival grounds close at 9:30 p.m.
