Warren Hellman, the generous bankroller behind Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, is financing a pretty incredible lineup once again. It was announced today that none other than Robert Plant will be headlining the free October festival. Sadly, Plant's apperance won't be for a Led Zeppelin day in the park, but fans of his disc with Alison Krauss (and featuring T Bone Burnett) will be happy to know they're all playing together at HSB this year. Other big names just announced:Louden Wainwright III, Gogol Bordello, Hazel Dickens, Bonnie Prince Billy, and more. The event goes down Oct. 3-5. Hit up Hardly Strictly website for all the details so far. It's going to be a crazy festival summer in San Francisco once again. -- Jennifer Maerz
