The 2011 festival season is heating up. In recent days, headliners and side stage acts have been unveiled for several U.S. music extravaganzas booked for later in the year.

This week’s five lineup announcements run the gamut from time-tested festivals to relative newcomers, with artist bills of all genres and sizes. Booked into the months of September and October, all can expect to see stiff competition for festival-goers’ dollars, particularly from the season’s established marquee events: Austin City Limits Music Festival (September 16-18), and CMJ Music Marathon (October 18-22).

Two of the programs — DeLuna Festival and Moogfest — are only in their second year of operation and remain relatively untested as far as U.S. festival brands go. Meanwhile, a more established name, Langerado, is returning to the scene after two years of hiatus due to sluggish ticket sales and an ambivalent market.

First up on the calendar is the Bumbershoot Music & Arts Festival, founded in the 1970s and scheduled for Labor Day Weekend this year. Bumbershoot 2011 will run September 3-5 at the Seattle Center in Seattle, WA, with Ray LaMontagne, Wiz Khalifa and Hall & Oates headlining the respective days. (Full daily lineup information is available below.)

Advance tickets are now available for Bumbershoot, with single-day tickets running $35, three-day passes marked at $90, and VIP passes running from $125 up to $475. Single-day tickets will also be available at the festival gates, but with a slightly higher price tag ($45).

Founded in 2003, Langerado Music Festival is back on the market in 2011 after it was cancelled in 2009 due to slow ticket sales and took a hiatus in 2010 to regroup. The return is set for October 8-9 at Markham Park in Sunrise, FL.

Just over 30 bands have been marked for the 2011 lineup, with top-billed acts including Death Cab For Cutie, Trey Anastasio and Ben Harper (more below). Advance two-day passes for Langerado have a $150 face value, which will increase to $180 once the initial allotment is sold.

DeLuna Fest enters its second year over the October 13-16 weekend at Casino Beach in Pensacola, FL. Despite its status as a relative newcomer, DeLuna has secured big-name headliners in Weezer, Jane’s Addiction and Big Boi. Organizers haven’t nailed down a daily schedule, but other confirmed acts include Matt and Kim, Cold War Kids, Wanda Jackson and Bettye LaVette. (The detailed lineup is below.)

Advance tickets to DeLuna are now available for $149.95, which includes general admission passes for the October 14-16 weekend. Admission to the October 13 kick-off party is VIP only, with those passes set at $800.

Now in its 13th year, the popular Voodoo Experience returns to City Park in New Orleans, LA, for another Halloween weekend. Rather than rolling out a multi-act billing, the October 28-30 event chose to keep its first lineup revelation of the season brief, confirming only Soundgarden as a 2011 headliner. Organizers promise to name more appearing acts soon, and past years’ lineups have typically exceeded 100 performers.

Advance sales for Voodoo are currently in effect, with prices set at $125 for three-day general admission passes, and VIP tickets marked at $375. The special sale prices are in effect only through June 8, with higher prices taking effect thereafter.

The two-year-old Moogfest rounds out the list, coinciding with Voodoo over the October 28-30 weekend and taking shape at various venues throughout downtown Asheville, NC. The Flaming Lips will lead the electronic festival, which celebrates the late Asheville-based inventor Bob Moog. Other acts will include Passion Pit, Chromeo and Umphrey’s McGee, with a lengthier lineup listed below.

Moog’s general admission weekend passes go on sale June 4 and are split over three pricing tiers. A an initial allotment of ducats will be priced at $149.50, with the next allotment then available for $184.50. Once the initial ticket batches are sold, a final batch of GA tickets will be sold for $199.50. VIP passes will carry a $379.50 face value.
