Snail Mail to Launch Music Festival in Her Hometown Next Year

Lindsey Jordan (a.k.a. Snail Mail) is bringing a five-day music festival to her hometown of Baltimore in February.

The festival will be called Valentine Fest and take place on five consecutive nights at the city’s Ottobar venue, starting on February 10, 2023 and concluding on Valentine’s Day. Snail Mail will perform each night, switching up the setlist each time, and has curated a secret lineup of guests. Although, the festival poster, drawn by Corrinne James, contains clues to some of the performers. Fans have already deduced the soccer balls in the image are most likely a reference to Soccer Mommy.

Lindsay Jordan told Variety in an exclusive, “We have some f---ing insane bands on there, one of them I’m pretty sure is getting back together just for this. The idea was to have a new band that we are friends with and admire as the first opener, a legend as the second and then Snail Mail. So the lineup would be the future, the past and the present.”

The shows – Jordan’s first in her hometown in four years – will return her to the venue where she launched the Snail Mail project in 2015. Jordan planned to inaugurate the festival this year but needed time to recover from vocal surgery.

Snail Mail’s latest album, Valentine, came out last year and she reportedly has started work on a follow-up. Jordan is set to appear in the A24 horror film I Saw the TV Glow alongside Phoebe Bridgers and Limp Bizkit's Fred Durst.

Tickets for Valentine Fest go on sale on Friday (Nov. 11) via
