Dave Matthews Band said they were going to take the year off from touring, but nobody said the band wouldn't be playing live.

It looks like DMB will stage four "mini-festivals" billed as the Dave Matthews Band Caravan this year, as announced on the band's Warehouse fan site.

A statement from the band obtained by Billboard.biz says, "2011 is our 20th anniversary as a band and we want to celebrate by playing music together.  While we are still taking the year off from touring, we have decided to plan four multi-day, multi-artist music events that will take place this summer.  We will be sending out save the date emails and announcing more information soon but we wanted to share the news with our fans first."

As reported on Billboard.biz last month, Dave Matthews Band will stage four regional destination festivals this summer under the Dave Matth Field, former site of the Atlantic City (New Jersey) Municipal Airport, the band announced this morning.

While DMB fans have known such an announcement was coming, they may be surprised at the size and scope of these events, as the the event is a full-blown festival, at least in terms of talent. In addition to DMB, the Atlantic City lineup includes David Gray, Ray LaMontagne, the Flaming Lips, O.A.R., Damian Marley, Bassnectar, Dr. Dog, Amos Lee, Thievery Corporation, Michael Franti and Spearhead, Warren Haynes Band, Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, Guster, Lotus, Rebelution, Fitz and the Tantrums, Carolina Chocolate Drops, Lisa Hannigan, Punch Brothers, From Good Homes, Delta Spirit, Big Gigantic, Alberta Cross, Mariachi El Bronx, TR3, Vusi Mahlasela, the Budos Band and Bobby Long, and special performances by DMB members Carter Beauford and Stefan Lessard, plus a Dave Matthews & Tim Reynolds acoustic set.  The festival weekend will also include a number of late-night shows at Atlantic City venues.

DMB is the top-grossing band in the world for the period 2000-2009 according to Billboard Boxscore, and grossed more than $62 million and drew more than a million fans last year, so taking a year off the road is no small matter. Dave Matthews vaguely alluded that DMB might jam together this year in an interview with Billboard last December. "Next year, although we're not going to hop on the same train of buses and drive around North America, I have no doubt we're going to get together, whether it's in front of people or whether it's in some room somewhere, and make music together, because this is my second family," he said.

Looks like it will be in front of people...lots of people.
