The lineup for the 2014 Dallas edition of the Untapped Music & Beer festival is unveiled today, and you read it here first: The headliner is Sacramento rock band Cake.

Supporting acts on the bill will include Shovels & Rope, Deltron 3030, Polyphonic Spree, Cayucas, Metz and Jamestown Revival, with more bands to be announced soon.

The location has also been revealed: Gilley's Dallas. The festival takes place on November 1. Pre-sale tickets are available now through Prekindle.

Untapped began in 2012 as a small festival celebrating craft beer, with a side of local music. The first festival was in September 2012, and took place on a patch of land in West Dallas, not far from what is now Trinity Groves. The most recent event took place in March in Fort Worth.
 
It has grown along with the local craft beer movement to a degree that it became an appealing acquisition for the Dallas Morning News; CrowdSource, the DMN's event marketing arm, acquired it in June.
 
With a headliner as big as Cake, this year's lineup would seem to show an increased emphasis on the music side of the event, although beer will be well-represented, with more than 70 breweries doling out samples of over 200 beers.
 
Ticket prices range from $30 for just the music only; $36 for concert plus beer; and $59 for VIP which guarantees early entry and access to limited-quantity beers. Those are pre-sale prices, so you'll want to grab your tickets now before they shoot up to normal prices on July 22.
