Dave Matthews Band will bring "Dave Matthews Band Caravan" to four US locales this summer. The series of three-day festivals will feature a diverse array of musical talent performing on three stages during the day. As headliners, Dave Matthews Band will perform a full set each night. The band is taking the year off from touring, so these will be its only performances this year. Gotta love DMB, since they say they are taking a year off from touring, yet they have a few incredibly cool tour dates. With DMB, it's a lifestyle.
