It’s the second annual Rock the Resort festival at the Hudson Valley Resort and Spa in Kerhonkson, and it’s jam-packed with three days of jam bands, funk, rock, hip-hop, jazz and more. The fest takes place on Friday-Sunday, April 9-11, and don’t expect to get much sleep ’cause the music rumbles along all night long.

The fest is indoors on two stages featuring such headliners as Soulive, KRS-One, New Riders of the Purple Sage, Particle and Jim Weider’s Project Percolator, to name just a few.
