CHANGE: Jakob Dylan has cancelled his appearance, but Grace Potter & the Nocturnals have signed on in his slot.
Jam band faves (and former Nippertownians) moe. have moved their fest to a new location this year: Gelston Castle Estate in Mohawk, a quick, easy drive west just off the Thruway, which probably knocks off about an hour of driving time from their previous fest location in Turin.
There are two stages, so you won’t have to miss any of the music if you’ve got the stamina. The music kicks off at 5pm on Friday with the Macpodz on the Buzz Stage. Main Stage action begins at 6:50pm on Friday with Tortoise.
And moe. is slated to play at 11:15pm on Friday; 2:45pm, 10pm & 12midnight on Saturday; 8 & 10pm on Sunday.
So who else is playing?
Nas, Damian Marley
The Punch Brothers
Built to Spill
The Ryan Montbleau Band
Grace Potter & the Nocturnals
The Black Keys
Sister Sparrow & the Dirty Birds
Go here for the full schedule.
All-weekend tickets are $150 at the gate. (As in the past, the price of weekend tickets includes camping.) Single-day tickets are available for Sunday only at $60.
