Yeah, it sure feels like winter out there right now, but looking over the freshly announced line-up of bands for the Mountain Jam festival in June is sure to be enough to warm you up for bit.
The seventh annual Mountain Jam festival rolls into Hunter Mountain in Hunter, expanding to a four-day event which will take place from Thursday-Sunday, June 2-5. The festival will also be offering camping this year.
And the initial roster of bands that are scheduled to perform was announced today.
So who’s coming?
Since guitarslinger Warren Haynes is one of the festival’s driving forces, it’s no surprise that Gov’t Mule is returning (headlining on June 4), but the Warren Haynes Band will be playing as well, (headlining on June 3).
And My Morning Jacket is returning to headline the closing day of the fest, June 5.
But there’s more – much more. Also on tap for Mountain Jam VII are:
Michael Franti & Spearhead
The Avett Brothers
Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros
Bela Fleck & the Flecktones
Electric Hot Tuna
North Mississippi Allstars
The New Deal
Portugal. The Man
The Preservation Hall Jazz Band
