After taking a year’s hiatus in 2012, the Big Up is back with a new festival location and the the first round of band announcements for 2013.
Last held at Sunnyview Faym in Ghent in 2011, the Big Up will be landing at the Hemlock Hollow Farm in Claverack, on August 8-10. The new venue has three times as much woods camping as in years past.
Early bird weekend tickets – or as the Big Upsters call ’em, “Far Out” tickets – are now available in limited quantities for $95.
Here’s the initial round of bands for the 2013 Big Up festival:
Abakus live band (world premiere)
Chris Keating DJ set (Yeasayer)
Jojo Mayer & Nerve
