When the festival organizers announced the first round of bands for the inaugural Hudson Music Project in Saugerties, it was April 1, and more than a few folks thought it was just another April Fools prank. I mean, really, the Flaming Lips, Kendrick Lamar, Modest Mouse, Bassnectar, Big Gigantic, Moby, ZZ Ward, Atmosphere, STS9, Matt & Kim and so many others all playing together at the Winston Farm, where the Woodstock ’94 fest – the Woodstock reunion that didn’t burn to the ground – was held 20 years ago?
Yeah, that almost sounded too good to be true. But it wasn’t…
And now, nearly two months later, the fest has announced the second (and final) round of bands who will be filling in the line-up over the course of the three-day fest, which runs from Friday-Sunday, July 11-13.
Here’s the roster of new bands just added to the festival’s bill:
Action Bronson (yeah, well, after two back-to-back cancellations at the Upstate Concert Hall, I won’t believe this until I see it)
Three-day tickets are currently $199; $229 with camping. And lots of VIP, VIP Platinum, Glamping and other upgrades are also available.
