Mountain Jam Adds New Headliner, Reveals Daily Schedule

March 22nd, 2016, 12:00 pm by Greg

San Francisco-based pop-rock hitmakers Train have been added to the line-up for the 2016 Mountain Jam, which takes place from Thursday-Sunday, June 2-5 at Hunter Mountain in Hunter. But don’t expect to hear “Drops of Jupiter” or “Save Me, San Francisco.” Instead, they’ll be playing the classic album Led Zeppelin II in its entirety.

Mountain Jam organizers have also revealed the day-by-day line-up for this year’s fest along with the option to buy single-day tickets to each day of the event – $49 for Thursday, June 2; $85 each for Friday & Saturday, June 3 & 4; $79 for Sunday, June 5 – in addition to four-day and three-day passes and VIP options.
