FEST: Bands Announced for Second Annual Speed of Sound Festival

June 15th, 2016, 10:30 am by Greg

Sponsored by Woodstock radio station WDST-FM, the second annual Speed of Sound Festival will be taking over the Dutchess County Airport in Wappingers Falls on Sunday, August 7.

The one-day fest will be headlined by the Lumineers, and that’s good news indeed for Greater Nippertown fans of the band, whose other area tour-stop – last weekend at Brewery Ommegang in Cooperstown – had been sold out for weeks now.
