“We’ve put together a who’s who of Northeast musical talent without straying from our funk/jam roots,” explains promoter Tony Scavone, “while keeping up with the times to include the electro-fusion craze.”

The festival’s grounds are home to a 27-hole disc golf course that will play host to a number of tournaments throughout the weekend appealing to the enthusiasts as well as casual players.

In addition to the breadth of music and disc golf, there will also be flow arts workshops, interactive art throughout the grounds, daily yoga sessions and craft and art vendors.

A four-day, full-fest pass is now available for $170; a Friday-Sunday three-day pass is $150; and single-day passes for Friday, Saturday or Sunday are $60.
