FEST: Adirondack Independence Music Fest in Lake George This Weekend

August 28th, 2017, 12:00 pm by Greg

The third annual Adirondack Independence Music Festival takes over Wood Park in Lake George this weekend. Twiddle and Pink Talking Fish will headline the two-day, Labor Day weekend bash featuring non-stop music from 1-11pm on Saturday & Sunday (September 2 & 3), with two stages and a dozen bands.

And the party will continue into the wee hours of the night, as the fest shifts over to the late-night rage stage at King Neptune’s Pub at 11pm on both nights. Admission to the pub is included with the festival ticket price.

In addition to lots of great music, a variety of food, beverage and craft vendors will be on hand, and there will be an adult obstacle course to burn off all that extra energy.

Advance tickets are on sale now, priced at $35 for single day tickets and $60 for the weekend. VIP tickets and camping are also available.

And if that’s not enough, the big Lake George weekend will kick off with a free pre-fest show in Shepard Park at 4pm on Friday (September 1), featuring Out on the Tiles, the Beau Sasser Trio and Bella’s Bartok.
