After three years at the former St. Joseph’s Church in Albany, the Restoration Festival is moving across the Hudson, the two-day festival finding a new home at the Contemporary Artists Center at Woodside, a former church in Troy. The fest will be held on Friday & Saturday, September 6 & 7.

All-festival passes for the two-day music festival are $32.50 and are currently available online. And new ticket option is also available this year – a VIP backstage pass for $150. Friday-only tickets are $15 in advance; Saturday-only tickets are $27.50 in advance. Children under age 14 are free.

Until now, only the Saturday night headliner – Philadelphia’s experimental alt-rockers Man Man – had been announced. But with less than three weeks to the fest, organizers have finally announced the rest of the bands to complete the line-up – 19 bands total plus on-site after-parties both nights.

So here it is – the new slate of bands for Rest Fest 2013:
