In addition to all the music, the v5: Electric Avenue installment of Rock n Roll Resort will also feature collaborative live art, a disc-golf tournament, a mini-golf tournament, workshops and theme nights.
“For Electric Avenue, I wanted to blend a few concepts together. There’s the ‘Road to the Resort’ competition for up-and-coming bands. There’s the indoor vending that will be fashioned as an electric avenue. And there’s our continued relationship with the creative folks at Magic Hat Brewing,” says Shannon Plaquet, producer of Rock n Roll Resort. “It’s going to be one of the most diversified line-ups of old school meets new school that we’ve ever had. We’ve dialed in pretty much everything in previous events, and this one should be the best event yet.”
Advance tickets are still available, priced at $80 for the whole weekend. Single-day tickets are $10 for tonight’s pre-party with the Werks at the Oasis Cafe in New Paltz; $50 each for Friday and Saturday.
