FEST: Electric Love Fest This Week in Lake George
OK, here’s the thing: The Electric Love Fest is really three different events taking place on three consecutive days in Lake George this week.
It all gets started with the Electric Love Bang kicks things off on Thursday evening (August 20) at Wood Park with Sublime tribute band Badfish headlining the festivities. Also on stage on Thursday will be Local 518 faves Mirk and Conehead Buddha. Gates open at 4pm, and the music runs from 5-9:30pm, capping things off with a fireworks display at 9:30pm. Tickets are $15 in advance; $20 at the gate.
On Friday (August 21), it’s the Electric Love Boat, a sunset cruise/concert with Peter Prince & Moon Boot Lover around Lake George aboard the Adirondac. Boarding begins at 6pm with an open bar til 7pm. Tickets are $40.
Then on Saturday (August 22) the full-blown Electric Love Festival takes over Wood Park in Lake George with a full day of outdoor music beginning at 12noon. Gates open at 11am. Tickets are $35 (which also includes admission to Thursday’s Electric Love Bang). It’s an all-ages fest, and children age 12 & under are free with paid adult ticket.
