Gathering of the Vibes: Aug 17-20

My favorite Northeast jam-band fest, Gathering of the Vibes, is right around the corner. It begins next Friday, August 18, but ticketholders will start arriving on Thursday for early check-in and a surprise show that night. The fest, which takes place at Indian Lookout Country Club in Mariaville, NY, concludes on Sunday, August 20.

Here are the artists and bands scheduled to perform on two stages:

North Mississippi Allstars, Assembly of Dust, Deep Banana Blackout, Strangefolk, Martin Sexton, Tea Leaf Green, Juggling Suns, Rafter Bats, Ryan Montbleau Band, Scarecrow Collection

Bob Weir & Ratdog, Mickey Hart & Bill Kreutzmann's Rhythm Devils (with Mike Gordon & Steve Kimmock), Hot Tuna, New Riders of the Puprle Sage, G. Love & Special Sauce, Keller Williams, Zen Tricksters (with Donna Jean Godchaux-MacKay), David Gans, Everyone Orchestra, Chuch

Burning Spear, Yonder Mountain String Band, Rebirth Brass Band, Walter "Wolfman" Washington, Zero, Papa Mali

Wavy Gravy will emcee all three days.
