Catskill Chill: Till the Morning Comes
With just days until Catskill Chill 2013, we are happily anticipating another fantastic year of great musical performances. Catskill Chill is a festival gem of the northeast, nestled in the Woods of Hancock, NY. The area offers substantial green forests and rolling country. Catskill Chill is a beautiful New York summer camp, turned music festival; it doesn’t get much better than this.
Music is the common bond at Catskill Chill. Everyone at the Chill has a true love of music, from the artists, organizers, right to each festival-goer. With such an inviting atmosphere you’re almost assured to have an awesome time. There is plenty of sound to go around at the Chill and multiple stages are comfortable for all viewing performances. The concept seems beautifully simple, music, lighting, and flat dancing surfaces, all tucked away under a roof. Forget about the weather and just make sure your having a good time. Year after year Catskill Chill brings back top artists, jam/tronica, funk to rock, reggae, straight DJ and everything in between. Every year you can expect to be amazed, offering up back to back sets and a true late night; music till morning. This year will be no exception, prepare for Particle, Jimkata, Lotus, Alan Evans Trio, Lettuce, Orchard Lounge, and Kung Fu on just the first day of the festival. Saturday’s schedule delivers the goods as well, with a stacked lineup all-day long, then into a night of: Headtronics, Conspirator, Brothers Past, and RAQ. Just when most festivals turn it down Sunday, the Chill goes hard right until the end, with serious late night sound. Some of the most anticipated sets of the week Dopapod, Papadosio, and hybid super group Dopadosio will close out Chill this year, that closer is spot on. Catskill Chill offers truly intimate performances every year, come see for yourself, as sound pours out into Camp Minglewood.
From the moment you arrive, you will feel the vibes, and your troubles will drift away. The Chill is a perfect size, and it offers a big festival lineup paired with a more intimate experience. The festival layout is lovely and extends from a lake and stages in the center of the property. A road makes a complete circle around the lake, with ample parking and shuttles to and from camp. Accommodations for camping are the best, an assortment of cabins criss – cross the hills on the property, leaving plenty of elbowroom for tent camping, hammocks and vending. The cabins are great for groups of people, and offer an unforgettable weekend with human comforts. Paved walkways snake and turn leading to the stages and the heart of Catskill Chill.
There are enough people for the true festival vibe, but there is never a crowded feel, quality experience right here. Great music, great people, in an off the charts atmosphere, all coming together for the love of music, that is why we come back to Catskill Chill.
An amazing festival weekend is just around the corner, and we are so happy just thinking about it. So buy your tickets before its too late. Get ready to see old friends and meet new ones. Get ready to listen to great live music, get ready to dance. If you love to dance till the sun comes up, the Chill is the place to be. Pack your toothbrush and a smile, and usher in the end of summer in style at Catskill Chill, you’ll be glad you did.
