Disc Jam Music Festival Announces 2016 Lineup
Disc Jam Music Festival is returning for its 6th year to beautiful Stephentown, NY for another unforgettable weekend of complete bliss amongst the sun and sounds of the Berkshire Mountains.
Disc Jam embodies what is all aspects of a memorable music experience and is truly the best small-scale festival you will find in the Northeast, a statement backed by repeated returning festival-goers and musicians alike. Disc Jam will be showcasing solid rockin’ returning bands such as Dopapod, Kung Fu, Consider the Source, Pink Talking Fish, The Hornitz, Formula 5, The Jauntee, Teddy Midnight, Strange Machines, lespecial, Mister F, Honey Comb and Wobblesauce. Gubbilidis will be gracing the stage with their presence, featuring members of Twiddle performing unique takes on their tunes with frendly surprise guest appearances. Electron (members of the Disco Biscuits, Lotus, and JRAD) will be back as well as Spiritual Rez and Soule Monde. This family of friends is true to its Northeast bands and has been growing with them for years but is eclectic and ever changing enough to give you a taste of something new and exciting every year. Nothing can stop the power of these tantalizing tenacious performers!
Disc Jam covers all musical bases with a wooded late night stage this year along with two main stages that will show off new additions to the musical family with impressive acts such as Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, TAUK, Govinda, and Vibe Street. First timers for Disc Jam include Cappadonna (Wu Tang Clan), Congo Sanchez (featuring Jeff Franca of Thievery Corporation), El Dub, Manifested, LITZ, and Chromatropic among others. In addition to the mind-blowing musical talent at this year’s Disc Jam, there will be some creative activities added for all to enjoy. A foam dome will be on site for some memorable soapy dance parties as well as a large theme game tent with a dunk tank, carnival games, and a pool table among other silly yet enjoyable amusements. As always there will be a vast variety of activities and daily yoga with some surprise interactive art amidst the festival grounds.
“I feel this year’s line up is by far our best yet. We pride ourselves on the quality of music we put out each year which has gained Disc Jam the reputation of being one of the more sought after “little” festivals to play in the Northeast,” said Tony Scavone, owner of Disc Jam Presents. “We really are blessed to be at Gardner’s Farm in Stephentown NY once again. From the VIP campsites located inside the backstage areas to the freshly mowed lawn that the community campground is set, you are surrounded by nature and picturesque views. The layout of this venue is truly something special and makes for a perfect setting for Disc Jam.”
This year the Woods stage and camping will be expanding into the forest with the usual car camping available. Disc Jam attendees are always within earshot of the funky sounds of the main stages and have the freedom to roam the beautiful event or play some disc golf on the 18 hole wooded course.
This year’s VIP experience will include hotel rooms and shuttles to and from the show, as well as wireless headphones with sets streamed live via the soundboard feed for a truly unique listening experience. Staying true to the festival’s name and roots, Disc Golf Tournaments for men and women with prizes from Innova and Vibram Disc Golf will be held during the weekend. For Disc Golf enthusiasts, this annual feature of the festival is not to be missed!
Disc Jam embraces a small festival vibe while drawing larger bands from New York and across New England. The 6th annual Disc Jam once again features an incredible lineup of musicians and artists ready to celebrate the best the Northeast’s diverse and thriving live music scene has to offer. With side by side main stages decked out in beautiful decor and professional sound and lights, Disc Jam delivers non-stop music from early in the day until well into the night.
Disc Jam Music Festival continues to develop and grow their musical family and bring back the music close to their hearts and constantly introducing attendees to new and upcoming artists from across the Northeast. Disc Jam has a serious history of creating everlasting magical memories and staying consistent with an absolute extraordinary lineup and talent.
