Catskill Chill Music Festival has released the initial lineup for the seventh annual event, which will take place September 23rd – 25th, 2016 at New Minglewood, a private summer camp in Lakewood, PA. Headlining Catskill Chill Music Festival is Phish bassist Mike Gordon featuring musicians Robert Walter, Scott Murawski, John Kimock and Craig Myers.
Playing the Chill for their first time is groundbreaking Americana quartet Greensky Bluegrass, while Renaissance man Keller Williams makes his first return to the Chill since the inaugural year with his project Keller Williams’ Grateful Grass, performing not-so-traditional bluegrass versions of Grateful Dead favorites. Electronic/funk duo Break Science will do double duty with a live band set featuring several members of Lettuce, and a duo set. Also joining the lineup is innovative prog dance-rock four-piece Dopapod, South African live electronic duo Goldfish, and Athens’ rock band Perpetual Groove, along with Deep Banana Blackout, Kung Fu, The Werks, Particle, Zach Deputy, Ryan Montbleau, Orgone, The Nth Power, The Main Squeeze, Pink Talking Fish, TAUK, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, Roosevelt Collier’s NY Get Down, Tom Hamilton’s American Babies, The Heavy Pets Tribute to the ‘80s and many more.
One of the defining characteristics of Catskill Chill Music Festival is its unique setting. Hosted at New Minglewood, a private summer camp in Lakewood, PA, the venue has cabins for rent (yes, there are still some cabins available!), paved pathways throughout, a beautiful lakefront, covered stage facilities, free parking, and free camping. Additional highlights of New Minglewood include indoor movie theaters, indoor and outdoor spaces for yoga, art, and wellness workshops, an easy-to-traverse campus, and “closer than ever” parking. While the “B Stage” and Club Chill will remain covered venues, this will mark the first year that the Chill will present an outdoor main stage for attendees to enjoy music in the open air, under the stars. The festival also offers a farmer’s market, craft and food vendors, a communal bonfire nightly, and an open mic. Tickets and cabins are currently on sale now.
