The Come Up Festival
This summer seems to be the start of many small-scale electronic music festivals in the northeast. While larger festivals such as Camp Bisco, Mountain Jam, and Catskill Chill provide festival goers with nationwide and worldwide touring acts, these small festivals provide an experience that is not only more intimate, but also a lot lighter on the wallet. Amongst these promising festivals, is The Come Up, located in Roxbury, NY at the Plattekill Mountain, taking place this weekend, June 22-24.
The Come Up features a long list of both local and national acts including: Alpha Data, Higher Organix, The Cyborg Trio, The Alchemystics, Jeff Bujak, Leave It On Stage, Dirty Paris, Digital Dharma, and many more. The location includes 3 stages, a hilltop camping area, a bar/lounge, a ski lift over the main stage, and for only $65, this seems like the perfect place to be this weekend! Not only will your ears be stimulated by the variety of music, but your eyes will be glued to the endless amounts of visual stimulation the festival has to offer: Visual’s by Drew Suto (seen at Uphoria Festival), go-go dancers and LED hoopers from Peep This, and the Eternal Lotus Fire Collective.
