STEPHENTOWN — Disc Jam Music Festival recently announced the initial lineup for its 8th annual festival from Thursday, June 7 to Sunday, June 10, at Gardner’s Farm
Just minutes from the Massachusetts border, the music-filled weekend will showcase more than 80 artists, including some of the best jam and electronica bands in the region. It also features disc golf tournaments, Flow Tribe dancers, craft vending, yoga workshops and more.
Tickets are on sale at discjammusicfestival.com.
The 2018 artist lineup includes a heavy dose of national and regional funk and jam artists, including some collaboratives and side projects.
“We’ve spent the entire off-season trying to come up with a festival experience that could one-up the magic we conjured last year,” said Tony Scavone, owner and founder of the festival. “I think what we have in store for 2018 will set the bar so high for next year, I’m already getting nervous thinking about how we’ll top this in 2019.”
In its fourth year at Gardner’s Farm since moving from Massachusetts, the festival owner said he believes he has found a venue that feels like home.
“I truly believe that we have been blessed with the perfect festival grounds,” said Scavone, “beautiful grass beneath our feet, surrounded by rolling hills with picturesque views in all directions.”
As implied, Disc Jam features the fast-growing sport of disc golf. The festival grounds hold a 27-hole disc golf course. Disc golf tournaments for men and women are held throughout the weekend, with cash and prizes from Innova Disc Golf going to the top finishers. Playing at least a round is a must for Disc Jam enthusiasts and the course encourages both the avid and first-time players to try their hand on the course, all at no additional cost to play (outside of tournaments) with discs provided free of charge for those interested in playing.
Going in style is easy as VIP packages include options for either hotel or condo style rooms at the beautiful Jiminy Peak Ski resort just five minutes from the venue. On top of the off-site accommodations, the event offers VIP camping areas and a VIP lounge sponsored by Lagunitas Brewing Company, which includes complimentary beer to anyone 21 years or older.
