Catskill Chill Music Festival has released the phase two line-up for the seventh annual event, which will take place September 23rd – 25th, 2016 at New Minglewood, a private summer camp in Lakewood, PA. Joining the bill in 2016 are legendary dealers of the funk George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic, live electronic super group and longtime Chillfam Electron, Thievery Corporation’s Rob Garza (DJ Set), nine-piece power funk orchestra Turkuaz, Americana-grass artists Cabinet and electronic music producer Space Jesus, along with several other diverse artists.
Continuing their tradition of offering a unique twist with returning artists, the Chill has announced a number of first-time collaborations and tribute sets. Dopapod and Turkuaz will join forces for Dopakuaz Does Yacht Rock, Pink Taking Fish and Kung Fu will take on the music of Prince and David Bowie, while Particle and The Werks come together as PartiWerks. The weekend will also feature a Chillfam Allstars Thriller Tribute.
For the first time ever, Catskill Chill will host an onsite pre-party at New Minglewood the night before the festival, on Thursday, September 22nd featuring two sets of Twiddle, along with Jimkata, Aqueous and TRAKSTAR. Tickets on sale now at www.CatskillChill.com.
These artists join the already announced lineup that includes Mike Gordon, Greensky Bluegrass, Keller Williams’ Grateful Grass, Break Science, Goldfish, Perpetual Groove, 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 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 at www.CatskillChill.com and Early Bird ticket price has been extended to Friday, June 10 at midnight EST.
