Gathering of the Vibes began in 1996 as a celebration of the life of Jerry Garcia, who died the previous August. Initially named Deadhead Heaven, the festival provided a forum for East Coast fans to remember the counterculture icon.  In each of its 11 years, Gathering of the Vibes has paired legendary artists with emerging acts to appeal to a wide cross-section of music fans.

Gathering of the Vibes advance tickets on sale now at GatheringoftheVibes.com.  Tickets are also available at many Northeast outlets, including Strawberries, Coconuts and select FYE locations.
