Until I arrived at this year’s Gathering of The Vibes Festival in Bridgeport, CT, I didn’t know I was looking for something. Until I left, I didn’t realize that I had found it. The following is a recounting of that journey. Along the way masters in the field of musical entertainment will appear. All were influential, some more than others. But as you read this recounting of GOTV 2010, remember that this is one man’s quest.
Gather your friends, beach chairs/blankets/towels and sunscreen because the schedule for the 13th annual Avalonfest is out. Avalon Resort hosts Avalonfest 2010 from Friday August 13th through Sunday August 15th. For those arriving early on Thursday evening August 12th there will be a special pre-fest bonus concert by Bill Danoff, of Starland Vocal Band and co-writer of “Country Roads”.
The dusty road leads to an unseen location. Clouds of dirt and earthy grime pass through the air. As the dust settles and the road becomes steeper, Horning’s Hideout comes into view. “Happy Horning’s,” comes a chipper voice from my right. My window is rolled down and I turn to see a girl standing on the side of the road. She wears a neon-green shirt that reads “Volunteer”.
“Where should I park?” I ask her.
“Just keep driving,” she says with a devious smile. “You’ll find the way.”
I grinned and waved and continued down the rocky hill.
With just four weeks until Colorado’s third annual Mile High Music Festival, today festival organizers announce the weekend’s performance schedule. Unveiled with the schedule is Mile High Music Festival’s brand new Beta Beach. Booked in partnership with Denver’s world-renowned Beta Night Club, the already diverse festival expands its musical terrain by now hosting an impressive list of Denver’s most cutting-edge DJs and electronic music including Second Sun, Halo and Hipp E, and Dragon.
British singer-songwriter Bobby Long returns to the road this summer for a combination of solo acoustic shows and a series of dates at which he will be backed by a band for the first time since arriving on American shores just over a year ago. Long, who has been working on his recording debut album backed by studio musicians, has been anxious to bring this new dynamic to his live appearances and is looking forward to giving his hauntingly personal songs added depth and dimension.
The fifteenth annual Gathering of the Vibes will begin next Thursday, July 29, at Seaside Park in Bridgeport, CT.
