The first press conference of this year’s Harvest Fest opened with Samantha Fish and finished with Yonder Mountain String Band. While I was super excited to see Yonder and learn about everything new for them and the band, I admit that I wasn’t very familiar with the other musicians before this year’s festival.
Art and Music Festival The Mad Tea Party Jam, presented by Appalachian Jamwich, announces its return in 2015, taking place June 18th-21st. This marks its fourth year and annual celebration of love, art, and music in the beautiful mountains of Hedgesville, WV. It returns to the original venue of Ashton Farms, also known as "The Bavarian Villa," named for the red-roofed German style home situated on the romantic property.

The festival will be returning to the Carson Creek Ranch for a second straight year, offering expanded camping options and enhanced amenities. Attracting groundbreaking talent, some of music's biggest artists have turned Euphoria into one of the leading electronic/rock music festivals in Texas and throughout the Southwest.
You know how our dads will turn us green with envy while casually mentioning seeing The Wailers or Led Zeppelin live? Nope? That’s just mine? Well the disappointment and jealous expressions on my future children’s faces was what was playing and re-playing through my mind on Sunday night as Pearl Jam took the stage.
Phantogram’s first song at their 5:00 slot on ACL’s Miller Lite stage was none other than the first song off their new album Voices, dropped earlier this year. The time slot had to fight with simultaneous performances from Jenny Lewis and Chromeo, but looking at the crowd you wouldn’t have known.
Seeing Interpol live has long since been at the top of my bucket list. It’s not that I would ever claim to be among the longest or greatest fans, it’s just that they’ve been around forever (to someone born in 1989, being a band since 1997 IS forever!) and I’ve built such a huge reverence for the collection of music, and very specific sound, they’ve cultivated and stayed true to.
