In addition, Potter and Higher Ground announced the return of Grand Point Weird, a visual arts installation, Grand Point Local, featuring local restaurants and food products, and the REVERB Eco Village, supporting several Vermont non-profits.
Organizers also announced that the Skinny Pancake will host Official All Ages Festival After Parties featuring Session Americana on Saturday, September 16th at 11:00PM (tickets $10) and Annie in the Water on Sunday, September 17th at 10:00PM (free).
Grand Point Weird, the art installation on the festival grounds founded by Grace’s sister Charlotte, will feature performances and pieces based on the theme of levitation and defying gravity, curated for the first time by Lee Anderson, owner of local Burlington music venue Radio Bean. The project will include contributions from students at the Vermont Governor’s Institute for the Arts. “I’m honored to be taking the reins from the amazing Charlotte Potter this year,” said Anderson, “leading this fantastical circus of the absurd known as Grand Point Weird."
Grand Point Local will showcase some of Vermont’s best purveyors including A Maizing Kettle Corn, Scout & Co, Farmers & Foragers, Open Hearth, Pingala, Duino Duende, Shaker Maple, The Skinny Pancake, Southern Smoke, Bluebird BBQ, Miso Hungry, and Starbird. In addition, SILO Distillery will be serving hand crafted cocktails.
Grand Point North welcomes the return of the REVERB Eco Village. Founded in 2004 by environmentalist Lauren Sullivan and her husband Adam Gardner of Guster, REVERB creates sustainable practices across the music industry and will promote environmental awareness at the festival. REVERB will be joined on-site by CarShare Vermont, Lake Champlain Land Trust and Vermont Community Garden Network.
