Music festivals are to live music what climbing Mt. Everest is for mountaineering: when done right both can be a truly life-changing, once in a lifetime event.
PETZOO! has grown from a tiny east-coast weekend gathering of like minded music lovers into an annual festival packed with familiar faces. The intimate setting is reminiscent of early "feel good" festivals and community of the Haight-Ashbury days. A stage where The Heavy Pets and friends can pick up the vibe of the audience and catapult all into a superlative flight of unencumbered groove. There are no multiple stages to navigate and the amphitheater insures that every seat, is a great one.
With advance weekend passes including camping at only $50, the third annual PetZoo! represents true value for music fan's hard earned dollars during these trying economic times.
This years headliners: The Heavy Pets continue their "Drenched Tour" supporting the release of their most recent widely acclaimed self titled album. John Brown's Body "is an eight piece outfit that delivers some of the most forward thinking reggae music in the world today." LA2DAY Toubab Krewe has set "a new standard for fusions of rock 'n' roll and West African music" (Afropop Worldwide).
Rounding out the lineup is a hand selected group of festival favorite improv friendly bands from around the United States including fusion funk rockers U-Melt, the tyrannosaurean rock riffage of The London Souls, The Brew, Cabinet, Turtle Soup, Newton Crosby, Bearin' Peace, The Pineland Medicine Band, Long Miles, Spontaneous Underground, and DJ Tony D.
PetZoo! 2010 takes place August 6th & 7th at Priedaine, located in Freehold, NJ very close in proximity to New York and Philadelphia metro areas. Priedaine is a cultural event facility owned by the New Jersey Latvian Society. The intimate festival grounds feature full concessions, amphitheater seating, and ample space for camping.
