It was great to learn that The Trey Anastasio Trio, as listed on the schedule, was actually playing as a quartet, given that Ray Paczkowski had just returned to his keyboard the night before, after recovering from a health issue. That may have been Trey’s first real interaction with the crowd, there before the encore, where he played two solo songs with his acoustic, including a lovely “Waste,” before bringing his bandmates back for a third together. I did love how he phrased it, the news about Ray being better, genuinely thrilled to share “some good news in what seems like a world of bad news.”

Levitate Music Festival has released the lineup by day for its sixth annual festival happening July 7th-8th, 2018. Join Trey Anastasio Band, The Head and the Heart, Slightly Stoopid, Rebelution, Lake Street Dive, Stick Figure and more over two days at the historic Marshfield Fairgrounds, just south of Boston.

The fifth year will see the festival running two days: Saturday, July 8th and Sunday, July 9th.

In what is endearingly called the “big little” festival, Levitate Music and Arts Festival donated over $18,000 to Boys and Girls Club of Marshfield this summer. With 10,000 attendees this year, LMF donated $1.25 per ticket sold, plus parking revenue. This is the fourth year that the festival partnered with the club and previous fundraising efforts helped to rebuild the town’s skate park.

Despite the pending rain, tickets for this year’s Levitate Music and Arts Festival (LMF) sold out a week prior to the festival. 10,000 music and art lovers came together on Saturday, July 9, 2016 to enjoy the mild weather and listen to an explosive line up.
