All tickets are available online at Connecticut residents, Bridgeport city employees and active members of the military are eligible for ticket discounts. 

"Although many Vibes veterans are local, we’re seeing our fan base expand beyond the tri state area more and more each year. People are traveling from DC, LA, Philadelphia and even other countries,” commented Gathering of the Vibes founder, Ken Hays

The 2013 artist lineup features two nights of Grateful Dead bassist Phil Lesh & Friends with John Scofield and John Medeski, Gov’t Mule, Tedeschi Trucks Band, The Black Crowes, Grace Potter and many more! Late night performances with members of LCD Soundsystem, Thievery Corporation, Papadosio, Kung Fu and the Silent Disco will keep fans going until the early morning.

In addition to live music from over forty bands, there’s an array of food & craft vendors, and even a Kid’s Corner & Teen Scene featuring everything from arts & crafts to dancing with life-sized puppets, and a photo booth. Kids can jam on professional equipment with Vibes musicians over at the School of Rock Stage, or check out the 85-foot Ferris wheel – Vibes is perfect for the entire family. There is even a ‘Non-profit Village’ that highlights local and national non-profit organizations from throughout the country.
