Dark Star Orchestra and All Good Presents announce today the lineup for the fifth annual Dark Star Jubilee, held on May 27-29 at the hallowed and historic grounds of Legend Valley – just 30 minutes east of Columbus.

Plus a wide variety of workshops, musical collaborations, roaming crowd performers, fire spinners, group activities and much more

Attendees can camp within the concert bowl, a few hundred feet from the stage, making the experience that much more up close and personal. The Erie Reader summed up the Jubilee experience well with this passage from its event review: 

"Along with that certain electricity in the air that comes at the front of every good, long outdoor music fest, some of the first things I encountered when arriving on the Valley's grounds last weekend were a noticeable lack of hassles, a noticeable abundance of playful little kids, and a whole lot of friendly Deadheads – all there to share in the getting-down."
Dark Star Jubilee tickets are available now through January 18th for the  pre-sale rate of $110 ($60 off gate price) for a 3-day GA festival pass and the 'Good Lovin' VIP pre-sale rate of $220 ($75 off gate price).
