A limited number of Early Bird two-day passes and VIP tickets go on sale this Thursday, March 8th at 11:00AM.

Marking the eighth year of the festival, Grand Point North will feature a lineup personally curated by Potter. “One of my highlights of every year is putting together the line-up for Grand Point North.  It’s an opportunity to bring together national acts that I have worked with and admired along with emerging local and regional bands, many of whom end up being the highlight of the festival,” said Potter, who will return as a featured headliner for the festival.  “And once again, we’ll be featuring some of the best locally sourced food and craft beverages, as well as the unique art installations that make up Grand Point Weird. It's a great honor to have the opportunity to share this rare slice of Vermont life with the world. I can't wait to join you all in celebration of music, food & art this coming September!"

Past performers at Grand Point North include The Avett Brothers, Old Crow Medicine Show, The Flaming Lips, Guster, Fitz & The Tantrums, Trey Anastasio Band and many more. The full lineup for this year’s festival will be announced later this spring.
