The Northlands Music and Arts Festival kicked off the third rendition of this incredibly fun and chill festival dedicated to the jam-rock scene on June 13, 2024. The event is held at the Cheshire Fairgrounds in Swanzey, NH, located in southern New Hampshire near the Vermont border.

The first night only utilized the Switchback Camp Stage but delivered just as much heat with the Brass Queens and Annie in the Water during the daylight hours. Jamtronica specialists Space Bacon threw down a greasy set of techno-inspired tunes during the first part of the silent disco. Doey Joey continued the silent disco with some tasty remixes and sent the fans off into the night with a huge smile. He also passed out pizza to those who were lucky enough to grab a slice.

Today's lineup is nothing less than stacked, at least for jam band fans, including the Magic Beans, Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad, Big Something, Spafford, Sierra Hull, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, and two sets of Goose. Three stages are in play today. New York City's Escaper will close out tonight with their take on a silent disco.
