Tickets are on sale now for the third annual Pink Moon Festival.  Growing upon the success of the previous festivals, organizer Seth Abramson and crew have scheduled an amazing lineup of musicians, artisans and activities for music and art lovers of all genres.

The festival takes place on Abramson’s family farm. Festival goers will enjoy beautiful mountain views in a very intimate space with ancient oak trees shading the newly built Shangri-La Vending and Artist Village complete with instillation art, a brand new side stage and DJ booth, and a variety of activities and vendors including body painting for charity (all proceeds go to music and arts programs in Monroe County, WV’s public schools), massage therapy, exotic crafts vendors and a black light mini-golf course. Also $1 from every ticket purchased will go to The Rex Foundation.

Pink Moon Festival is a Rock Camp Production and is the final show in the company’s Glo-deo (giant glowing dragon puppet rodeo) tour in which large ensembles of puppeteers present spectacle performances at major music festivals across the country.

Performances this season include All Good Music Festival, Gathering of the Vibes, Elysian Fields, Camp Barefoot, and Pink Moon.  Previous performances include Phish 8 (w/Phish 3d movie spots), Bonnaroo, Langerado, 10,000 Lakes Festival, Disorient Times Square and a slew of themed events in NYC nightclubs with DJ’s including Paul Oakenfold, Tiesto, and many more.

The Pink Moon Festival is a tribute to festival organizer Seth Abramson’s mother Pinky, who passed away in an ATV accident in 2006. In between going to college and getting his Master’s degree, Seth spent a lot of time with his mother Pinky in Rock Camp. There they worked in the old general store and regularly hosted music events on the mountain. Pink Moon is an attempt to celebrate the traditions that Pinky pioneered in Rock Camp by honoring her life and sharing the love she left behind with as many people as possible.
