Just Announced: Initial Lineup for the Seventh Annual Catskill Chill Music Festival Lakewood, PA | September 23 – 25, 2016

Catskill Chill Music Festival has released the initial lineup for the seventh annual event, which will take place September 23rd – 25th, 2016 at New Minglewood, a private summer camp in Lakewood, PA. Headlining Catskill Chill is Phish bassist Mike Gordon featuring musicians Robert Walter, Scott Murawski, John Kimock and Craig Myers.

Playing the Chill for their first time is groundbreaking Americana quartet Greensky Bluegrass, while Renaissance man Keller Williams makes his first return to the Chill since the inaugural year with his project Keller Williams’ Grateful Grass, performing not-so-traditional bluegrass versions of Grateful Dead favorites. Electronic/funk duo Break Science will do double duty with a live band set featuring several members of Lettuce, and a duo set. Also joining the lineup is innovative prog dance-rock four-piece Dopapod, South African live electronic duo Goldfish, and Athens’ rock band Perpetual Groove, along with Deep Banana Blackout, Kung Fu, The Werks, Particle, Zach Deputy, Ryan Montbleau, Orgone, The Nth Power, The Main Squeeze, Pink Talking Fish, TAUK, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, Roosevelt Collier’s NY Get Down, Tom Hamilton’s American Babies, The Heavy Pets Tribute to the ‘80s and many more.

One of the defining characteristics of Catskill Chill is its unique setting. Hosted at New Minglewood, a private summer camp in Lakewood, PA, the venue has cabins for rent (yes, there are still some cabins available!), paved pathways throughout, a beautiful lakefront, covered stage facilities, free parking, and free camping. Additional highlights of New Minglewood include indoor movie theaters, indoor and outdoor spaces for yoga, art, and wellness workshops, an easy-to-traverse campus, and “closer than ever” parking. While the “B Stage” and Club Chill will remain covered venues, this will mark the first year that the Chill will present an outdoor main stage for attendees to enjoy music in the open air, under the stars. The festival also offers a farmer’s market, craft and food vendors, a communal bonfire nightly, and an open mic.

Tickets and cabins are currently on sale at www.CatskillChill.com.

Jambase’s 2012 Catskill Chill Festival Review

Words by: Jeanne Bettencourt | Images by: Vernon Webb and Nicholas Fitanides

“Camp Minglewood served weathered festival attendees and music enthusiasts well at the third annual Catskill Chill Music Festival in Hancock, NY this past September 7–9. The picturesque campgrounds (also the set for films Dirty Dancing and Jason) was aside a gorgeous lake and tucked away in the mountains in southern New York, providing an excellent backdrop to enjoy one last summer party. And what a party it was – it was evident that 99% of those in attendance were seasoned vets in the party business, and the size and exclusive feeling the festival radiated were only a few of its wonderful qualities. The best part about the size of the festival is that the event reached capacity this year (doubling in size each year since 2010) so the festival cannot get any bigger next year.”
