Gathering of the Vibes Set to Celebrate 20th Anniversary (Schedule)
The VibeTribe is anxiously awaiting the end of July, when Gathering of the Vibes will finally take place in Bridgeport, CT. for it’s 20th year.
The daily schedule has just been released in case you want to plan out your festival fun- a more organized option than just playing it by ear, which is also encouraged!
The 2015 lineup is an impressive one this summer, with a recent headliner addition of Warren Haynes set to lead an ultimate superjam titled Warren Haynes and the Seaside AllStars. The collaboration is set to honor the festival’s 20th year running, dubbed “The Vibes 20th Anniversary Spectacular”.
The Allman Brother’s Band /Govn’t Mule legend will be performing 2 sets- accompanied by notable artists in the jam scene including George Porter Jr. (The Meters), Branford Marsalis (Branford Marsalis Quartet), Joe Russo and Marco Benevento (The Menevento/Russo Duo), and Jackie Greene (The Black Crowes).
Other Vibes artist’s include The String Cheese Incident with special guests David Grisman and Peter Rowan, Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals, Weezer, The Gaslight Anthem, Lettuce, Kung Fu, Trevor Hall, Earphunk, and much more.
As a whole, Gathering of the Vibes will host nearly 50 bands on various stages throughout the 350-acre historic Seaside Park nested along the Long Island Sound. In addition to the music will be other activities for attendees such as food and craft vendors, Ferris Wheel rides, a Non-Profit Village, and shoreline strolls for those who enjoy those scenic, long walks on the beach. Kids and families are also welcome.
Tickets are available for the full weekend and include admission to the festival and onsite camping. Other ticket options are also available, like VIP packages (with added perks) and single-day passes.
