Is it me or are festivals releasing dates earlier than ever? As I am writing this, Mountain Jam is 199 days, 13 hours and 54 minutes away. They have not only released their dates but also artists, including headliners.
The first headliners of the 2017 Hunter Mountain Festival are no other than Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers,
and Steve Miller Band. I can almost hear “Mary Jane’s Last Dance” echoing off the Catskills right at this very moment. Other artists announced include The Strumbellas, Gary Clark Jr., Peter Frampton, The Revivalists, Elephant Revival, and River Whyless with more still to be announced.
After experiencing the family-esque vibes at Mountain Jam last year, I can’t see myself being anywhere else June 16-18, 2017. You can purchase your tickets here.
If you are looking for off-site camping, I stayed at the North-South Campground last year. Not much cell service in the woods there to get your taxi to the festival but what do you expect! Overall had a good, rainy and cost effective stay!
Hope to see all you jammers there!
