Lake George NY Hosts Cool Jams on Labor Day Weekend at the Adirondack Independence Music Festival
There’s still time to escape the summer heat and head to the mountains this Labor Day weekend to revel in cool mountain air and even cooler jams at the 2019 Adirondack Independence Music Festival. On Saturday August 31, and Sunday, September 1, some of the jam world’s best will descend on the picturesque village of Lake George, including headliners Twiddle and Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, each of whom will be playing two sets.
To be held at the Charles R. Wood Festival Commons, the event will also feature a host of popular touring acts including G Love & Special Sauce, Pink Talking Fish, Ryan Montbleau Band, and Marco Benevento. Conducted by maestro extraordinaire Matt Butler, Everyone Orchestra, with its ever-changing roster of artists, will also be there and will include Chuck Garvey and Vinnie Amico (moe.), Tony Markellis (Trey Anastasio Band), Steve Molitz (Particle), Sam Kininger (Soulive / Lettuce), Ryan Montbleau and Hayley Jane.
Rounding out the lineup are Kung Fu, Midnight North, Lucid, Hayley Jane & The Primates, People’s Blues of Richmond, Barika, Deadgrass, The Big Takeover, Hartley’s Encore, Rich Ortiz, The New Motif, Eggy, Funktional Flow, and Annie in the Water.
Twiddle’s Mihali Savoulidis and Zdenek Gubb will also perform a set on Sunday afternoon as “Gubbulidis & Frends,” for a not-to-be-missed set that will include a number of very special guests. The music will run continuously for nearly 12 hours each day from 11:30 a.m. until 11:00 p.m. across two stages, and it doesn’t stop there. The party moves to late-night sets taking place just a short stroll from the festival grounds at King Neptune’s Pub and Nightclub, where The New Motif, Eggy, Funktional Flow, and Annie in the Water will be keeping the grooves alive until until 3 a.m. Best of all, admission is free to festival-goers 21 and older.
In case you think two days and nights of raging to some killer jams isn’t enough to fill your music bucket, you can add a multi-venue kick-off party on Friday, August 30. Regional favorites Art Funk and Capital Zen will play at 6 p.m. at Shepard Park in downtown Lake Lake George, followed by Floodwood at 10 p.m. at King Neptune’s. Both shows are free and open to the general public.
