One of my favorite summer events, The Green River Festival, has announced the first artists for this year and it includes some of my most-loved acts!
Great music, chill atmosphere, fabulous food trucks (seriously), wonderful beer provided – at least in the past – by Berkshire Brewing Company, terrific artisans selling their ware, and hot air balloons all contribute to a spectacular festival!
The Green River Festival celebrated its 30th anniversary in July with a spectacular lineup! Sure, it rained during much of the Festival, but that did not dampen my spirits in the least! It wasn’t quite Woodstock – there was little to no mud – but it was fabulous.
I will start with my top three sets/experiences from the Festival, in no particular order.
Recently I was introduced to two bands in the Americana genre and I believe both are worthy of your attention and support.
I woke up on the last day of the Green River Festival eager for more music – the previous day was so terrific that I needed more! Unfortunately it was a scorcher of a day and that caused me to not want to walk around more than necessary; all that meant was that I missed acts I wanted to see but still saw amazing acts.
What a day of incredible music! The first full day of the 2015 Green River Festival had a fantastic schedule, as I have come to expect from this Festival.
Despite the unrelenting heat (which was worse the following day), people danced, paraded, availed themselves of the cooling tent, and generally had an amazing day.
I had never attended the Green River Festival, a two-day festival in Greenfield, Massachusetts, before the 28th annual Festival held last weekend. I was only able to attend on Sunday but it was enough to know that Green River is great fest!
My first impression was that the vibe is very chill; when I asked a volunteer about my photo pass, she led me to a booth and waited to make sure I got the pass. She told me the ‘rules’ and perquisites associated with the pass.
