The Green River Festival has been a highlight of our summer for years now. It hasn't worked out with my personal schedule the past two years, but with today's initial line up announcement it better. So far only five artists have been announced, but they're all killer additions to any festival. They're even kind enough to announce what days they're playing:
First Aid Kit: Friday
The Wood Brothers: Saturday
The Devil Makes Three, Rhiannon Giddens, and Tyler Childers: Sunday
The Green River Festival is one of the most laid back and all ages friendly festivals around. It's one of the few that I get just as excited about the food trucks as I do the music. It always feels like a bunch of music fans somehow tricked artists to play a festival they made up, but run perfectly.
The Green River Festival runs July 13-15 at the Greenfield Community College in Greenfield, MA. For more information, check out their website, and make sure to buy early bird tickets!
