The 8th annual edition of Disc Jam Music Festival has announced the lineup for their 2018 event, set to take place from June 7th – 10th at Gardner‘s Farm in Stephentown, NY, minutes from the Massachusetts border. The music-filled weekend will feature over 80 artists, along with disc golf tournaments, Flow Tribe dancers, craft vending, yoga workshops and much more.
The 2018 artist lineup includes a heavy dose of national and regional funk and jam artists, in addition to collaborations, side projects, and other unique pairings only found at the festival. Headliners include Lotus, Beats Antique, Galactic, The Motet, Electron (feat. members of Lotus and Joe Russo’s Almost Dead), Disco Biscuits guitarist Jon ‘The Barber’ Gutwillig (solo acoustic set), DJ Logic and Friends (feat. members of The Disco Biscuits, Dopapod and Turkuaz), Gubbulidis (Twiddle side project), Kung Fu, Moon Hooch, Aqueous, Ghost Note (Snarky Puppy side project) Tom Marshall’s Amfibian All-Stars, Ghost Light (Tom Hamilton and Holly Bowling project), and many more.
As festival owner and founder Tony Scavone says of this year’s lineup, “We’ve spent the entire off-season trying to come up with a festival experience that could one-up the magic we conjured last year. I think what we have in store for 2018 will set the bar so high for next year, I’m already getting nervous thinking about how we’ll top this in 2019.” In their 4th consecutive year at Gardner’s Farm, after moving the festival from central Massachusetts, where it began in 2011, Disc Jam has found a venue that feels like home. Scavone explains, “I truly believe that we have been blessed with the perfect festival grounds, beautiful grass beneath our feet, surrounded by rolling hills with picturesque views in all directions.”
As the name Disc Jam indicates, this 4-day event features a disc golf element. Festival grounds hold a 27-hole disc golf course, and tournaments for men and women are held throughout the weekend, with cash and prizes from Innova Disc Golf going to the top finishers.
Going in style is easy, as VIP packages include options for either hotel or condo style rooms at the beautiful Jiminy Peak Ski Resort just 5 minutes from the venue. On top of the off-site accommodations, the event offers VIP camping areas and a VIP lounge sponsored by Lagunitas Brewing Company, which includes complimentary beer to anyone 21 years or older.
The festival features twin Main stages, ensuring nonstop music well into the night. It also features a massive Tent Stage and a Woods Stage which hosts nightly takeovers by NV Concepts, Rezinate, Sermon, and The Rust featuring some of the top names in bass and house music, as well as a nightly Silent Disco hosted by The Wook of Wall Street.
