After a week of dropping subtle hints as to just what band will be headlining Equifunk V this year, the time has come to let y’all know what is up. Live For Live Music and Team Equifunk are super stoked to announce that NOLA funk/jazz legends Galactic will be your camp counselors at Equifunk V this year.

For those of you that may not know about this incredible festival, here is a breakdown for you. Equifunk is the result of what was originally supposed to be a bachelor party with the Zen Trickster playing a few years back. Eric Kamen, Eric Welles, Jeff Fischer and friends (many of whom were actual campers at Camp Equinunk when they were kids) thought that these grounds would serve as the perfect place to hold a smaller, intimate festival. With bunks on site (yes, just like on Salute Your Shorts), plenty of room for camping, two pools, a lake, and a location right over the NY border in the Pocono Mountains, the decision to make this happen was a no-brainer. And how about adding an All-Inclusive tag to the festival? Meaning all the beer you can drink, and all your meals taken care of for you. Yeah, seriously!!! Golf carts with kegs strapped to them actually come to YOU and fill up YOUR cup; oh, and dinner on Friday, all three meals on Saturday, and breakfast on Sunday. And there is a pool party all day Saturday taboot. Now THIS is the kind of summer festival we have been looking for.

And getting back to the main point of this story….GALACTIC is headlining!!!!!!! The NOLA festival circuit veterans are bringing their unique brand of funk, jazz, rock, hip-hop, electronic music to Equifunk for the first time. It is sure to be an incredible experience to see such a world-class band like Galactic play in such an intimate setting in the mountains. Are you all thinking what we are? This is going to be like our very own private Mardi Gras party in August!!! Let’s have our own parade, break out the beads, girls lift up your shirts and show us your…ummmm, well let’s just save that one ’til August, shall we?

The rest of Equifunk V’s lineup will be announced in the coming weeks. With lineups in the past that have included The New Deal, Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe, The New Mastersounds, The Radiators, George Porter Jr., Kung-Fu, and Turkuaz, we assure you that this year’s lineup is going to be the best yet. Make sure to get on your tickets ASAP, because a festival as amazing and intimate as Equifunk V will be selling out quickly.
