Rising jam band Formula 5 is gearing up for a big 2018. The Upstate New York upstarts have just announced a 21-show spring tour which spans April and May before culminating with festival appearances at Domefest, Sterling Stage Folkfest, and Disc Jam Music Festival. Along the way, Formula 5 will hit the Northeast, Midwest, and Southeast, performing with Perpetual Groove, McLovins, The Magic Beans, The Southern Belles, Goose, and Space Carnival.
The band has also revealed plans for their second annual ‘Rock The Dock’ Music Festival, set to take place on July 13th, 2018 in Lake George, NY. In addition to Formula 5, Rock The Dock’s musical lineup includes Soule Monde (Featuring Ray Paczkowski & Russ Lawton of Trey Anastasio Band), Strange Machines, and Let’s Be Leonard, all of which can be enjoyed from any of the three historic Lake George steamboats that wrap around the stage. Craft and food vendors will also be on hand for Rock The Dock.
“Rock The Dock was started as a way to celebrate the Lake George Steamboat Company‘s 200th anniversary by doing something that the company has never done in its history, hold a concert on the pier,” explains event manager Luke Dow. “The concert was a way of giving back to all the loyal patrons as well as showcase the talents of local artists and food trucks. This year’s festival will also be focused on giving back, with 25% of all ticket proceeds benefiting the FUND for Lake George, to help with their efforts to keep the lake clean and pristine for years to come.”
You can secure tickets today on the festival’s website here.
