“We are beyond excited for LonCon this year,” Baked Shrimp guitarists Jared Cowen said. “We really worked hard to bring in some incredible talent from all different corners of the jam scene. Many of the performers I grew up going to see live, so having them at LonCon, and having the whole thing at Yasgur’s is really such an amazing collision of dreams coming true.”

Late-night programming at LonCon will also include DJ sets from Drunken Doja Monkey, featuring lespecial bassist Luke Bemand and drummer Rory Dolan, as well as Goose after-party starter Joey Doey.

The LonCon festival is hosted in memory of Lon “Conscious” Gellman, a fixture in the Northeast jam scene who passed away unexpectedly in November 2020. Last year, Baked Shrimp released its sophomore album, Conscious, naming it after the band’s departed friend. A portion of the proceeds from the festival will go to the Lon Conscious Gellman Memorial Scholarship Fund, benefiting music students at Queens College.

Early bird tickets for LonCon 2022 are on sale now through March 11th, followed by a general on-sale. Stay tuned for additional lineup announcements.
