Today, moe. has announced that their beloved festival, moe.down, will return in 2019. The festival is set to return to Snow Ridge in Turin, NY from Thursday, July 4th through Friday, July 6th, 2019. According to the announcement, the moe.down 2019 will feature “three nights of camping and seven sets of moe. with more artists to be announced.”
The return of moe.down in 2019 will mark the 17th edition of the Buffalo-native jam band’s multi-day event. While the event took place annually for years, the band took an indefinite hiatus from their titular festival after its 2014 running. In 2017, moe. revived moe.down at Snow Ridge, moving the dates of the event to encompass July 4th weekend. With bassist Rob Derhak sidelined during his ultimately successful battle with cancer throughout the end of 2017, moe. skipped out on hosting the 17th moe.down in 2018, opting instead for more contained club and theater dates throughout the year.
Now, with the band back in good health and playing at the highest of levels, moe. is ready to revive their festival in 2019. Early bird tickets for the event will be made available soon, and lineup announcements will be made as the event draws closer.

Next up for moe. is a run of late-2019 shows in the Southeast beginning the week after Thanksgiving on Wednesday, November 28th at Charleston Music Hall in Charleston, SC. The tour will continue with shows in Orlando, FL (11/29); Fort Lauderdale, FL (11/30); Saint Petersburg, FL (12/1); Ponte Vedra Beach, FL (12/2); Charlotte, NC (12/5); Birmingham, AL (12/6); Atlanta, GA (12/7, 12/8); and Nashville, TN (12/9). Finally, to wrap up their 2018 plans, moe. will mount a two-night New Year’s run at the Kodak Center in Rochester NY on December 30th and 31st before kicking off their 2019 schedule with their tropical throe.down, set to take place from January 10th through 13th in Runaway Bay, Jamaica.
