Rounding out day two is Margo Price, Hiss Golden Messenger, Big Something, Driftwood, Stephen Lewis and the Big Band of Fun, Diana Demuth, Hayley Jane and Friends, Caleb Hawley, and Jamie Drake.
Brandi Carlile sits atop the day three schedule along with Grace Potter, Michael Franti & Spearhead, and Yola, The Ghost of Paul Revere, David Wax Museum, Sammy Rae and the Friends, Scruffy Pearls, Wild Rivers, Raye Zaragoza, Kevin Daniel, and The Rock Academy round out the Mountain Jam 2020 lineup.
“I’m glad to be returning to Mountain Jam again after last year’s maiden voyage at Bethel Woods,” says co-presenter and performer Warren Haynes. “It’s a beautiful and historic site and a great place to host such a diverse three nights of music.”
“Mountain Jam 2020 is a unique and highly curated festival, separate and apart from other music festivals,” says Gary Chetkof, founder of Mountain Jam, in a press release. “We are thrilled to welcome Trey for the first time in our 16-year history, as well as to welcome back some old friends and to spotlight many of the great women making music today. The Levon Helm 80th birthday tribute will bring joy and tears and some very special guests. In addition, we continue to evolve the festival with lawn ticket prices that are lower than we have ever offered, as well as reserved seating options for the day or the entire weekend, and a VIP program that is second to none. On-site camping will be for RVs only this year, as we will utilize nearby campgrounds to offer our fans the best camping experience possible. And returning to Bethel Woods, a world class venue with the rich history of Woodstock, provides Mountain Jam with a special backdrop and amazing vibes.”
“There is no better way to kick-off the 2020 summer season at Bethel Woods than welcoming back Mountain Jam for its 2nd year at our historic concert venue and Museum. We are excited for the cultural opportunity this represents for our guests and community,” adds Eric Frances, Chief Executive Officer of Bethel Woods Center for the Arts.
