The StrangeCreek Campout takes over Camp Kee-Wanee in Greenfield, Mass., this Memorial Day weekend. The gates open at 5pm on Thursday (May 24), and the main stage music officially kicks off at 12noon on Friday (May 25).

As the name of the fest hints, headliners are Strangefolk (Sunday night) and Max Creek (Friday Saturday night). Among the other top bands at the fest are Donna the Buffalo, New Riders of the Purple Sage, Carbon Leaf, the Ryan Montbleau Band and Marco Benevento.

Advance tix are $110 for all-weekend passes. No single-day tix will be sold. Tix may or may not be available at the gate. A portion of ticket proceeds go to benefit Camp Kee-Wanee, an inclusive summer day camp for kids with an emphasis on music, the arts and the fostering of self-esteem.

    Max Creek headlines the StrangeCreek festival on Saturday night, not Friday night as reported. They headline the Saturday night performances every year.
