Festival Fever: The Green River Festival, 7/20&21/13

The Green River Festival returns to Greenfield Community College in Greenfield, Mass. this weekend with another stellar line-up of performers.

Everyone who’s been to past Green River fests has raved about it, and the fest offers something that you certainly won’t find at many other fests – hot air balloon launches (at 6 & 9pm on Saturday and at 6am & 6pm on Sunday).

But music is the real attraction at Green River. There are three stages running throughout the weekend, from 12:50-11pm on Saturday and 12:25-8pm on Sunday. And the list of this year’s featured performers includes a veritable gumbo of great sounds.

Two-day all-fest tickets are available only in advance for $90. Single day tickets are available for $65 in advance or $75 at the gate.
