Green River Festival Announces Line-Up of Bands

The Green River Festival returns to the Greenfield Community College campus in Greenfield, Mass. again this summer, and once again, the three-day fest has come up with a blockbuster line-up of musical talent.

The festival runs from Friday-Sunday, July 10-12, with great local food, beer & wine, a handmade craft fair and lots of family games and activities. But the Green River Festival also boasts four hot air balloon launches and a spectacular Saturday night balloon glow.

But music is the main focus, and it stretches from folk to indie rock, reggae to zydeco, alt-country to blues and everything in between. The celebration of diverse world-class performers takes place on three stages throughout the festival grounds. Nearly 40 musical acts have been announced so far, with more to come.

Tickets are available at early-bird prices through April 17: $79.99 for three-day all-fest tickets, $19.99 for Friday only; $59.99 for Saturday only; $59.99 for Sunday only.

    Not the strongest lineup this year, but still an event worthy of attending.
