Come One, Come All To The Gathering Of The Vibes

08:01 AM Friday 4/24/09 |   |

Four days of incredible music combined with that classic counter-culture spiritual renewal beckon you back to Connecticut for this year’s Gathering of The Vibes featuring Crosby, Stills & Nash, Bob Weir & Ratdog, Buddy Guy, George Clinton, moe., and the Levon Helm Band.

This year’s festival, scheduled for July 24 – 26, marks the 14th time the faithful will gather for some of the tastiest vibes of summer, and the fifth time the event happens at Seaside Park in  Bridgeport, Conn.  Last year the festival drew 20,000 music lovers per day to the 270-acre site. Now is the time to start thinking Vibes as in tickets and who’s going to take care of your pets while you’re out in the Connecticut sunshine breathing in that fresh salt air and soaking up those good vibrations.

What’s more, festival organizers have designated the last day of the festival as the Sunday Family Day at the Vibes, where kids 15 and under will be admitted free as long as they’re with their parents.

The Sunday lineup, which continues the 40th anniversary of the Woodstock Music & Arts Festival meme prevalent throughout the festival, features Woodstock vets Crosby, Stills & Nash

Of course, any authentic celebration of the original Woodstock festival wouldn’t be complete without an appearance by Wavy Gravy, who will be that day’s master of ceremonies.

Other performers appearing Sunday include Buddy Guy, Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, John Brown’s Body and the Harlem Gospel Choir.

The three days leading up to Sunday are just as impressive.

Thursday, July 23 starts off with Grateful Dead concert re-creators Dark Star Orchestra and Dead alumna Donna Jean Godchaux along with an appearance by The Machine.

On Friday it’s moe., Deep Banana Blackout, George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic, J.J. Grey & Mofro, Keller Williams, Strangefolk, King For A Day and Lettuce.

Saturday is another great day of music and atmosphere wth Bob Weir & Ratdog, Levon Helm Band, Guster, State Radio, Max Creek, Assembly of Dust, Ryan Montbleau Band and Perpetual Groove.

Gathering of the Vibes was conceived in 1996 as a celebration of the life of The Grateful Dead’s Jerry Garcia, who passed away the previous year. In fact, the original name for the event was Deadhead Heaven. Along with commemorating Garcia’s legend, the GOTV’s yearly mission is to pair legendary artists with emerging acts.

Okay, enough of the sizzle. Let’s talk tickets.

The weekend camping pass currently priced at $185 gives you access from 12:01 a.m. Friday morn until just after that last encore on the last night, approximately 8 p.m. Sunday evening.

    From last year's Gathering: There's nothing like a few bubbles when you're waiting for the next band.

Single day tickets for Friday, Saturday and Sunday are also available in advance for $60 each. Although kids 12 and under get in free all weekend, it’s the Sunday Family Day when kids 15 and under will be admitted at no charge as long as they’re with their folks.

There are also VIP passes, including camping and non-camping and kids VIP passes. For more information on this year’s Gathering of the Vibes, please click here for the event’s Web site.
