Gathering Of The Vibes makes its initial lineup announcement for 2013, saying Phil Lesh & Friends and The Black Crowes will headline a weekend that also includes Tedeschi Trucks Band, The Roots, Grace Potter & The Nocturnals and John Butler Trio.
Gathering of The Vibes, Seaside Park Bridgeport, Conn.

Taking place July 25-28 at Seaside Park in Bridgeport, Conn., there will also be a couple of late night DJ sets by LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy and Rob Garza from Thievery Corporation.
The festival has grown a bit since founder Ken Hays held the first Gathering at SUNY Purchase College. Established in 1996 to honor the spirit of The Grateful Dead’s Jerry Garcia, this year’s Gathering Of The Vibes marks the seventh year at its new home at Seaside Park.
“Our 2013 lineup is a result of sorting through thousands of comments and surveys responses; we hope to deliver an experience that keeps our core fans happy while remaining diverse and current,” Hays said. “It’s a model and approach that works for us.”
Of course, this is the initial lineup announcement and is not a complete list of acts appearing at the Gathering. Last year, GOTV hosted more than 40 bands on multiple stages while it gave festivalgoers a most excellent weekend by the sea.
