Celebrating its 19th year as a festival, Gathering of the Vibes will rock on at Seaside Park in Bridgeport, CT from July 31 to August 3 this year. Born from the community-building traditions of the Grateful Dead and its fan base, Vibes provides a unique musical experience where attendees can celebrate the creation of innovative music while renewing bonds of friendship. This festival captures the essence of a true musical community and is something the Vibes prides itself on.
Camping at Vibes is an experience unlike any other, and attendees can purchase a weekend camping pass, which includes three stages of amazing music all weekend, late night ragers and tons of festivities (including silent discos on the beach all night long).
VIP Weekend Camping passes include access to special viewing platforms, access to the luxurious VIP tent, supplied with an abundance of drinks and snacks, hot showers, bathrooms, gourmet lunches and a Sunday Brunch. The Headcount VIP Weekend Camping and Meet & Greet tickets offer private Q&A sessions with Mickey Hart, Bill Kreutzmann and The Disco Biscuits on Saturday; and Brad Corrigan, Pete Francis, and Chad Urmston of Dispatch on Sunday.
All kids under 12 can camp for free and everyone should experience the magic of camping at Vibes at least once.
This year’s lineup is out of this world, and HT is exceptionally excited about catching The Disco Biscuits with Mickey Hart & Bill Kreutzmann, Widespread Panic, Umphrey’s McGee, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead, Lotus, moe., Slightly Stoopid, Dark Star Orchestra, and Stanley Jordan.
