Catskill Chill Music Festival has announced dates for the sixth annual event, which will take place September 18-20, 2015,one week later than is tradition for the three-day music celebration. The organizers have also announced that 2015 is the final year that Catskill Chill will take place at the much-loved Camp Minglewood in Hancock, New York.
“It is with heavy hearts that we have to announce that 2015 will mark the final year of the Catskill Chill’s glorious run at Camp Minglewood,” said festival founder Dave Marzollo. “We would keep our event at it’s original home forever if we could, but we have been informed that, for reasons beyond our control, we will no longer be able to host our family at the place we’ve come to love. The bright side is that we have one final chance to enjoy those rolling slopes of our intimate campus for one last mighty celebration – The Sixth Annual Catskill Chill Music Festival: A Farewell to Minglewood! Whether you have been to every Chill, or you have always wanted to go but never made it, this will be an epic Chill chapter that you will not want to miss.
Yes, the Chill will continue after this year, and we already have a few amazing prospective new facilities to choose from, but for now let’s focus on a weekend we’ll remember forever. It will be an incredible going away party – one last chance to put our arms around each other and sing our favorite lyrics in that musical sanctuary that’s become such a special part of our lives.”
Past headliners of the festival have included Yonder Mountain String Band, Lettuce, The New Deal, and Shpongle, but they won’t be announcing their 2015 headliners until spring. With amazingly talented acts like that on their past lineups, you know it’s going to be good!
Catskill Chill offers parking, camping, on-site cabin rentals, daily yoga, live art, a farmer’s market, craft and food vendors, a communal bonfire nightly and an open mic. Nestled in the Catskill Mountains, where the beauty of nature synchronizes with the euphoric sounds of live music, this intimate lakeside celebration is one of the most anticipated events in the New York area and is annually expected to sell out.
You won’t want to miss this last year at their beloved Camp Minglewood, so get your tickets soon! They are available for sale currently.
