Headspun Productions is proud to announce the first Mountain View Jam, a new festival in North Carolina featuring a diverse group of up and coming talent, to take place on the weekend of May 14-16 in Elon, NC. Not only is this a great music event, but it's a charitable one too. With the gathering of such like-minded people and the positive power of music, proceeds from the festival will be donated to the American Cancer Society and designated for Cancer Research. Panic Fans for Food will be on site running a canned food drive, along with HeadCount who will be registering music fans to vote.

This year's incredible line up has some of the best touring acts, each with their own original flair, currently in the jam/groove scene, including

The Code Talkers Featuring Col. Bruce Hampton, Barefoot Manner, Signal Path, Tishamingo, ulu, New Monsoon, Jeff Austin (of YMSB), Transcendental Hayride, Willie And Me, Guta, Tea Leaf Green, Seth Yacovone Band, Perpetual Groove, Moonshine Still, Captain Soularcat, Kinetic, Mac and Juice, The Avett Brothers, Coon Phat Gravy, Kate McNally, and Benny Galloway.

More bands and information are coming soon!

Festival attendees will enjoy three days of camping on scenic land, enjoying great music and food as well as "original" arts and crafts vendors. There will be two stages for bands with performances starting mid-afternoon Friday and ending at Sunday at 5:00 p.m. There will be late night shows Friday and Saturday going on until 2:30 a.m. In addition to these stages there will be a drum circle area and plenty of places to inspire impromptu acoustic music gatherings. Innova Disc Golf will be setting up an 18-hole disc golf course that will wind through this scenic land for the weekend's festivities and a commemorative professional golf disc will be given to the first 3,000 attendees to the festival.

Festival dates are May 14-16, and the site is a 750-acre farm north of Elon, NC. Advanced tickets are $65, which includes camping and parking. There are no hidden fees. Tickets bought after April 15 are $75. Gates to the festival open on Friday, May 14 at 8:00 a.m. and close Sunday at 10:00 p.m.
