    Greetings Friends!

    On the heels of an amazing Tenth Anniversary celebration last year, we're thrilled to unveil the initial lineup for this year's Eleventh Annual Gathering of the Vibes. We're bringing back some familiar faces and have added a number of first-time Vibes performers that we know you're going to be pretty fired up about seeing! We're looking forward to yet another amazing weekend with the VibeTribe this August 17 – 20 at Indian Lookout Country Club, just outside of Albany, NY.

    Weekend Tickets go on sale this Saturday, April 8th at 12 Noon EST at the special Early Bird price of $90. Early Bird tickets will only be available on-line. Just a limited number of these Early Bird tickets will be made available, so order early to take advantage of the price break. After the Early Bird tix's sell out, Weekend Passes will be available for $125 – you'll be able to pick these up on-line, over the phone, and at Ticket Outlets throughout the northeast.

    Weekend Passes get you through the gates beginning Friday morning, August 18th. If you want to get a jumpstart on your weekend, you're welcome to arrive on Thursday, August 17th to get a good camping spot staked out. Early Entry Camping Passes for the Thursday folks will be $20 per carload (so carpool!), payable when you arrive.

    VIP Tickets will also be available on April 8th, at $325 each. VIP's ride the Vibes in style, with catered meals, a private viewing area, complementary beverages, and dedicated bathrooms & showers. If you purchase a VIP Ticket, you won't need an Early Entry Camping Pass – just come down on Thursday and get settled in for the weekend!

    Well folks - it's official! Great music and quality time with friends – old and new – energizes the soul and returns you to reality with a bounce in your step and a twinkle in your eye. Our VibeTribe Family has created so many lasting memories over the years – we look forward to you helping us add another memorable page to the scrapbook!

    Until we meet again, be well, soak up the spring sunshine & enjoy the ride!

    Last year's Vibes was INCREDIBLE, and surely this year will be even better. Everyone should do themselves the favor of checking out the Ryan Montbleau Band... these guys are blowin' up fast, and with GOOD reason!! ;)

    last year's Vibes was incredible. This one looks good too. Ratdog has been excellent both times they've played @ the vibes;2000 (Les Claypool on The Other One!) and last year. The elements conspired against us, but it was one long set. One of the best Ratdog shows I've seen.

    this is just what I have been looking for this summer. Not to sound closed minded but, I am getting tired of indy and alt bands being put on fest bills. Most of these bands dont share the grassroots upbringing and sense of community that OUR SCENE IS BASED ON. This is a reletively small set of bands compared to the larger in your face fests that are presented today. A great line up and chance to see every band at the show is welcomed at least in my eyes. Hopefully I'll see y'all there.

    The line up looks great, I really want to go. I heard that the security at this thing is pretty tough though. Has anyone had any problems?

    Yes security is mean when you first go through the gate they will search your ride,There mostly looking for glass but I have heard they have taken other things. Peace
