GOTV: DATE, VENUE, BANDS

From www.gatheringofthevibes.com:

As we near the end of another year, we at Terrapin are busy planning for the next. Though The Gathering of the Vibes is only one weekend each year, the preparations run 'round the calendar as we pull a million details together so everything is just right when we all come together in the summer.

We are thrilled to finally and formally announce that the next Gathering of the Vibes will take place at Seaside Park in Bridgeport, CT on August 9-12, 2007. As many of you know, this is familiar turf for us: two truly momentous Gatherings were held at the park in 1999 and 2000. Now, after five wonderful years as grateful guests of the Potter family and Indian Lookout Country Club, we look forward to this return to our roots.

Following the 2000 event, Seaside Park began a major renovation. Thus we are returning to an even more spectacular setting next summer with newly reseeded fields, a refurbished 'Casino' building, and many more infrastructure improvements. The park has never looked so fine, and legendary showman PT Barnum, who donated the space to the city of Bridgeport in 1875, would be proud. We think he would be equally impressed with the lively, fun-filled, colorful event we joyfully conspire to host there.

One big change over the 1999-2000 Gatherings at Seaside Park is a feature we've all come to love in recent years: YES, there will be car-side camping! Along with flush toilets, showers, playgrounds, a skate park, and over a mile of pristine beach within a short walk, this is shaping up to be the ideal space for our annual 'family reunion.' We look forward to seeing you there - it truly wouldn't be the same without you!

Further details will emerge as they crystallize. Stay tuned - this circus ride has only just begun! Meanwhile, may the coming holidays shower you with love and warmth. Please know that your love and energy keeps us burning the midnight oil through the cold months, toward the one goal of bringing us all joyously and safely together when the sun is high and the breezes are balmy. Until we meet again, take care of yourselves and your loved ones.

Sounds like a wonderful place for a festy... CT is a bit of a hike for me, but I think I just may have to do it. Deep Banana droppin funk bombs, Ratdog making me smile, Buddy Guy?? One of the best to ever pick up an axe... sounds like a damn good time to me

after nine years of vibes participation i have only seen it go in a bad direction, every year Ken's ramble on stage is more and more incoherent and off target. im dissappointed in terrapins attitude, and the trudge out of the forest into the city. Ken's people have lost their fous and ideals. good Luck Ill probably be there for Ratdog. Get Better phil !!!!

Hold the F'in phone... There's a Casino!?!?!? This place sounds awesome and a nice start on the lineup.
And props to the artist or artists that do the gotv artwork, looks real sick.

I'm so psyched. CT is usually very poorly represented in the festival scene. I live an hour from bridgeport so that rocks. I talked to the Fuzz and he is excited about playing Vibes in Deep Banana's hometown this year. It should be an awesome time.

Went to Seaside a bunch of years ago for GOTV. Very clean and smooth and you can walk to the beach.

Hahaha, I was a bright eyed 19 yr old when I last saw the Vibes here in sorry to say shit hole Bridgeport. But wow what a great time. As long as you don't have to journey out in town you should have a blast here. Im soooo glad to see them get out of Schenectady. I hope to see you all there!

I loved Vibes at Indian Lookout but those bikers were getting out of control, I can't wait to check out Seaside Park, its closer to home and I've never been there!! Of course I'm psyched to get my annual dose of Deep Banana, I don't think I could go on living without it!!! See you all there!
