500 people were arrestd at Camp bisco and 300 at Jam on the Mountain. Warren rules, but don't smoke weed there unless you want to go to prison. The cops at Hunter hate hippies.

went to both mountainjam and camp bisco last year at hunter mounatin. moutainjam was chill as a far as festivals go i didn't see any one get busted or really hear any complaints. However camp bisco was a different animal all together, 500 arressts sounds about right and i think there were to 2 death. I'd say thats what you get when you eat biscuits that make you disco! ;)

I went to both Mountain Jam and Camp Bisco last summer. Security at Camp Bisco was a disgrace to the entire idea of a music festival scene. The cops were on a huge power trip and kids were getting cuffed and choke slammed for just having a pipe. Mountain Jam, however, was very chill and the security seemed almost non-existent (at least not any more intense than the average festival). I think the cops heard all the usual rumors about tDB fans and ended up cracking down. I do not think it will be that way at Mountain Jam since they seemed to have much less of a problem with the Mule crowd. Aside from security issues, Hunter Mountain is one of the most unique places you could put on festival. If it does not rain all weekend again like last year, it will be the headiest weekend ever.

I'd like to mention that I love Mule and support them, but our scene needs to avoid places like Hunter and The Starland Ballroom wher the cops consider it sport to arrest us. We are the customer and the customer smokes weed. SO if you don't like us, don't book our bands and if we are targets our bands should protect us. Enough Trey comments losers, get a life

Wow, uh yyeah, screw bonnaroo. Good lineup, but too pricee and too far away. This lineup is sick! For a good price and its a lot closer.
And to bigfro, sorry bro, but aint no cops gonna make me not go to this or any other fest. Sure if shit hits the fan, its gonna put a damper on things(like waka). We are the customer, we pay for three days of music. Not the privlage to smoke the green, don't get me wrong I love the stuff. But its just as illegal inside as it is outside
Its a game and its time to go pro.

I was at Mt. Jam last year and I really didn't see many cops. Only ones were the ones by the gate entering the stage area but otherwise festival secruity was chill as ever. Maybe thatas because of the massive amount of rain that was dumped on Hunter Mountain that weekend but overall the atmosphere was pretty relaxed.

letitride.......security at Summercamp (at least last year) wasn't terrible. Although it is very possible to get busted, just gotta be able to read people because I heard about undercovers goin around posing as dealers and fucked up shit like that. Besides that just don't flaunt your abuse and you're all good.

you will hear completely different stories from different people, USAUALLY, it just depends on teh situation and the timing, the bottom line is be carefull, it gets worse every year, just b/c a festi has been 'chill' in the past doesnt mean it cant happen, people be smart you can do all the drugs you want in your own home, dont take risks. all your festi needs are there anyway, why be the one sneaking them in? this lineup looks awesome!!!!!

Mtn. Jam last year was great it was my favorite festy of the year. The line-up was solid all the way thru and there was a lot of great people there. I didn't see anyone in trouble with the police. The security there was really funny, if you went in the main entrance you got searched by police but you could just walk around to the far end of the building and just walk right in the side doors. Coming from the camping area the main checkpoint wouldn't even let you bring in water bottles but if you walked a few minutes up the hill to the other gate you could just walk right in. Didn't make any sense.

I went to Mountain Jam and live close enough to drive back and forth. As I was leaving on Saturdy, I remember cops were hassling some people in the parking lot but not sure exactly for what. I can't say what the situation was like in the campgrounds but aside from that instance, it seemed relaxed. The only problem with this fest is the crappy weather. It's always rainy and cold in Upstate New York in early June.

I think the linup looks great. I saw the New Orleans Social Club at Christmas Jam. They were terrific. The rest of the bands are great too, but if you haven't heard the NOSC, you have to check them out.

As for the cops, I know one person who was busted last year and I know he was not the only one, so be very careful as you enter the festival itself. The cops were right by the entrance door and in the general parking area by the entrance. I did not see any cops inside the festival grounds at all. Always be careful of course and don't let stuff fall out of your pocket as you fumble to get your entrance ticket.

This is gonna be a great weekend, and I look forward to it. Rain or shine. :-)

Looks like an awesome weekend this year - really pumped they've lengthened it to three days! Hopefully Umphrey's will play one of the main night shows. Last year the security was fairly relaxed. My friend and I also snuck up the side of the mountain to bring some in some brew ha-has. Although we were reprimanded for selling jello shots, they didn't really do much about it. camp bisco's security was absurd. I can't wait to see some more artists announced, but count me in!

I think its hilarious that the website has '30 days in the hole' playing on a loop...haha. Cant miss out on 3 days of Warren playing with every band and Mule though.

Nice line up; like Mango Nutbag I'd like to see MMW, and the Duo on the bill too. Other good choices would be moe., Burning Spear, John Brown's Body, The Radiators, Kimmock and Page and Fishman.

For my money Jones Beach security is the most militant.

Why is everyone so surprised about militant cops? If you act like an idiot and break the law in front of them, how can you not expect to get slammed to the pavement. Cops are everywhere. They are there to protect people. If you haven't seen someone get too out of control and ruin someone else's good time, you havent been to enough shows.

I've been to over 350 or so shows, and as a person who has been around this scence, we tend to take care of ourselves, I've seen it happen without the benefit of the cops, sure there are stupid people in our scene. That is what drugs and alcohol do to already stupid people, they make them more stupid. and thankfully they are outnumbered by the people that aren't. It is all about control.

Lineup does look great. But back to the cop issue. The customer isn't always right. You have no right to break the law. I like most of you think weed should be legal, but it isn't so write your congressman, donate to NORML, etc. To place the burden of protecting your own personal drug use on the musicians is unfair. Besides if people are dying, regardless of how few, something should be done. Be glad there still is a festival. Panic is no longer welcome at Oak Mt., a place where some truly special moments in their history took place.

I can't believe no mention of how cool it is that an unknown band will be opening the last day. It's obvious that took heart to even consider this as an option--way to not forget the humble beginnings of up & comers. RIGHT ON, Big Daddy Warren... Hats off to you for making that happen. Yet another reason to make every effort to get there. I'm thinking seriously about making this my 1st Mountain Jam...dealing with crazy law enforcement is no shocker. I've played that game before...haven't we all jumped through a few hoops dealing with the Officer Farva's(ie; supertroopers)of the world. I've been smoke-free @ many shows to avoid the cuffs...it is what it is. I'm thinking it'll be a great time for some brownies. "If you can eat it, you can beat it" (a line I heard on Weeds last season)

Worst festie security = Wakarusa. Cops would strait up walk around with flashlights and walk around at night up to camp sights with people just chillin' out. Sneak attack style. It was scary (actually while dosed). I saw people gettin arrested left and right, both of the past 2 years i went. Wakarusa = Bustarusa. Be careful.

And remember kids... one Trey at a time.

I help organize a small fest and I just want to point out that festi organizers can't control undercovers, local police, or DEA coming in and doing anything they want if they think it’s a haven for drug use and underage drinking. I've seen it first hand. This action is in response to the environment that OUR scene creates. I personally love all kinds of partying but I will say this, everyone has to start being more careful with what they are doing and where IMMEDIATELY! Remember these fests are not free for alls, be responsible and 99% of the time you will be fine. This kind of action from law enforcement of any kind is only going to get worse, until there is a reason (real or perceived) for them not come. We will be lucky if this camping/music fest thing will even be around in two years because if a local community doesn't like your event they can and will shut it down by scaring away your attendees. That’s the bottom line. Tighten up for yer own good y’all.

Wow this looks like a grate show. The only act I would subtract (or just take a nap during) is Papa Mali. I saw him open for Galactic and was left wondering how such a mediocre musician was able to get on tour with a band as musically proficient as the headliners. Even though I play guitar better than this dude, I could leave my instrument behind and fart a better show. Ok sorry for the negativity. Peace!

The camp/music fest will continue to flourish as long as people are making money. look at roo: Superfly bought the property and they seem to be giving more money to Coffee County every year. they'e there for the long haul. I might even go back some day if they get the right line-up.

Y'all just got to use your heads at these things. Of all fests I've been to, All Good was the most chill. But this mtn Jam looks good. Is security really that much of a downer at this one?

I think Roo is attracting other people than the Jam band crowd these days on purpose.

Yup, this is going to be a good time. 2 time being at this fest, and it looks like Warren definitely pulled out some great acts once again. Phil owes Warren a favor anyway from the sound of the two-day run at SOB's. Either way, going to be a sick time.

festival looks great but i do not understand why phil continues to bring warren in as a "friend" Warren's sound does not go w/ the Dead tunes at all. his voice is not right for any of the songs and neither is his guitar. he is a southern rock slide guitar player. that's what he does. and actually, why do the allmans' have him singing? they have the best sounding southern scratchy voice singer of all time. gregg allman, heard of him? warren should stick to government mule, where he just flat out rocks. i don't mean to be, or like being, negative, but i love phil and the dead too much to not voice my opinion. warren does not need to be doing grateful dead songs.

Are you kidding me Phil is coming!? I've hit this festi up the last 2 years and I thought I wouldn't be able to make it this year. I'm going to have to make it happen somehow now.

Phil 'n Friends were phantastic last tour!
Been sooo impressed with Radio Woodstock's bookings so far.
Though I love myself some livetronica and some of the newer indie type stuff out there, it is clear this is one festival that will maintain the status quo of Rock, Blues and Jam!
Thank you for bringin a taste of the south up to upstate ny.

This weekend is going to be intense....The Phil show will close the deal, with Gov't Mule still playing two nights and Mule jamming Friday instead. FWIW, RAQ owns and is playing a late night set on Friday, yet is curiously absent from any of the above updates. Just saw them at the Bowery saturday and I am as excited for them as anyone else.

Now we just need to start sacrificing to the weather gods...

saw earl greyhound open for rose hill drive and they are bad azz. the guitarist looks and plays like peter green when he was in fleetwood mack. and the bassist is like a female hendrix she has soul and it just pours from her. excellent stage presence.

With all due respect, Mike_C, have you gone back and listened to your Phil and Friends 2001-2002 tapes lately? Warren + Phil = an AMAZING musical experience (especially if you throw in Barraco, Herring, and Molo)

I have to agree with lexslamman, I went back and went through 4 or 5 shows from 01-02 with warren after I saw the Mike_C comments. Warren made AMAZING music with that lineup, they did great justice to the dead songs. I was at 4/27, 4/28, 4/29 and 4/30 to end that tour and could rattle off many tunes that would blow your ear off. If you have any questions about Warren singing dead tunes, take liten to 4/30 at the Roseland in NYC (Wharf Rat in the first set and Stella Blue encore), if you still don't like it I feel sorry for you. Just my thoughts.

Spaceface7 who loves the cops and thinks we deserve to be punished because weed is illegal.
You should know some slave didn't want to leave their masters, but a bitch is a bitch. I'd rather go somewhere chill like Moe down was last year than punish myself for a pork fest. You go pro into jail mofo,

Bonnaroo proves that if you put a festival in a place that helps the locals then the police won't mess with people. It is certainly trial and error, but even the Dead found hippy venues to play after years of practice. Maine offered the Air force base to get Phish there and the police were cool. If Hunter doesn't want our money someone else will. DOn't assume we must all bend over. IT IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE PROMOTER TO TAKE ALL THIS INTO CONSIDERATION. Tough SHit

all of you say the lineup looks so good but i dont want to get arrested. if you go there to appreciate the lieup then you wont get arrested. dont just go to fests to get fucked up and be safe from cops. enjoy the music and be responsible and discreet when youre doing something the cops wouldnt agree with.

gotta question...if i'm camping, will i be searched each time i go from the camping area into the concert area? does that mean i gotta hide my stash each time? that would really suck.

If your idea of "really suck" means hiding your stash then you should take comfort in the fact that you have it pretty good.

DONT STEP ON THE GRASS, SAM (YOUR SO FULL OF SHIT, SAM)

it seems like the cops get awful pissed when people OD at festi's. i dont like how they deal with it but i guess i understand a bit. mabey we could all frown upon hard drug use and sale at festi's and mabey we wouldnt have as mucth trouble with this in the end... mabey not.

I personally try to stay pro-active in pushing the green into the mainstream (DOIN' IT RIGHT NOW, ACTUALLY) - Lots of good, honest, hard working people are smoking it anyway and if we were honest about it it wont be sucth a big deal (look at the progress in cali!!!). i try to smoke openly at shows - thats one of the things i do...but i would be willing to behave a bit to support what Warren is doing here. it would be a small sacrafice on my part to see WHP do well presenting more shows.

(boy can i carry on and on and on and on about music n stuff)

Phil's quintet ('00-'01 - WH, JH, JM, RB + phil) was the bomb! Warren sang dead (jerry or brent) tunes VERRY WELL. when i hear dead tunes (becoming standards theese days) what i want to hear is an origonal interpritation of the material - not a copy cat tracing of the origonal. Warren brings his own beauty to tunes like Stella Blue and wrenches out deep cuts like Just a Little Light with athourity - heavy on the wrasp and light on the brent! dont like Warren on the the dead stuff? dig some of Mule's rockin interpretations of Miles Davis or James Brown tunes...MOST INSPIRING! if your gonna do other peoples stuff, this is how to do it!

I have been to Mountain Jam and noticed the police every year. I notice they are sneaky and at the same time very lax. It seems to me the first few days they are lax and anything goes. They give you a sense that they dont care and you can do whatever you want. However, on the last day they shake everyone coming in from the parking lot. My girlfriend is extremely innocent looking and they searched her for like 5 minutes. Also one of my best friend packed up her shit and brought it back to the car on sunday so she could leave. On the way in a police (who are the men with red hunter shirts, sun glasses, a ugly mustash and a cheap hair cut that makes them look like cops for a reason) found weed on her. Then they shaked her down completely and found and E. They brought her down below where tickets are sold where she joined about 20 other poor girls who had been nipped. They were rude gave her tickets for everything and while she was down there they were testing E and a girl who was ahead of her had a pill that tested for heroin and got in huge trouble. The cop laughed and said he doesnt care if she was told she bought E (molly shards) because his test said it was H. Each year I have a friend that gets busted. Be smart, and for the last day chill out...
