Gathering of the Vibes is an annual music, arts and camping festival now in its 18th year. Vibes has grown into a four-day festival that has featured such world-class talent as Crosby, Stills and Nash, all founding members of the Grateful Dead, Elvis Costello, the Allman Brothers Band, James Brown, Jane’s Addiction, the Black Crowes, Buddy Guy, Jimmy Cliff, Primus, George Clinton and P-Funk, Bruce Hornsby, Les Claypool, Branford Marsalis, Damian Marley and Nas, and more. The Vibes is also a launching pad for extraordinarily talented, young, up-and-coming bands who have the opportunity to showcase their talent to the 20 thousand people who attend each year.

Held in six different venues over its eighteen years, Vibes 2013 marks the festival’s ninth return to Seaside Park in Bridgeport, CT, making Seaside Park home to the Vibes more than any other venue. Vibes has become the Northeast’s preeminent music festival — springing from traditions born in the Grateful Dead community.
