The lineup for this year’s Gathering Of The Vibes, which takes place at Seaside Park in Bridgeport, CT on July 31 -August 3 was already stacked with Widespread Panic, John Fogerty, moe., The Disco Biscuits with Mickey Hart & Bill Kreutzmann and Umphrey’s McGee among the acts set to play Vibes in 2014. This morning, organizers have added another batch of acts to the bill including an intriguing set from Lotus dubbed Lotus: Talking Heads Deconstructed.

Lotus describes the set as such, “Talking Heads have been a musical inspiration for Lotus from the earliest days of the band’s formation. Both bands evolved in similar fashion, starting as a basic two-guitar rock band and subsequently expanding to include synthesizers, percussion and a host of musical influences. At the heart of Talking Heads’ music are great grooves -many of which pointed toward the basic beats found in dance styles that are still going strong today. For this special set Lotus (and special guests) will be exploring the intersections between the music of Lotus and Talking Heads, rock and dance, old and new.” Sounds great to us!

Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, Orgone, Assembly Of Wine, Crash, Barefoot Truth, The Primate Fiasco, David Gans and Cosmic Dust Bunnies have also been added to the 2014 Gathering Of The Vibes lineup.

Ticket for Gathering Of The Vibes are currently available via the festival’s website.
