After nearly a three year hiatus, jam-rockers moe. has revealed moe.down will return in 2017. moe.down 16 will be held at Snow Ridge Ski Resort in Turin, New York over the Fourth of July Weekend: June 30 – July 2.
Hosts and headliners moe. will play a total of seven sets over the course of the weekend. Expect the lineup to be announced in the coming weeks and months. “To me, moe.down has always been a mix the best ‘laid back, friends and family, backyard throw downs.’ Musical and non-musician loved ones come from all over and as a result, we all have this special atmosphere where everything is better. Friends revel, everyone gets together with almost a singular communal purpose and the band reflects that onstage throughout the weekend. I look forward to having that back again this year and hopefully many more to come!” guitarist Chuck Garvey said. “My favorite memories are of the amazing musicians that we get to share the stages with every year. Ha Ha The Moose, too.”
moe. threw their first moe.down in 2000 and Snow Ridge has hosted the vast majority of the first 15 installments of the festival. The eclectic lineup of past moe.down performers includes: The Black Keys, Gary Clark, Jr., Cracker, TV On The Radio, Amos Lee, Ani DiFranco, Galactic, The Avett Brothers, Umphrey’s McGee, Grace Potter, Levon Helm w/Bob Weir, Cake, Ween, Perry Farrell’s Satellite Party, The Roots and many more.
Organizers announced, “2017 will see moe.down returning to its roots. Originally conceived as a weekend reunion the band could host for their friends, family and musical cohorts, the festival will once again focus on moe. and the extended famoe.ly. moe.down 16 will keep all of your favorite moe.down pastimes, but try to add some mo’ moe. and a little less stress.” New options for attendees will include layaway payment plans and an enhanced VIP experience including downloads of every moe. set, golf cart escort upon arrival and a commemorative laminate.
A limited number of Early Bird tickets, Early Bird VIP passes and RV Passes will go on sale this Friday, December 16 at noon ET. Head to moe.org/festival for more information.
