Legendary bassist and founding member of the Grateful Dead, Phil Lesh, will bring his all-star side project Phil Lesh & Friends back to Mountain Jam for a headlining performance featuring 2 sets of classic Grateful Dead music. Lesh has assembled a special group of friends for this year’s Mountain Jam including Warren Haynes and John Scofield on guitar, Joe Russo (Furthur) on drums, and Jeff Chimenti (Furthur, The Dead, RatDog, Les Claypool) on keyboards. 2013 marks Phil Lesh’s first time back to Mountain Jam since his 2007 appearance.

Mule’s 2-set performance is consistently a festival highlight, featuring classic and deep cuts from the band’s arsenal of rock ‘n’ roll tunes, as well as astounding covers.
Rounding out Mountain Jam’s 2013 headliners is Primus, performing at Mountain Jam for their first time and fronting the festival’s expanded Thursday night programming. Joining Primus on Thursday is Rubblebucket and a yet to-be-announced late-night electronic band.
