Jay Peak Ski Resort welcomes locals and travelers alike to the fourth annual Jeezum Crow festival.
Nestled in the mountains of the Northeast Kingdom in Vermont, Jeezum Crow has been a staple of the summer music scene in the NEK. Jeezum is a family-friendly event that not only allows concert-goers to enjoy a varied slew of live music, but also allows them to sample many of the area’s great eateries and experience the rich culture of northeast Vermont. A variety of vendors arrive each year to showcase and sell a myriad of products, creating a veritable shakedown street right next to the beautiful slopes of Jay Peak.
In previous years, Dark Star Orchestra has headlined the 3000-person festival, and bands such as The Werks, Aqueous, Percy Hill, Blind Owl Band, Lukas Nelson and Promise of the Real, and Lucid have graced the two stages in the past, with some acts performing in a large amphitheater facing the slopes, and smaller acts performing at the Bullwheel Bar, for many a rowdy, late-night dance party.
This year welcomes for the first time, 90’s rockers Big Head Todd and the Monsters, as headliners. Also for the first time, premier bluegrass band The Infamous Stringdusters will be taking the main stage at the Stateside Amphitheater. Crowd favorites, Rick Redington and the Luv return to Jeezum. This year welcomes eclectic cover-band, Pink Talking Fish, who will no doubt deliver their high-energy take on the music of Pink Floyd, the Talking Heads, and of course, the Phish from Vermont. The Mallett Brothers will also be returning to Jay Peak, however this marks their first time on the roster of the Jeezum Crow festival. Also featured on the lineup for the fourth annual Jeezum Crow festival are: local rocker Seth Yacavone, The Balkun Brothers, Barika, Eric Gales, and Soule Monde. This will be the first year that late-night performances will be held on both nights, rather than only on Saturday.
With the addition of Big Head Todd, the Stringdusters, and Pink Talking Fish, Jay Peak is expecting quite the turnout, as Northeast Kingdom locals and music fanatics far and wide conjoin for two nights of great music and fun on the breathtaking slopes of historic Jay Peak. Come for the music, the food, and the party; stay for the otherworldly, gorgeous scenery. Get tickets here.
