Included in the updated list is festival favorite Michael Franti & Spearhead, Grammy nominees The Lumineers (UL review here), the dynamic duo of Big Gigantic (UL interview here) and Jersey-based punk/alternative rockers The Gaslight Anthem are among the bands added to this year’s bill.
Reacting to the overwhelming fan requests, Mountain Jam has added Michael Franti & Spearhead to the lineup. Franti’s sets at Mountain Jam are always a highlight marked by high energy dancing, jumping, and weather-altering positive vibrations!
Big Gigantic will make a return to Mountain Jam this June and perform a very special late night set on Thursday, June 6th. The instrumental livetronica, hip-hop and jazz duo performed at Mountain Jam in 2011 and recently played in Upstate New York Rochester (UL review here) and Albany (UL review here).
