The festival will also feature late-night DJ sets from James Murphy and Thievery Corporation’s Rob Garza as well as a Silent Disco.
Gathering of the Vibes has called Seaside Park in Bridgeport, CT home for the past nine years and has become one of the leading music festivals in the Northeast. With roots inspired from the Grateful Dead era, Gathering of the Vibes continues to spread music, peace, and love to concert-goers year after year.
“Our 2013 lineup is a result of sorting through thousands of comments and surveys responses; we hope to deliver an experience that keeps our core fans happy while remaining diverse and current,” commented Ken Hays, festival founder. “It’s a model and approach that works for us.”
