Gathering of the Vibes Announces Initial Lineup

Gathering of the Vibes organizers knocked this year’s lineup out of Seaside Park and clear across the Long Island Sound for a grand slam. Rounding out the mid summer festival season with a variety of performances, Vibes promises four days of unique musical experiences and collaborations, friendship renewals and spiritual awakenings – traditional VibeTribe happenings – founded on celebrating the life of Jerry Garcia.

Gathering of the Vibes will return to Bridgeport, CT from July 31 – August 3, 2014. Widespread Panic and John Fogerty are making their first appearances to the festival. As southern rock outfits perfectly suited for the other, on stage collaborations are likely. The biggest surprise to this year’s lineup and perhaps the most talked about is the appearance of the Disco Biscuits featuring Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann. Keeping with the Dead theme, this promises to add an element of unique musical styling and soundscape. Rounding out the Grateful tradition will be performances by Dark Star Orchestra, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead and Keller Williams Grateful Grass.

Completing the spotlight are moe. and Umphrey’s McGee. Other acts set to perform are Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Ziggy Marley, Latin duo Rodrigo Y Gabriella, Left Over Salmon, Rusted Root and many more. A variety of acts put Vibes on track with a special musical experience for its nineteenth year.
