The Hudson Project has come to the festival scene with a bang with its initial lineup announcement this week. With an eye towards diversity, the festival has something for everyone that could see a great mix of people traveling to Saugerties, NY come the weekend of July 11th-13th. The headliners for the festival are Kendrick Lamar, Bassnectar, Modest Mouse, and The Flaming Lips. Some of the other big names include, Sound Tribe Sector Nine, Big Gigantic, Moby (DJ set), Matt & Kim, The New Deal, Dr. Dog, Flying Lotus, Lettuce, Infected Mushroom, ZZ Ward, Marco Benevento, Twiddle, and TAUK.
There will be more than 85 acts at the festival on four stages, as well as a fifth performance space, interactive art installations, carnival rides and a game center. All of this with the beautiful Catskill Mountains serving as the backdrop for the festival could wind up being one of the best New York has seen in a while. Taking place where Woodstock ’94 happened gives the festival a little sense of history as well.
The Hudson Project is offering regular, VIP, and luxury camping depending on how you would like to spend the weekend. There are also going to be shuttles and buses running all weekend from various locations in New York. Tickets are on sale now at the festival’s website. Come mid-July, Upstate New York is going to be rocking like it hasn’t in a while.
