The lineup for this year’s eighth annual Backwoods Pondfest in Peru, NY was announced Sunday night via Facebook.
All, that is, except for the headliner.
The list of acts is heavily laden with Upstate New York talent – Twiddle, Spiritual Rez, Turquaz, Cabinet, Alan Evans Trio, The Garcia Project, Lucid, The Manhattan Project, Hot Day at the Zoo, Sophistafunk, Aqueous, The Blind Owl Band, Conehead Buddha, Capital Zen, Big Daddy Love, Big Mean Sound Machine, The Big Takeover, Mister F, GUBBILIDIS (Twiddle Duo), Formula 5, Doomfxck, and North Funk Tree.
As it has since the beginning, the festival will take place at Twin Lake Campsite on August 8th and 9th, a tossed apple from Plattsburgh; or, roughly 13 miles south of the college town.
Advanced tickets are on sale now for $70, and will continue to be sold online until August 5th. Afterwards, tickets are advertised to be sold at $85 ($5 off with a non-perishable good) at the time of the show.
