Founded by folk legend Pete Seeger, the family-friendly Clearwater Festival, also known as Clearwater’s Great Hudson River Revival, is both a music and an environmental festival. Seeger started it as a fundraiser for an environmental organization he founded.
“Pete and (his wife, festival co-founder) Toshi both passed away a little over a year ago, but Pete’s legacy of harnessing the spirit of change through the power of song lives on at The Clearwater Festival,” reads a press release announcing the lineup.
The festival runs June 20-21 and will once again take place on the banks of the Hudson River, at Croton Point Park in Croton-On-Hudson.
Early bird tickets are on sale now through March 23 on the festival’s website. Kids 12 and under are free.
