Backwoods Pondfest will return to the Twin Ponds Campsite in Peru, New York, for its 10th consecutive year. The festival will take place on Aug. 5 and 6 . The first round of lineup announcements for the festival are expected sometime in February.
Backwoods Pondfest takes place in a woodland area just south of Plattsburgh. The February announcement will also include additional details about non-musical festival activities including workshops, arts, entertainment and vendors.
Before the announcement, a limited number of “blind faith” tickets will be for sale online. Traditionally, these tickets have sold out each year and festival organizers encourage anyone wanting to take advantage of the lower ticket price to act fast.
The festival has historically included more than 20 different artists featured on two different stages. The 2015 lineup for the festival was made up of a diverse grouping of artists including Particle, supergroup The Ex-Presidents, The Heavy Pets, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, Gratefully Yours and a solo appearance from Mihali Savoulidis of Twiddle.
