The 2016 Catskill Chill Music Festival will be held Sept. 23 to 25, but it will not return to its original location at Camp Minglewood in Hancock.
The seventh annual Catskill Chill will be held at a new location just over the state line in Lakewood, Pennsylvania, a mere 15 miles from Camp Minglewood. The new home, being dubbed New Minglewood, is a private camp. New Minglewood features the same amenities to which attendees have grown accustomed, such as cabins to rent, covered stage facilities, and free camping. However, there are many new amenities that will be available this year, including indoor movies theaters; indoor and outdoor spaces for yoga, art, and wellness workshops; and closer parking. This will also be the first year the main stage will be completely outdoors.
Catskill Chill founder Dave Marzollo said in a press release:
“New Minglewood felt like home the second we set foot on the campus. Ultimately, we appreciate what the Chillfam has grown to love and we want to continue to provide exactly that – an intimate experience which delivers big name acts up close and personal in a private environment where our ‘all love, all the time’ culture flourishes. We can’t wait to share it with the world.”
Catskill Chill has featured a range of international and regional artists including The Metermen with Page McConnell, Umphrey’s McGee, moe., Yonder Mountain String Band, Lotus, The New Deal, Keller Williams, The Motet, Lettuce, and Galactic.
A limited number of blind faith tickets will go on sale on Thursday, Feb. 4 at 1 p.m. for $150.
