Backwoods Pondfest to Feature Pink Talking Fish Tribute to Bowie

Pink Talking Fish paying tribute to David Bowie will headline the 10th year of Backwoods Pondfest. Also appearing be will the Nth Power, two sets of local band Blind Owl Band and Thunder Body, among others.

More acts will be announced soon, and promoters promise a “special surprise to help us celebrate our 10th year.”

Plattsburgh-based band Lucid is normally the host band of the annual festival, but we’ll see if they’ll be added to the lineup, as the band recently announced that they have decided to stop touring once their scheduled string of dates wraps up on April 16.

The festival will take place Aug. 5 and 6 at the Twin Ponds Campsite in Peru, New York, near Plattsburgh. Blind faith tickets have been on sale since January.
