EastBound Throwdown Returns to Irwin Farm in September

Eastbound Throwdown returns to the Irwin Farm in Salem, NY, for the third straight year. The festival will be held Sept. 7 and 8.

Greenwich-based band Eastbound Jesus hosts the festival along with help of Greg Bell of Guthrie/Bell Productions and the Irwin family. Eastbound Jesus has headlined the festival each year. A full lineup will be announced later this spring, according to a press release.

The festival features two days of music with two nights of camping. The lineup in the past has featured local and regional favorites that appeal to fans of Americana, bluegrass, roots and rock music.

In 2017, the festival grew to add a second stage between the main stage acts. And each year, the number of bands on the lineup has increased.

The festival is known for its grassroots and hometown feel, according to the release. Eastbound Jesus built the stages at the farm and the event includes local vendors and friends and family as volunteers to staff the event.

The festival is family friendly and all ages are welcome. Blind Faith tickets go on sale on April 2 for two day passes.

For tickets or more information, visit the festival’s website or Guthrie/Bell Productions.
