Pleasantville Music Festival will once again return to Parkway Field in Pleasantville, NY on Saturday, July 11, 2020. The festival has become a not-to-miss summer event throughout the area. The Pleasantville Music Festival, known as New York’s Backyard Jam, has food and drink, a warm positive vibe, and of course, world-class rock. Intended to be a family affair, it offers activities for all ages.
Since its inception in 2005, the Pleasantville Music Festival has brought world-famous artists and breaking national acts together with local up-and-comers. In 2019, the near-capacity crowd enjoyed performances by national acts such as Everclear, Soul Asylum, Aimee Mann and Matthew Sweet. This past year’s festival also welcomed NYC-based newcomers, Bailen, Nashville’s The New Respects, Peekskill’s Dean Friedman (of ‘Ariel’ fame), local favorite Alex Cano, along with several other regional artists. The three winners of Battle of the Bands competition; Lillimure, Mosa, and SpitPhyre, were also given spots in the lineup.
