Goose has announced new “Fred” festival. The festival will take place on August 20-22, 2021 in Arrington Virginia on LOCKN’ Farm.
Goose is a band that fluidly travels through genres but generally makes its way back to the Indie-Groove sound. The band hails from Connecticut and is made up of Rick Mitarotonda on vocals and guitar, Peter Anspach on vocals, keys, and guitar, Trevor Weekz on bass, Ben Atkind on drums, and Jeff Arevalo on vocals, percussion, and drums. They recently just released their newest album on June 4, 2021 titled Shenanigans Nite Club.
Goose was supposed to perform at LOCKN’ last year for the first time but unfortunately couldn’t when the festival was cancelled due to COVID-19. Goose’s Peter Anspach spoke on the festival and their experiences not getting to take the stage at LOCKN’ saying, “Last year, we were booked at LOCKN’ and we were so excited to perform on that legendary stage for the first time. We were all pretty disappointed after the festival was canceled so it’s an honor to be invited back to the farm for our own event. Along with an amazing lineup of incredible bands, we have a ton of surprises planned and we can’t wait for all of you to #getinvolved.”
The Fred festival’s line up includes Goose, Dawes, Dr. Dog, Cory Wong, Hiss Golden Messenger, Grateful Shed, aGOOSEtic Trio, Vasudo, Sammy Rae & The Friends, and Elephant Proof.
Tickets went on sale on Friday, June 4, 2021. Tickets for both day passes and weekend camping passes are available. The festival is also hosting Yoga, hiking, and team activities throughout the festivities.
