Primus, Rhythm Devils Lead Gathering of the Vibes ’10

After drawing 20,000 revelers per day to the 370-acre venue last year, the city and festival organizers look to spread more positive Vibes in 2010.  This all-ages, family-friendly event will be held from July 29 to August 1. The festival caters to both weekend campers and single-day guests; both will have access to the park, including its shaded groves, manicured fields and more than a mile of Long Island Sound beachfront.


The initial 2010 lineup includes the reunion of LES CLAYPOOL’S PRIMUS, reggae legend and 2010 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame-inductee JIMMY CLIFF, Grateful Dead’s MICKEY HART and BILL KREUTZMANN’S RHYTHM DEVILS featuring KELLER WILLIAMS, reggae sensation DAMIAN MARLEY with special guest hip-hop icon NAS, pedal steel guitar master ROBERT RANDOLPH & THE FAMILY BAND, New Orleans funk outfit GALACTIC, and many, many more!


Other confirmed artists include Steve Kimock Crazy Engine; Umphrey’s McGee; Beastie Boys’ DJ “Mix Master Mike”; Jackie Greene Band; Little Feat; Martin Sexton featuring The Ryan Montbleau Band; New Riders of the Purple Sage; Donna Jean Godchaux; Dark Star Orchestra; Zach Deputy; Big Sam’s Funky Nation; and Max Creek. The Sunday-night headliner and Green Vibes Stage artist announcements are forthcoming.
