Cowclops Productions, HIGH TIMES Magazine and Igor Management bring you the first annual Adirondack Forest Festival, September 23-25 at Moose River Park in Lyonsdale, NY. This year’s inaugural lineup will feature Burning Spear, a rare northeast performance from progressive rap collective Arrested Development, The Slip, Jen Durkin & The Bomb Squad, Sam Kininger Band, Mecca Bodega and More! Up-to-date lineup and band bios can be found at amf2005.com.
With a special focus on Northeast favorites, The Adirondack Forest Festival is unlike any other this festival season. Aside from the festival’s unique lineup, AFF will focus on raising money for Bands For Lands (www.bandsforlands.org), a non-profit organization focused on preserving pristine lands vital to sustain life, through music and creative arts. More than half of the proceeds received from AFF will directly benefit endangered lands in the New York region.
The gorgeous and secluded Moose River Park, which for years hosted the Adirondack Music Festival, was established in 1968 and is located on a spring-fed lake in Lyonsdale NY, part of the 6-million acre Adirondack Park in upstate New York. There is no better place to experience a festival–imagine being serenaded from the lakefront amphitheater as the sun goes down, while basking in your own semi-private campsite. In addition, sports enthusiasts can indulge in whitewater rafting, hiking, biking and swimming, all within the park!
With something for everyone, this year’s Adirondack Forest Festival is not to be missed. Plus, festivalgoers will be doing their part to preserve local endangered land. Act quickly: the first 1,000 tickets are $55, $75 until the 22nd and $90 at the gate. Tickets include weekend camping. For tickets, information and more, visit amf2005.com . See you at the park!
