Our very favorite Northeast camp-out festival has just announced a killer lineup for 2012. Mountain Jam returns for its 8th year to the green slopes of Hunter Mountain in the beautiful Catskills of New York State. Taking the stage alongside hosts [lastfm]Warren Haynes[/lastfm] and [lastfm]Gov’t Mule[/lastfm] are such luminaries as [lastfm]Steve Winwood[/lastfm], [lastfm]The Roots[/lastfm], [lastfm]Gary Clark Jr.[/lastfm], [lastfm]Charles Bradley[/lastfm] and [lastfm]Michael Franti & Spearhead[/lastfm]. Joining those names will be [lastfm]GIVERS[/lastfm], [lastfm]Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe[/lastfm], [lastfm]Dawes[/lastfm], [lastfm]Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue[/lastfm] and many more (including special late-nite sets!). Click through for the full initial lineup, and keep an eye on the ticket on-sale dates as camping spots sell out fast.
Hunter Mountain is closer to most Northeast cities than you might think. Check it out Google-maps-style and see for yourself.
