Coming Up: The Seventh Annual Catskill Chill
Join ChillFam, the Catskill Chill family at our new location “New Minglewood,” a private summer camp in Lakewood, PA, Sept. 23-25, 2016. Weekend tickets and VIP packages are on sale at CatskillChill.com. Catskill Chill has been my favorite festival since my first one in 2011. It has the best combination of an intimate medium sized fest but with great bands. There’s camping or cabins, many stages and genres of music, but one thing ties it all together, and that’s the great vibe. This is created from the top down, from entry, security, and top notch planning, everything is designed with the guests as the top priority.
Continuing a tradition of offering a unique twist with returning artists, the Chill also features a number of first-time collaborations and tribute sets. Dopapod and Turkuaz will join forces for Dopakuaz Does Yacht Rock, Pink Taking Fish and Kung Fu will take on the music of Prince and David Bowie, while Particle and The Werks come together as PartiWerks. The weekend will also feature a Chillfam Allstars Michael Jackson Tribute.
For the first time ever, Catskill Chill will host an onsite pre-party at New Minglewood the night before the festival, on Thursday, September 22nd featuring two sets of Twiddle, along with Jimkata, Aqueous and TRAKSTAR.
One of the defining characteristics of Catskill Chill is its unique setting. Hosted at New Minglewood, a private summer camp in Lakewood, PA, the venue has cabins for rent, paved pathways throughout, a beautiful lakefront, covered stage facilities, free parking, and free camping. Additional highlights of New Minglewood include indoor movie theaters, indoor and outdoor spaces for yoga, art, and wellness workshops, an easy-to-traverse campus, and “closer than ever” parking. While the “B Stage” and Club Chill will remain covered venues, this will mark the first year that the Chill will present an outdoor main stage for attendees to enjoy music in the open air, under the stars. The festival also offers a farmer’s market, craft and food vendors, a communal bonfire nightly, and an open mic.
