Mountain Jam Lineup for Bethel Woods Announced


After 14 years at Hunter Mountain, NY, Mountain Jam is getting a new location in 2019: Bethel Woods Center for the Arts, the site of the original Woodstock (and where Live Nation’s unofficial Woodstock 50th anniversary festival, Bethel Woods Music and Culture Festival, will be held). Festival founder Gary Chetkof confirmed the location change with Poughkeepsie Journal, and Hunter Mountain posted on Facebook, saying, “while we are disappointed to see the festival move, we would like to extend our most sincere gratitude to the many supporters who made Hunter Mountain a successful Mountain Jam venue for more than a decade.”

Mountain Jam may be in a new location this year, but after going in an increasingly indie rock direction, the 2019 Mountain Jam lineup is a return to the festival’s jam band roots. Co-founder Warren Haynes‘ band Gov’t Mule are playing again after taking the past two years off, and the lineup also includes Willie Nelson & Family, The Avett Brothers, Toots & the Maytals, Michael Franti & Spearhead, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead, Marco Benevento, Alison Krauss, Twiddle, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real, Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe, Amy Helm, The Allman Betts Band, The Nude Party, Tyler Ramsey and more.
