Mountain Jam 2019 will take place in a new location – on the grounds of the gorgeous Bethel Woods Center for the Arts, the home of the historic 1969 Woodstock Music Festival. Mountain Jam will be the first rock n’ roll camping festival on the original Woodstock site in 50 years.
This year also marks the return of Gov’t Mule front man and GRAMMY Award-winning vocalist, songwriter, producer and revered guitarist Warren Haynes as co-presenter of Mountain Jam alongside Radio Woodstock and Live Nation, organizers of Peach Music Festival. Also headlining is the legendary musician, singer songwriter, author, poet, actor, and activist Willie Nelson, who will feature acts from his acclaimed Outlaw Music Festival on the Mountain Jam line-up.
“Mountain Jam has continuously evolved over the past 15 years, growing from a small one day festival to one of the largest annual multi-day rock and camping festivals in the Northeast” said Mountain Jam Founder Gary Chetkof. “It’s a dream come true to present this year’s event at Bethel Woods, one of the most beautiful places to see live music in the country. This year’s Mountain Jam returns to its jamband roots celebrating the musical legacy which started 50 years on this iconic site. We are thrilled to be reunited once again with Warren Haynes to celebrate with our family of bands and fans who have been the heart and soul of Mountain Jam from its inception.”
Warren Haynes, who co-presented Mountain Jam’s first 12 years, said “Having been there for the foundation and development of Mountain Jam including the curation of artists and music over the first 12 years and headlining with Gov’t Mule, Warren Haynes Band, The Allman Brothers Band, Phil Lesh & Friends and sitting in with countless others, I am pleased to be returning for the festival’s 15th anniversary. Mountain Jam is changing its home, but going back to its roots. And I am happy to say that myself and Gov’t Mule will be returning as well. See you in June.”
“We are thrilled to be hosting Mountain Jam at Bethel Woods during the golden anniversary year. It is a wonderful opportunity to bring music, community, and art to the historic site. Mountain Jam will be one of many exciting opportunities to visit us throughout all of 2019 and we are truly looking forward to providing diverse programming for our friends, supporters, and guests from near and far,” said Darlene Fedun, Chief Executive Officer, Bethel Woods Center for the Arts.
