Word & Pictures By Jon Irvin
The people over at Shireworks Productions are at it once again bringing the Big Up Festival back for year two! With a lineup sure to wet anyone’s appetite and sporting some of the coolest camping many have ever seen, the Big Up is quickly becoming a jamtronica fans paradise. The festival will take place on the serene Sunnyview Farms in Ghent, NY, July 28-30th.
For year two the Big Up has not only added a 3rd outside stage, but also a Native American village as well as an expanded list of nature based activities which will surely keep everyone busy. If you hurry you can still steal a ticket for $90. With a gate price of $120 the Big Up Festival is one of the best priced events on the circuit.
