I'm sure everyone is excited for Vibes this year! Since it is such a large event it may be the only big festival I go to this year. I like to mix it up with small scale local festivals around the northeast. What are some of the small festivals you are interested in? I've already got tickets to Frendly Gathering (and Vibes of course). Any other suggestions?

This forum would be an excellent place to perhaps have a thread going for stuff life this, for newbies and ding dongs such as myself...

 

I'm in Albany, and I know there's tons of shit that happens around here all the time, and I have no idea about it, nor do I know where to look.... (hint, wink, poke Albany folks...) :)

Strange Creek but I go much more for the company then the lineup

 

Big Up looks solid with a lot of acts you don't normally see on the festival scene.

 

I love Bella Terra but their initial lineup is total weak sauce hopefully they will announce some good headliners.

You are more then welcome to go out with me in Albany sometime but I mostly see music of the untzy variety.  The 3 places that would probably interest you for music are Red Square, The Bayou Cafe and Valentines.  :)

Why thank you, I just might take you up on that offer. As long as it isn't country twang with line dancing, I'm good with seeing whatever. I heard Valentine's was sketchy... I reckon that's why you dig it? ;)

Ok, fair enough, I'm just lazy/daft! :lol: Plus, a lot of these are not in the neighborhood, if one wanted to have a few drinks. Sux driving back at who knows when in the a.m. from far away....

Is Kia a boardie, or someone I have to randomly start talking to? With the help of a couple beers, I will randomly talk to anyone in earshot, but if it's someone I "know", that would help me in the right direction! :lol:

 Ya know, there's probably not a whole lot of people who would randomly pinch someone's ass, per request of someone else, but you just so happen to be talking to one of those people!!! :rolling:

I'd highly recommend Rockinghill Festival but it's same weekend as Friendly Gathering 

They're not exactly "small" but Strangecreek Campout and Wormtown are a blast.

Also not exactly "small" but awesome: Catskill Chill

Camp Coldbrook

Backwoods Pond Fest

Bella Terra (usually have a 50/50 split of bands and knuckleheads with laptops and strobe lights)
