:bouncey:  A Bears Picnic is the place

still no location?  wish they'd talk to my friend in Bedford...lots of space, and he's growing his own fest on the property.  next year perhaps?  I'm trying to hit both (Wills Mountain fest) with an Allegany forest camping between this year

Stonehenge!!!Souper Groove! New fest in jersey.. Late september


Souper groove is an awesome li'l fest...some really good music from the tent stage (small stage)....that I hope make it to the main this year but great none the less and an extreme bargain.

Venue small enough to lug your drinks back n forth to the stages or for 10 bucks drink local tap beer all weekend :smile:

Seeing you're from Somerville (original poster).  I'm assuming you're aware of Porchfest this Sat. 5/18??

http://www.somervill...l.org/porchfest

 

I went to Bow Thayer's Tweed River VT festival last year and was blown away by such an amazing time.  Lineup has a hearty boston scene. (mid august)

http://tweedrivermusicfestival.com/

 

You can buy discounted tickets from Tim this weekend @ porchfest btw

The Barnaby's spot in VT is a very chill small gathering - Rockhinghill Music Festival

The Granite State Music Festival in Concord, NH is a real nice time next to the Merrimack River (Non-Camping)

http://granitestatemusicfest.org/

 

 

Below is my weekend schedule for the next couple months

 

Porchfest this weekend

StrangeCreek

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)

 

I agree, some great smaller ones.  Frendly Gathering is a great way to start the summer (missing Mtn jam this year).  Camp Coldbrook was also a great small one last year, and back woods pondfest is great too, love having my own campfire.  wish I had more time, haha.   Catskill Chill is so awesome, love the camp and the cabins. 


My lineup so far for this year...

Frendly Gathering

Phish @ SPAC

VIBES

Catskill Chill

Holidaze
