Our 3rd year of Disc Jam is going to be our best yet!

Disc Jam Music Festival is coming in hot, offering more than ever in 2013. Centrally located in scenic town of Brimfield, Massachusetts, just 1 hour away from major cities like Boston, Providence, Hartford and Albany the festival is the perfect location for celebrating Northeast's diverse and thriving music scene.

A picturesque piece of New England property that has well groomed grass, majestic pines and gravel trails throughout the campground, the venue makes for the perfect home for Disc Jam. Combine that with the Hyland Farm, Orchard and Disc Golf Course, the host to the disc golf tournaments held daily on Saturday and Sunday. It is also home to Pioneer Brewing Co an amazing local microbrewery as well as a petting zoo, hiking trails, working apple orchard and of course the 36 hole championship caliber disc golf course.

Entering year number 3 Disc Jam still embraces the small festival vibe while drawing big names from New York City, Boston, Connecticut, Rhode Island and beyond. This year will prove to be another unforgettable gathering of creators and celebrators of some of the best in the live music scene today. The Disc Jam family is proud to present another stellar musical line up, with performances from acts like:

Two stages deliver non-stop music from early in the day to well into the night. After the headlining acts, the attention and energy is quickly transferred back to the stage, where a very unique silent disco will provides the possibility to see and hear yet even more live music..just not the traditional way of amplifiers and speakers cranking volumes across the concert field. Silent Disco allows the music to continue without the sound! How do you ask? Find yourself asking 'what is a silent disco?' for those who have yet to partake in the latest bridge between live music and technology we will try and explain..

Silent Disco is where the entire crowd wears headphones that we provide to you. The music played on stage is transmitted simultaneously to the crowd wirelessly to the headphones, so that if you were to take off your headphones you would not be able to hear them playing!

Put them back on and you are quickly transformed back into the sonic bliss that is Silent Disco! It's pretty wild, think of watching a new 3D movie in the theater for the first time, but this is audio performed live by bands on stage in front of you. Yes we said bands! full bands with drummers and full instruments, not just DJ's and producers oh but don't worry we will have some of the hottest ones performing silent disco sets too! They will provide high energy music for those looking to party well into the wee hours of the night.

Silent Disco not for you? We will also feature a 'secret' Acoustic Stage set up in the heart of the campground, this stage opts for a completely different late night vibe with some of the areas most smokin pickers in all the land playing out under the stars for hours on end. Bluegrass, folk, to straight up acoustic mayhem will all be going down after hours for everyone to enjoy. All the while allowing those looking to wind down at their campsites with friends the opportunity to do so.

There will be a designated Family Camping and R/V sections available as well as a hula hoop workshop, an artist collective hosted by Funky Stuff, where we are asking anyone who wants to bring paint, canvases, and installation art to the festival to collaborate with other artists throughout the weekend to create

Of course, we will again have a ton of kids activities that will keep the little ones busy while mom and dad can lay out a blanket including free face painting, a stilt walker, childrens art center along with a few other treats on Sunday afternoon to make father's day that much more memorable and for families to enjoy the sunshine and not worry about the kids keeping them from responsibly enjoying themselves, we got you mom n dad :)

2013's version of Disc Jam comes complete with all the fixins’ of years past including our Disc Golf tournaments, a host of vendors selling some of the most creative and unique dry goods and hot yummy meals, to disc golf products, clothing apparel.

If you haven't had the opportunity to play the disc golf course yet you need to check it out! Hyland Disc Golf Course is hands down the area's top course with a great mix of wooded shots to big bombers that take you through out the picturesque apple orchard.

A special night-time glow round of disc golf is being hosted by the Devens Disc Golf Team that will take place Saturday night starting at 9pm at Hyland Disc Golf Course.

Saturday June 15th's Tournament is a 2 round singles tourney in 3 divisions; pro, AM and women.
$1,000.00* to the 1st place in the Pro division
$500* for the top AMateur finisher.
$100* for the top women finisher.
(*if we sell all 72 spots, if not prizes and payouts will be adjusted accordingly)

Sunday June 16th's tournament will be a 1 round mixed doubles event.
$1,000.00* to the 1st place in the Pro division
$500* for the top AMateur finisher
$100* for the top women.
(*if we sell all 72 spots, if not prizes and payouts will be adjusted accordingly)

Cash prizes for the top 10 in each division will be paid out. Some of the AM and Women's division prizes will be supplemented with some cool non-cash prizes like discs, bags, travel baskets, t-shirts, hats and more!

Early morning group yoga sessions and wellness workshops will help get those sore legs and backs feeling their best for the long days of dancin, discin and hoopin.

Unlike many major festivals, Disc Jam does not offer VIP ticket options that keep people separated by status. Existing at the nexus of big names, intimate stages, and clean vibes, the result is a strong chance your favorite musicians from the weekend will be hanging out along side patrons, other performers, staff members, parents, volunteers and even our security team as we all become one for the weekend.

This year we hope to see many new faces alongside our current disc jam fam from the past two years. Stay tuned as we release the rest of the lineup, schedule and save the date! and start planning with your crew of friends for an event that is sure to add to your favorite festival memories.

Kids are more than welcome at Disc Jam and are FREE under 12 years old and must be accompanied by an adult. We have a number of families that come for the day or spend the weekend with us so don't worry about packing up the entire fam for the road trip!

So they changed the camping situation since they first announced the festival this year?

When they initially came out with the lineup I asked about camping and having to be shuttled to and from the stages.

Now I see you say that this is not the case?

Yeah no more shuttle. Kind of bummed because hyland farm is awwwwesome. Bomb beer and goats to pet, awesome dg course. Now ill have to be sober to head over.

The campground is cool but nowhere near as fun as Hyland. I do wonder what they will do for staging etc. Hyland has a huge open pavilion that serves that sized festival perfectly.

psyched for discjam!

I was talking to a guy who helps organize this. Sounds great. Apparently my friend Laura runs family camp there. How family friendly is it really? Worm tests are about as sketch as I'll let my kids around

This will be the first year with family camping (of any size and note anyway) but if Laura is running it I'm sure it will be cool. Looking at the map they have family camp nestled behind the vendors far from the sketch.

That's too bad mama kel, with Gregoir busy scamming his insurance company for free no2 that weekend overall sketchieness should be reduced significantly. Though overall headieness will also suffer :(

Oh what a time! Some minor drainage issues, mostly remedied by Saturday. A distinct poopy smell at the main stage. Aside from that, excellent festival! Silent disco was great, included live bands, not just button pushers. Space Jesus was a fun button pusher. Also an "acoustic" latenight stage. Sometime the "acoustic" stage had a generator and amplification. Lots of good energy throughout late night. Much less night time creepy sketch than Strange Creek. Music went till 7am or so. Started back up before noon. 


So many great bands, lots of collaborations. I'll post a few sets here, theres lots I missed so I'll be combing through them. 


That Scavone character, despite himself, throws a pretty bitchin festival.

Was it as wooktastic as a read about on PT?  Sometime Biscuits kids can be a bit overdramatic as they really hate the GDF wooks.

It really wasn't that wooktastic. Very dopapodcentric, lots of people I see at shows. Not tons of those extra grimy rude and mean types you find at on Vibes shakedown or (from what I understand) GD lots. Everyone seemed to be partying relatively responsibly too. 


What were the gripes on PT?

That it was dirty and wooktastic topped off by barber being wasted and sounding like shit

Ahh yeah I only caught a bit of kick rocks, wasn't terribly impressed. I got more enjoyment out of the fact Barber was opening for Dopapod.


It was muddy for sure, we got a couple days of rain prior. The free ice from last year disappeared, replaced by $5 bags from the strangecreek soda guy. That was grimey as fuck.


We had a pretty good camp spot, as far from the stage as you could get out in the woods. Maybe thats why I didn't encounter so much wookage. Is anyone without a flatbrim that has a beard a wook to these people?
