***UPDATED: May 10, 2011***
Equifunk will bring the funk once again to Equinunk, PA from August 19 to 20 this summer. Tickets - priced at $275.00 - include cabin reservation and all you can eat and drink with unlimited beer. Camping passes are now $155.00.
So far, the lineup includes The New Deal, Karl Denson's Tiny Universe, Adam Deitch from Break Science and Pretty Lights, Robert Walter from Greyboy Allstars and Eddie Roberts from The New Mastersounds.
Equifunk promises to be a great weekend in which attendees are being encouraged to "leave your wallet at home." Yep, you read that first line right: food and drink for both days are included in the price of your ticket.
Not only that but, Equifunk boasts a resort-size swimming pool, indoor bathrooms with showers and the option to stay in a private cabin with 10 friends - the ultimate all-inclusive festival experience. There is also the option to buy a camping ticket for the weekend for those who want to save a little money. Camping passes still include all you can eat/drink in the price.
With the recent announcement that The New Deal will not be playing after this year, Equifunk seems like a great place to catch them one last time in a festival setting.

It seems like every time you get on the Interwebs these days a new electronic festival has popped up.
Most of these festivals are all-night ragers where attendees get their fill of highlighter-colored clothing, loud bass music and a plenty of spun-out ragers to dance with. However, it seems that the people at the Snowball Music Festival, taking place in Vail Valley, CO from March 4 to 6 are offering something extra to go with all that bass for your face.
In addition to headlining acts Pretty Lights, Bassnectar and The Flaming Lips, Snowball is offering festivalgoers an opportunity to purchase "Music + Lift" skiing combo tickets in order to experience the natural beauty that Colorado has to offer. For those less inclined to hit the slopes, there will be plenty of music for your ears and eyes to experience.
Local favorites Big Gigantic, Paper Diamond and EOTO are on the bill as are other great indie and electronic acts such as Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Lotus, Local Natives, Portugal. The Man, Michal Menert and 12th Planet. Currently, tickets are $115.00.
The festival just released a free mixtape with tunes from Pretty Lights, Bassnectar and more so if you're looking to get away and start your festival season early, head over to their website, download the mixtape and check out what's in store for this year's "Snowchella," and as always, keep jamming.
Eminem, Arcade Fire, Widespread Panic to Headline Bonnaroo 2011

'Tis the season for festy lineup announcements.
What has been perhaps the most anticipated festival announcement of the season did not disappoint in any way. Taking place in Manchester, TN for its tenth year from June 9 to 12, Bonnaroo has become the premiere event that thousands anxiously awaits each year.
Along with headliners and recent Grammy winners Eminem and Arcade Fire, Bonnaroo has tapped a slew of amazing talent including Widespread Panic, String Cheese Incident, STS9, Girl Talk, Bassnectar and Beats Antique.
Only moments after the line up was announced, the official Bonnaroo website crashed momentarily due to high traffic volume.
What started out as a jam-oriented festival has evolved into something larger - much to the chagrin of jam band purists and mainstream detractors. This year's festival is no different, with diverse hip-hop acts, electronic DJs and indie bands to go along with a few classic rock legends and jam band heroes.

This three-day festival is held in honor of longtime friend of the Florida live music scene, Rachel Morningstar Hoffman, who was notorious for wearing a purple fuzzy hat to concerts.

Tickets are only $45.00 in advance and $60.00 at the gate and include music, camping and all fees.
