For those of you who don’t know, The Big Up is a New York-based music festival taking place late this summer, on August 8th-10th. After a 1 year hiatus in 2012, the production hase moved its location this year to the Hemlock Hollow Farm in Claverack, NY, and is officially a go for 2013. In 2011, the festival attracted over 5,000 attendees, and over 70 musical acts from all over the world. Judging by their phase 1 announcement, it looks like we can expect more good things for this year!
The Big Up’s “Phase One Acts” include Holy Fuck, Escort, the world premiere of Abakus live band, a DJ set from Chris Keating of Yeasayer, Jojo Mayer & Nerve, host band Higher Organix, Kung Fu, Dopapod, Brothers Past, Normal Instruments and Party Supplies. The festival is saving announcements of their headliners and other artists for later on. These bands definitely make for pretty damn good live show. Here’s that lineup again in a more digestable list format:
“Far Out” weekend tickets will be available tomorrow (Wednesday, March 6th) in limited quantities for $95. Pick up “Far Out” tier 1 tickets and save $25 off the “Countdown” advance weekend price. These will sell out quickly so don’t sleep on this killer bargain! VIP upgrades and RV passes are also available at this time. For tickets please visit http://thebigup.com/
