Gathering of the Vibes is July 31-Aug. 3 at waterfront park
The Gathering of the Vibes music, arts and camping festival will be July 31 to Aug. 3 at Bridgeport’s Seaside Park.
This will be the 19th year for the Vibes, which in recent years has taken place at the waterfront park along Long Island Sound.
The latest round of band additions includes a tribute to the Talking Heads by Lotus, and the New Orleans-based Trombone Shorty and Orleans Avenue.
Lotus, an electronic music band, will explore “the intersections between the music of Lotus and Talking Heads, rock and dance, and old and new,” according to publicity material.
John Fogerty is a headliner
Some of the already announced performers include John Fogerty (formerly of Creedence Clearwater Revival), Widespread Panic, Umphrey’s McGee, moe, Ziggy Marley, and Disco Biscuits featuring the Grateful Dead’s Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann.
Other new additions to the roster include Assembly of Wine (featuring members of Assembly of Dust and God Street Wine), Orgone, Crash, Barefoot Truth, David Gans, The Primate Fiasco, The Funky Dawgz Brass Band, and Cosmic Dust Bunnies (winner of the Road to the Vibes contest).
