Festival-goers who are looking to escape from the hot city days need to look no further than this summer’s THE HUDSON PROJECT, set in their own backyard. The three-day music and arts festival–the newest entry in the U.S. music festival landscape–is set for July 11, 12 and13 at Winston Farm in Saugerties, New York. THE HUDSON PROJECT will feature the ultimate fusion of over 85 genre-defying musical acts performing on four stages set against the backdrop of the magical Catskill Mountains.
Beyond the music, the inaugural event will feature a fifth interactive performance area at the center of the site highlighting local musical actsand performance artists/troupes; an art village showcasing interactive art exhibitions, regional arts and crafts; a selection of Hudson Valley-area gourmet food, wine, craft beer and specialty cocktail options; a wide range of camping choices from top level luxury accommodations, to pre-set tents with bedding, to DIY choices for the more adventurous attendees; a variety of transportation options: easy-to-use shuttle services from New York City and other nearby major metropolitan areas and local shuttles from nearby train stations.
Additional details–including the line-up and information on tickets–about THE HUDSON PROJECT will be revealed in the coming weeks. THE HUDSON PROJECT is being produced by MCP Presents, a national production, promotion and event management company and SFX Entertainment, a leading producer of live events, media and entertainment content.
“Our goal with THE HUDSON PROJECT was the creation of a music and arts festival that also highlighted the beautiful area where the modern music festival genre was born,” says Brett Keber, Co-Founder/Producer of MCP Presents. “By offering camping with a genre diverse line-up ranging from Rock to Pop, Hip Hop to Electronic and more, we’re hoping to offer a great local option in the U.S. festival market.”
Michael Lang, one of the founder’s of the original Woodstock festival, will represent the landowners in this new venture. “I’m very excited to be bringing live music events back to the Winston Farms and the Saugerties & Woodstock area,” Lang says. “It was always my intention to make a permanent venue at the farm after the ’94 festival and it’s finally coming to fruition. THE HUDSON PROJECT will be a wonderful addition to the valley.”
