Vibes In Brideport Through 2012
Bridgeport, CT Mayor Bill Finch will sign a five-year contract with the
Gathering of the Vibes to keep the festival at Seaside Park
through the summer of 2012 (which according to the Mayan calendar and most members of STS9 is when the world will change, anyhow). The annual gathering took place in
Bridgeport in 1999 and 2000, before moving to upstate New York for a
number of years. The Vibes returned to Bridgeport last summer and will
be held in Seaside Park from July 31-August 3 later this summer. The confirmed line-up includes Phil Lesh and Friends, The Black Crowes, Mike Gordon, Sam Bush Band, Kreutzmann Burbridge and Murawski, Derek Trucks & Susan Tedeschi’s Soul Stew Revival, The Neville Brothers, Porter Batiste Stoltz, Assembly of Dust, Dark Star Orchestra, Deep Banana Blackout, Donna Jean & The Tricksters, Jackie Greene Band, New Riders of the Purple Sage, Strangefolk, Ryan Montbleau Band and Zappa Plays Zappa.
