New Nateva Fest Confirms The Flaming Lips, Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi Band
A new music festival will debut this summer over July 4th weekend in Maine. The Nateva Music & Camping Festival will take place from July 2-4 at the Oxford Fairgrounds. The first two acts confirmed for the event are the Flaming Lips and the Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi Band. As for other artists, Nateva pledges to offer “world class artists in the true Jam Band tradition – as well as a sweet mix of Country, Folk, Reggae, Classic Rock and Indie Artists too.” The site features “more than 100 acres of land, dozens of buildings, electricity, lights, bathrooms, RV hookups, water, camping areas and easy parking.” This is not the same facility that hosted the Grateful Dead on July 2nd and 3rd, 1988, as the Nateva site explains, “They performed 3 miles down the road at The Oxford Plains Speedway. This is a much sweeter spot, and not nearly as muddy.” Tickets for the inaugural Nateva Music & Camping Festival are now on sale.
