Kendrick Lamar by Laura Baker-Finch
Saugerties, New York -- The Hudson Project is the newest addition to upstate New York's musical landscape, and judging by its initial lineup release, it's one to look out for.
Over 85 acts have been confirmed thus far, including Kendrick Lamar, Bassnectar, Modest Mouse, Flaming Lips, Moby (DJ set), Flying Lotus, and Big Gigantic. Capital Cities, Bonobo, Excision, and Matt & Kim are just a few other highlights. Scroll down for a look at the full lineup so far.
The festival will take place from July 11-13 at Winston Farm, with four stages set against the backdrop of the beautiful Catskill Mountains. Considering how close the land is to the Woodstock grounds, it comes as no surprise that Michael Lang, one of the founders of the original Woodstock festival, will be representing the landowners in this new event.
MCP Presents (responsible for Camp Bisco, Counterpoint, and Buku, among others) and SFX Entertainment (TomorrowWorld, Mysteryland, Electric Zoo) are the brains behind The Hudson Project, and aim to bring festivalgoers a genre-defying lineup of music along with interactive performances and art exhibitions, carnival rides, and high-end food and drinks.
Tickets go on sale at 11am ET on Friday, April 4. Early Bird tickets start at $185 for a 3-Day GA pass, or $449 for a 3-Day VIP pass. Camping is optional but recommended - Easy Tent packages and Glamping options are also available for those with a padded budget.
