Before I’d heard of Coachella, before I’d moved out of my parents’ house, back when all my friends were cooler than me, there was Mountain Jam, and everyone except me went. The most exciting (read: only) festival the Catskills has to offer, Mountain Jam is now in its 11th year. By now, they’ve settled into a standard formula: trees + hippies + jam bands + mountains = Mountain Jam. What’s not to love?

This year’s lineup is a bit more mainstream, with headliners The Black Keys, Robert Plant and the Alabama Shakes, plus a helluva lot more. Of the new lineup and the festival’s long-standing success, founder Gary Chetkof said,”We left last year’s Festival feeling really great that we had grown so much in the festival’s first ten years and honestly, didn’t know how we would top 2014. The artist lineup for 2015 is truly phenomenal and diverse and definitely solidifies our place as the premier camping music festival in the Northeast.”
