Tom Petty, Steve Miller and Peter Frampton Announced for 2017 Mountain Jam
The 2017 edition of Mountain Jam will take place from June 16-18 at Hunter Mountain in Hunter, N.Y. Today, the festival announced ticket pre-sale information and the first wave of names for the weekend lineup, which includes Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers and the Steve Miller Band (who will each headline a different night), as well as Peter Frampton.
In addition to those three superstars, the festival's organizers confirmed 10 other acts: Gary Clark Jr., Michael Franti & Spearhead, St. Paul & the Broken Bones, the Strumbellas, the Revivalists, White Denim, the Infamous Stringdusters, Elephant Revival, River Whyless and Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real.
The presale will begin tomorrow (Nov. 15) at 10AM ET. To participate, visit MountainJam.com to sign up for the festival's newsletter, and you will receive a code. All requests must be received by midnight tonight. The presale will last only 24 hours, with tickets being offered to the general public beginning Nov. 16 at 10AM ET.
In previous years, Mountain Jam took place the weekend after Memorial Day. This year, organizers moved it back two weeks to mid-June in order to "prevent weather cancellations or delays and increase our chances of sunny days and clear mountain nights," they noted in a press release in September.
Held annually since 2005, Mountain Jam brings together approximately 50 bands from the rock, indie and jam-band worlds across three stages. Last year's version featured such names as Beck, the Chris Robinson Brotherhood and Gov't Mule.
