July 21-23—STOCKBRIDGE—NoTown’s 2017 Music Festival will be held over the weekend of July 21-23, from 3-9 p.m. each day. The festival will feature three days of music from area musicians in the Green Mountains of Vermont.
“This year’s theme is ‘the Butterfly Effect’ because it’s the little things that count,” said Chris Lillie, co-founder of NoTown Music Festival. “All of the profits from this event will go to charities who have seen their federal funding cut.”
The charities are: the Stockbridge School PTA; Zack’s Place of Woodstock, Vt.; and the Rutland County Humane Society.
Initial headliners for the festival include: Bow Thayer Band, Sonic Malfunction, Rick Redington & the Luv, Krishna Guthrie, and Oak Totem. More will be announced.
Food vendors will be on site, along with family-friendly activities such as face painting and giant bubbles provided by the Killington Art Garage, and more. Tubing is available on the Tweed River.
The festival will be held at 2056 Rte. 100 (at the junction of Routes 100 and 107) in Stockbridge. Tickets are $35 per day, or $90 for the entire weekend. Children under the age of 18 are admitted free with parents. Camping is available free with the 3-day weekend pass for those wishing to camp for all three days. No glass is allowed on the festival site. For more information, visit notownfestival.com.
