The festival will offer many other activities for attendees to enjoy such as a late night disco and acoustic sets, 2 disc golf tournaments sponsored by Innova Disc Golf, live painting, yoga sessions, and variety of flow arts workshops.
Many different genres can be heard at Disc Jam ranging from funk to electronica, rap and reggae, and almost everything in between. There is a sound that will surely please any music aficionado. Discovering a new sound to obsess about is inevitable at Disc Jam!
With the release of the schedule all eyes are on Friday and Saturday. Thursday will be headlined by Pink Talking Fish and Strange Machines. Last year Dave Brunyak from Pink Talking Fish smashed his guitar and set it ablaze on stage, as if to give homage to the great Hendrix.
On Friday, Kung Fu will play at 7 after Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, followed by Cappadona, Electron,with late night sets from Dopapod, and Govinda to wrap up the night. A rap veteran placed between the likes of Kung Fu and Electron will be captivating and also serve as a great pallet cleanser.
Saturday will hold another set of Dopapod as well as sets by Congo Sanchez, Consider the Source, Space Jesus, TAUK, lespecial, and a special all-star project Dub Apocalypse featuring members of the Thievery Corporation Live Band and Ed Mann, a 15+ year member of Frank Zappa’s band. That will be one for the record books!
Wrapping up the festival on Sunday is Gubbulidis (Twiddle side project) along with sets from Auqueus, Resin Ed, and Soule Monde, a funk duo consisting of two founding/current members of the Trey Anastasio Band.
