Vibes adds bands to line-up, promises ‘huge artist addition’

The Gathering of the Vibes 2013 lineup already boasts Phil Lesh & Friends, The Black Crowes, Grace Potter & The Nocturnals, Tedeschi Trucks Band, The Roots and James Murphy.

Now, more bands are being added to the annual four-day music festival at Bridgeport’s Seaside Park, including a yet-to-be-announced “huge artist addition.”

The new slate of acts includes Blues Traveler, Steve Kimock with Bernie Worrell, Jason Crosby Band, Twiddle and Von Grey. Festival organizers pointed to June 10 as the date for the next line-up reveal.

The daily schedule for the July 25-28 festival is now available, and all four nights are shaping up to be a blast. However, Saturday, which features The Roots, Grace Potter & the Nocturnals, James Murphy (late night) and a mystery headliner, is likely to attract the biggest crowds.

Meanwhile, Phil Lesh & Friends are set to play Friday and Saturday, with Friday also bringing Tedeschi Trucks Band, Jimkata and Galactic to the Vibes stage. Sunday boasts the Black Crowes, Blues Traveler and Fishbone.

What’s more, the festival kicked off its annual “Road To The Vibes” contest, in which Facebook followers can vote for an up and coming act to play on Thursday.

The festival’s daily schedule is now available, with single day, VIP and weekend camping passes on sale.
