Steve & Jeff Simon and Radio Woodstock will present BLUESTOCK 2011, a major 3-day Blues festival featuring top Blues artists at Hunter Mountain Ski Center over the weekend of August 26th, 2011.
BLUESTOCK 2011 will be a mega-Blues event bringing together a wide variety of great performers that represent all aspects of Blues music. The line-up of talent will read like a veritable “who’s who” of Blues and Blues-rock legends and up-and-coming stars.
At the first annual BLUESTOCK, there will be two stages that will provide non-stop music throughout the weekend with an amazing all-star Blues jam on Friday and Saturday nights and a late night “Blues Club” that will keep the music going well into early morning hours.
BLUESTOCK 2011 will also feature an array of attractions including a mountain Skyride and New York Zipline Adventures with canopy zipline tours and North America’s longest zipline.
Hunter Mountain provides the perfect natural environment for BLUESTOCK 2011 with breath-taking mountain views amidst rolling green valleys and hills. Hunter Mountain is easily accessible from anywhere in the Northeast. Hunter Mountain’s proximity to New York City and other major Eastern cities makes BLUESTOCK 2011 a great summer vacation destination for Blues lovers.
The Hunter Mountain Ski Lodge provides BLUESTOCK 2011 attendees with 24-hour access to both food and indoor bathrooms. Along with on-site tent camping and an RV area, BLUESTOCK 2011 offers a variety of alternative accommodations including nearby hotels, lodges, local vacation homes and mountainside condominiums including luxury suites at Hunter’s Kaatskill Mountain Club. BLUESTOCK 2011 offers other first class amenities such as on-site taxis and a special VIP Lounge with gourmet food.
Radio Woodstock and Steve & Jeff Simon Presents are both seasoned festival promoters. Radio Woodstock produces the annual Mountain Jam Festival which, in its short 6 year history, has become one of the top festivals in the country and the premier music festival in the Northeast.
“This is a great next step for us. We have wanted to promote another annual music festival and co-promoting a Blues festival with Steve & Jeff Simon is the perfect scenario”, said Gary Chetkof, Founder and President of Radio Woodstock.
Steve & Jeff Simon have been producing Blues festivals around the world since 2000 including the St. John Blues Festival, the St. Thomas Blues Festival, the Charleston Blues Festival and BLUZAPALOOZA, the celebrity Blues concert tours for U.S. Troops in Iraq, South Korea, Japan, Egypt, Italy and Kuwait. Also in 2011, Steve and Jeff will be bringing the Blues to Cuba with their inaugural and historic Blues Without Borders concert tour. From the company’s inception, Steve and Jeff’s focus has been to create new audiences for the Blues all over the world.
Steve Simon commented, “BLUESTOCK 2011 is our vision of ‘Woodstock meets The Blues Cruise’…….3 days of non-stop world-class Blues entertainment in a magical outdoor setting. BLUESTOCK 2011 is destined to be the greatest Blues show on earth.”
BLUESTOCK 2011 will be a 3-day event with music starting on Friday evening August 26th and ending early Sunday evening August 28th.
