“We’ve spent the entire off-season trying to come up with a festival experience that could one-up the magic we conjured last year. I think what we have in store for 2019 will set the bar so high for next year, I’m already getting nervous thinking about how we’ll top this in 2020.” In their 5th consecutive year at Gardner’s Farm, after moving the festival from Central Massachusetts where it began in 2011, Disc Jam has found a venue that feels like home. Scavone shares, “I truly believe that we have been blessed with the perfect festival grounds, beautiful grass beneath our feet, surrounded by rolling hills with picturesque views in all directions.”

Owner and Founder Tony Scavone says of the 9th installment of the festival: “Disc Jam lineups are constantly evolving, and this year we aimed to curate a lineup that has past audiences eager to return, while appealing to first time attendees with a diverse array of artists.” While he is most stoked for performances by Lotus with Barber and Friends, The Floozies and Ripe, Scavone says “I’m most looking forward to that moment the night before gates open where everyone is finally set up and completely ready to have as much fun as they possibly can tomorrow.”

As the name suggests Disc Jam, this 4-day event features the fast growing sport of disc golf and festival grounds features a 27-hole disc golf course on-site. Disc Golf
Tournaments for men and women are held throughout the weekend, with cash and
prizes from Innova Disc Golf going to the top finishers. Playing at least a round is a
must for Disc Jam enthusiasts and the course encourages both the avid and first timer
players to try their hand on the course. The disc golf courses are available to anyone to use all at no additional cost to play (outside of tournaments) with discs provided free of charge for those interested in entering a tournament, a casual round with friends, or learning how to play for the first time. This year’s tournaments will be hosted by 2019 Team Innova touring pro Nikko Locastro.

VIP packages allow fans to attend Disc Jam in style, with options for either hotel or
condo style rooms at the beautiful Jiminy Peak Ski Resort, just 5 minutes from the
venue. On top of the off-site accommodations, the event offers VIP camping areas and a VIP lounge sponsored by Lagunitas Brewing Company, which includes
complimentary beer for those 21 years or older.

A variety of activities and workshops are a big attraction for Disc Jam, including the Disc Jam Flow Tribe, flow art workshops, daily yoga sessions, interactive music and art installations throughout the festival grounds, plus craft and art vending that make Disc Jam a unique and memorable experience for both new and returning fans.

It's Almost Time for Disc Jam 2018! - UPDATED WITH SCHEDULE!

5/8 - UPDATE!!! THE SCHEDULE IS AVAILABLE! (see the bottom of this post!)

I can't begin to explain how much I am eagerly awaiting Disc Jam this year.

When I found myself really, truly delving into the jam scene, it was for a lot of reasons. I was exploring music I already had a deep love for, I was exploring bands that my husband admired and helped to shape him, I was branching out in my music tastes out of my own curiosity about what I was missing, I was seeking a far more detailed understanding of the players who could go beyond a simple song and instead weave a whole story on the spot, but mostly I was seeking something much deeper for myself. I was seeking a peace that I desperately needed and just wasn't finding anywhere. 
I have always felt deeply connected to the music that I loved and while I have been writing about music for 8 years, I lost much of the connection that I used to feel. My love for the music remains strong, but as stupid as it feels to put this in words…

Digging Hard On The Heavy Pets - Strawberry Mansion

One of the things I have grown to love so much about the jam scene is just how much you can find within it. I used to be one of those people that assumed that "Jam Band" meant Grateful Dead ripoff band or tired cover band trying to do again and again what has already been done. I had no idea how many levels there were to the scene. I had no idea how many scenes existed within the scene and despite that, how inclusive it was to anyone who wanted to come inside and be a part of it. I am constantly finding something to to be excited about, and even better, to be completely taken aback by. Enter The Heavy Pets.

I was really excited when I first heard that The Heavy Pets had a new record. I won't lie and say I am any kind of long-term fan of the band because truth be told, I am still wetting my feet in their pool of awesome that has been steadily filling for about the last decade. However, over the last year more and more of their songs have been dropping into my mixes and I…

Wig Party and Bee: Gearing up for the Bakers Dozen Pre-Show - American Beauty July 30th

I'm new to the whole Phish thing. At no point in time did I ever think I would be headed to a Phish show during the Baker's Dozen run at Madison Square Garden. I was that person who made fun of Phish fans. Then I married into the jam scene and my world completely changed. It was gradual. My readers have been beaten over the head with the concept on more than one occasion but to me, honestly is key. I can't write honesty about music unless I tell you honestly how I came to find it. In this case, I had to have my music mind shaken upside down for a few years.
Father's Day this year, I surprised my Phish Head husband with tickets. I had asked him, could he see any show during the run, which would he want to see? July 30th, he says. "Its a Sunday. You NEVER miss a Sunday Phish show." I still don't know what this means, but people keep saying it to me. I look forward to finding out. In addition, he wanted to check out the pre-party happening that day at Ameri…
