On Monday, February 4, the organizers of Mountain Jam informed management at Hunter Mountain that, after fourteen years of hosting the multi-day music soiree, this year’s festival will not be taking place at Hunter Mountain.

Last year’s headliners included Jack Johnson, with previous acts including Beck, My Morning Jacket, Robert Plant, the Allman Brothers and Tom Petty in 2017, four months before his passing. Michael Franti and Warren Hayes, both staples of the Mountain Jam scene, were not part of last year’s event.

On Wednesday, festival organizers announced the 2019 Mountain Jam will now be held at Bethel Woods on June 13-16. Artists announced so far include: Willie Nelson & Family, Gov’t Mule, The Avett Brothers, Michael Franti & Spearhead, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead, Amy Helm, The Big Takeover and Marco Benevento.

While we are disappointed to see the festival move, we would like to extend our most sincere gratitude to the many supporters who made Hunter Mountain a successful Mountain Jam venue for more than a decade, including our loyal customers, the Town of Hunter and Greene County.
