Hancock, New York (April 29, 2014) Taking place at the picturesque Camp Minglewood in Hancock, New York September 5th – 7th, 2014, Catskill Chill Music Festival unveils the lineup for their fifth anniversary, once again providing an intimate experience that delivers big name acts up close and personal in a secluded summer camp environment.

Continuing their tradition of offering a unique twist with returning artists, the Chill has announced a number of tribute sets. In addition to their original sets, Turkuaz will pay homage to Sly & The Family Stone and Twiddle will offer up their electric take on Grateful Dead tunes, while Alan Evans’ Playonbrother tackles a set of legendary Cream. We will also see the unveiling of Aron Magner & Tom Hamilton: Acoustic Again at Acoustic Junction.
While the performance schedule alone is reason enough to attend this annual event, it is the intimacy and unique grounds that make Catskill Chill one of the most highly anticipated festivals of the season. With a limited capacity, no campsite is more than a few minute walk to the stages and anyone can make their way up to the front for their favorite sets. Hosted at a secluded performing arts summer camp where childhood dreams merge with the music festival culture, the “Chillfam” as Chill’s loving community have coined themselves, bunk-up in 16-person sleep away camp-style cabins, creating decorated theme camps and hosting late-night jams. Two of the five stages, the intimate Acoustic Junction and the DJ Stage are located in the heart of the campground, filling Camp Minglewood with music of all genres from morning until night. The festival also features free parking, free camping, daily yoga, live art, a farmer’s market, craft and food vendors, a communal bonfire nightly and an open mic.
