Rockland Bergen Music Festival – 6/25 and 6/26 – The German Masonic Fairgrounds (Tappan, NY)

utre_LogoRBMF2016_1The 3rd Annual Rockland-Bergen Music Festival kicks off this year with its biggest lineup yet on June 25th and 26th in Tappan, NY. With two stages, 22 performers, and 15 non-profit organizations on site, the festival is ready to draw an even bigger crowd than the years before. With the intention of encouraging good music and philanthropic pursuits, Joe D’Urso, roots musician and festival founder, has created a safe space for family fun on the borders of two downstate counties. This year, three big-name blues, folk, and rock artists take the stages: Jorma Kaukonen of Jefferson Airplane, the Willie Nile Band, and Southside Johnny & The Asbury Jukes, accompanied by other great local talent.

Because the festival’s main purpose is its generous attitude, those born in 1966 will get in to the festival for free in celebration of their 50th birthday, but others can grab tickets to the festival here. See the whole line-up below:
