2 music festivals are coming to Arrowood Farms https://m8d.org/2-music-festivals-are-coming-to-arrowood-farms/ Mon, 16 May 2022 14:54:29 +0000 https://m8d.org/2-music-festivals-are-coming-to-arrowood-farms/ Hudson Valley music fan Scott A.

Hudson Valley music fan Scott A. Mackenzie of Ulster County is looking forward to two upcoming music festivals at Arrowood Farms in Accord, about a 20-minute drive from his home in Stone Ridge.

“It’s local,” says Mackenzie, who will be joined by his wife at Soil Farmers Festival May 21 and follow the arrow June 18. “I like the little ones, I like the intimate ones. I love natural environments. Having live music in nature, on a farm, that, for me, is perfect.

Arrowood is a brewery farm that grows its own hops. It also houses a distillery, a bar, a tasting room and an outdoor stage that can accommodate 1,000 people.

The farm’s two late-spring festivals build on the agriculture, tourism, open space preservation, and family entertainment that Arrowood is known for.

“What we’re trying to do with our food and beverage program, and what we’re trying to do with the festivals, is bring people back to a sense of community, and come back to that sense of agriculture and camaraderie,” says Jacob. Meglio, co-founder and managing partner of Arrowood Farms.

The local flavor of both festivals is underscored by the organizations presenting the events: both are partnerships between Arrowood Farms and Ulster-based Impact Concerts. In collaboration with Impact and Arrowood, Levon Helm Studios in Woodstock presents the Dirt Farmer Festival, while Ulster County keyboard genius Marco Benevento presents Follow the Arrow.

The Dirt Farmer Festival invokes the legacy of Levon Helm, the band’s late drummer who grew up on a cotton farm in Arkansas and titled his 2007 Grammy-winning comeback album “Dirt Farmer.” Helm lived in Woodstock for decades.

This gathering will feature lineup that includes Mavis Staples; Helm’s daughter, Amy; and the Midnight Ramble Band, which includes members of the Levon Helm Band. Jackson Browne, Amy Helm and the Midnight Ramble Band performed at the first Dirt Farmer Festival in 2018.

Benevento, the headliner of Follow the Arrow, developed a loyal following and also performed with Phil Lesh of the Grateful Dead and Trey Anastasio and Mike Gordon of Phish. Benevento is also a member of Joe Russo’s Almost Dead, a Grateful Dead tribute ensemble that will perform at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center on August 25. Karina Rykman, the Slip and Mikaela Davis & Southern Star are among the other artists performing Follow the Arrow.

“Marco,” says Mackenzie, “is talented beyond talent.”

Notable names taking the stage at Arrowood will be anchored at a site that Meglio says is designed for year-round family comfort and enjoyment. The farm is open year-round, and Meglio says it caters to families with a closing time of 9 p.m. during the week and 10 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. And while mum and dad have a drink, the kids can watch the chickens on the farm or play on an idle tractor. There is also a corn hole, a pond, picnic tables and hammocks. An outdoor pavilion bar and kitchen are open from March to December.

Meglio, who grew up in Accord and graduated from the State University of New York at New Paltz, says Arrowood prioritizes local ingredients for its beer and spirits, and contracts with local farms to culture after learning what works locally.


“Our mission,” he says, “is to produce great beer and spirits, showcase local ingredients, and showcase local agriculture.”

Music festivals get over $27m in Northern Territory budget https://m8d.org/music-festivals-get-over-27m-in-northern-territory-budget/ Sun, 15 May 2022 23:59:38 +0000 https://m8d.org/music-festivals-get-over-27m-in-northern-territory-budget/ The Northern Territory budget allocated $27.9 million to six festivals.

The Northern Territory budget allocated $27.9 million to six festivals.

These include BASSINTHEGRASS, Darwin Festival, Parrtjima – A Festival in Light, Desert Festival, and Katherine and Darwin Pride festivals.

The National Indigenous Music Awards, which announced their return in physical form this week, are part of the Darwin Festival.

Support for these musical events is part of the Government of the Northwest Territories’ $86.4 million strategy to generate tourism revenue and reduce spending by holiday visitors between 1.46 billion and $1.79 billion by 2030.

Each event offers tourism experiences and NTs.

BASSINTHEGRASS attracts 16,000 punters, half of them outside the Territory.

Held May 21 at Mindil Beach, performers include Hilltop Hoods, Jessica Mauboy, Teskey Bros, Peking Duk, Xavier Rudd, Dune Rats, G Flip, Boy & Bear, Montaigne and Dope Lemon.

Last year it generated $14.5 million for the Northern Territories economy, including $12 million in new money.

Its VIP package includes dining experiences, a harbor cruise and a visit to Litchfield National Park.

Major Events Minister Natasha Fyles said: “BASINTHEGRASS has long been a rite of passage for Territorians, and now so is interstaters, having firmly earned its place on the national music festival calendar.

“This means that more and more people are visiting the territory to attend BASSINTHEGRASS, with huge benefits for the local tourism and hospitality industries in particular. But of course these benefits trickle down to our economy, the associated industries also reaping the rewards.”

Parrtjima – A Festival in Light 2022, organized by Northern Territory Major Events Company (NTMEC) and produced by Creative Directors AGB Events, took place April 8-17 in Alice Springs.

It attracted 23,000 people with an economic impact of $11.5 million in its seventh year.

Nearly $10 million was new to the region.

“Over the years, Parrtjima has continued to develop and grow, providing more and more reasons for people to visit the Red Center from all over Australia,” said NTMEC CEO Tim Watsford.

The Darwin Festival is held August 4-21 featuring local, national and international artists through music (including Arlo Parks and Confidence Man, and a live performance of Gurrumul’s latest album “Djarrimirri” by Yolŋu dancers and singers), comedy, dance, cabaret, theater and visual arts.

The 14th Annual National Indigenous Music Awards, on Saturday August 6 at the Darwin Amphitheater, has so far announced sets from Thelma Plum and King Stingray.

He returns after “two long, difficult years of false starts, virtual ceremonies, zoom calls and spotty service,” organizers said.

“The awards have always been a great place to connect with the crowd and for artists to come together to celebrate their art and culture,” according to NIMA Creative Director Ben Graetz.

“The last two years of virtual events have been difficult, but it has also has allowed us to reach people from all over Australia and beyond, but going back to the country and being together to celebrate music will be a real homecoming for our industry.

Music, sporting, horse racing and cultural events play an important role in the economy of the Northern Territories.

Figures from the Northern Territory Major Events Company showed that eight of its events in the 2020-21 financial year generated $109.8 million in economic stimulus for the Northern Territory, including $64.9 million new funds.

Together, the events generated 257,590 visitor nights and supported the equivalent of 433 full-time jobs. The events attracted 102,269 people, with almost half (49,492) saying the event they attended was the main reason they visited the host region.

Have you ever been to a crowded and messy music festival and thought to yourself, “This could use 100% more camping?” Nope? Well, then, better pass Firefly, whose great appeal is the ability to roll out a sleeping bag after a long day of musical performances, and stare up at the sky in a hastily erected tent, wondering if the Port-A-Potties are going to be cleaned up overnight or if you’re going to get into a literal shitshow the next morning. Dua Lipa, Halsey, Green Day and My Chemical Romance headline, with Weezer, Big Sean, Gunna and Avril Lavigne’s comeback tour all supporting. It is a whole list of artists, regularly alternating between names that elicit a reaction of “Oh, cool!” and those causing internal shivering. But more importantly, it comes at the end of summer, one last hurrah before the leaves turn, autumn beckons us and we enter a more reflective and less sunny time. If you are not happy where you are, do what you can to change things. Whether it’s finding a new job or moving, don’t hesitate and take the plunge. We all deserve a brief respite from the avalanche of pain this life offers us. Yes, the reaper will come for you, but make him work for it.

Earlier this year, the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs announced that some of the city’s most beloved public programs would return this summer, from Chicago SummerDance dance classes to music festivals and concerts in Millennium Park. Now that the weather is finally reaching summer temperatures, we have the full lineup for three of these programming series.

The first is the Chicago Gospel Music Festival, which has been revamped this year as a one-day experience that will bring together a roster of choirs and contemporary artists at the Pritzker Pavilion on Saturday, June 4. Highlights include performances by singers like Kierra Sheard Kelly, Brian Courtney Wilson and John P. Kee, as well as a series of special tributes and memorial performances.

Then, from June 9-12, the Chicago Blues Festival will take place with a newly expanded footprint, hosting concerts in Millennium Park, Bronzeville, Austin and the Chicago Riverwalk. The four-day festival features a special “Women in Blues” showcase on June 12 that will pay tribute to legendary Chicago blues singer Mary Lane, as well as site-specific concerts to honor the neighborhoods where the blues originated in Chicago.

Finally, head to the Pritzker Pavilion every Monday and Thursday from June 20 through August 18 for the 10-part Millennium Park Summer Music Series, which features a wide range of music from up-and-coming and established artists. The series kicks off June 20 with performances by Afrobeat saxophonist Femi Kuti (son of iconic Nigerian musician Fela Kuti) and Moroccan-born electronic artist HAT; throughout the summer, find artists like Ukrainian folk-fusion quartet DakhaBrakha (July 18), Afro-Cuban artist Cimafunk (August 11) and none other than Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy (July 21), who will perform with students from The People’s Music School as the opening act.

Local live event organizers are planning their summer resurgence after two years of pandemic disruption.

The relaxation of certain public health protocols this spring – even as a sixth wave of COVID spread a highly transmissible but milder version of the coronavirus – brought a sigh of relief to Ottawa’s festival industry after years of dealing with strict restrictions and unstable.

Mark Monahan, Managing Director of RBC Bluesfest (July 7-17, LeBreton Flats), expressed optimism that with the lifting of restrictions “we will be able to hold a regular outdoor event.”

“I think 2022 is going to be an amazing year for music,” Monahan said, “because there’s so many artists that haven’t worked and everybody wants to get back out there.”

Last fall, RBC Bluesfest collaborated with City Folk Festival to offer a reduced three-day festival at Lansdowne Park. Monahan said he and his team were “pleasantly surprised” by the public’s response to attending large outdoor gatherings despite looming COVID-19 concerns.

He said they were looking to learn from last year to create a fun and safe event this summer – with a planned 10-day schedule featuring four stages and 100-125 acts.

“I think 2022 is going to be an amazing year for music because there are so many artists who haven’t worked and everyone wants to get back out there.”

— Mark Monahan, Executive Director, RBC Bluesfest

“Given a degree of safety and assurance through our planning, people were very willing to go back and seemed to be really enjoying the experience again,” he said.

According to Monahan, the key to contingency planning for this year’s in-person festival has been to “plan as well as possible but hopefully be able to maneuver or adapt, depending on the regulations in the community. at this moment”.

For young EDM-enthusiast festival-goers like Carleton University criminology student Megan Atkinson, attending live electronic dance music performances has allowed her to “step out of bounds that I normally wouldn’t if I was in a normal party setting like a club”.

The watered-down experience of music events throughout the pandemic has left Atkinson saying she’s eager to bounce back from the slump of the past two years and reconnect with other like-minded people.

“It’s been a lot harder to go out and meet new people, which I really like at music festivals. (Some festivals) had sections and passport checks and they were a lot more vetted, so they didn’t have much of the outgoing and free feeling that festivals usually have.

With Ontario’s EDM festivals such as getaway (June 24-26 at Lansdowne Park) and Veld (July 29-31 in Toronto) announcing their first-ever three-day lineups, Atkinson said she was looking forward to “making them a weekend and having a sense of normalcy.”

“It’s been a lot harder to get out there and meet new people, which I love at music festivals.”

— Megan Atkinson, Carleton University student and festival goer

As the industry has been one of the hardest hit by the pandemic, Ottawa tourism advocates and organizers said they are looking to capitalize on pent-up demand for live music and entertainment to revitalize the the city’s cultural scene this summer – an operation that has enormous benefits for the community, both economically and socially.

“We’ve heard and seen a number of people mention the isolation they feel because they can’t attend events and are such a big part of their lives,” Lee Dunbar, director of the research and communications at the Ottawa Festival Network, Capital Current told. Festivals and events bring people together — we’re part of the social fabric of Ottawa.

Typically, annual festivals, special events and fairs inject more than $222 million into the city’s economy through visitor spending and support nearly 68,800 jobs, a 2019 survey found.

Restoring Ottawa’s summer festival scene is also crucial for other sectors to thrive, Dunbar said.

“Other than the healthcare sector, the live events industry was the first hit, the hardest hit and we will be the last to recover,” he added. “This includes the festivals themselves, but also the wider ecosystem which includes staff, contractors, artists, vendors and suppliers, as well as spillovers to the hospitality and tourism industry.”

“Festivals and events bring people together — we’re part of the social fabric of Ottawa.

— Lee Dunbar, Director of Research and Communications, Ottawa Festival Network

Attracting swarms of live music fans to the stages might not be the toughest challenge of summer festival planning. Monahan said much of his team’s efforts have been aimed at welcoming back those who feel more uncertain about returning to large in-person gatherings.

“We believe there are certain segments of society that may be hesitant. We try to do things to assure people that we are going to pay attention to health regulations. »

Whether you’re a fan of music festivals or just ready to celebrate a taste of our newfound freedom, start planning now.

Relaxation of social distancing rules in Hong Kong ends a really depressing chapter of loneliness and stagnation during the “fifth wave” – fingers crossed, it’s all smooth sailing from here.

What have you missed most about our bustling city now that you’re free to enjoy dinner, a drink and a movie or two? If your answer is “live music” like mine (RIP to all my favorite bars with live band performances; I think fondly of those nights), the following events will get your feet moving and your heart beating like a drum.

Live music from Hong Kong to discover in April and May 2022

Ear Up Music Festival 2022

Weather: 7:00 p.m.

Hins Cheung: The next 20 Hins live in Hong Kong

Date: May 10 – 29, 2022 (16 shows)

Weather: 8:15 p.m.

Place: Hong Kong Coliseum, 9 Cheong Wan Road, Hung Hom

Ticket exchanges due to Covid-19 will begin May 2-9 by official announcement; Ticket sales will begin on May 4.

It was a difficult time for artists and performers. With its unwelcome intrusion in January, the Fifth Wave interrupted Hins Cheung’s The Next 20 Hins Live concert in Hong Kong and fans are begging for more. But don’t worry, Hins is back to pick up where he left off.

From May 10 to 29, 16 shows will once again liven up the once silent Hong Kong Coliseum, making up for the 8 shows canceled in accordance with the latest social distancing rules. If you haven’t gotten your hands on a ticket yet, be sure to check online on May 4th as it’s literally your last chance. In the meantime, let’s relive last year concert listput together by other Hins fans.

MIRROR: MIRROR.WE.ARE LIVE CONCERT 2022

Weather: 8:15 p.m.

Place: Hong Kong Coliseum, 9 Cheong Wan Road, Hung Hom

Ticket sales terms to be confirmed.

Is this really a complete countdown of upcoming music events in Hong Kong without the MIRROR name somewhere? I do not think so.

MIRROR really spoils us this week: starting with the release of their new song “Innerspace” on April 25 and a concert press conference on April 26, then, of course, ending on the monumental note that is the anniversary of Keung To on April 30.

As the press conference drew to a close, rumors of a concert in July are no longer rumors. The city’s most beloved boy band are taking over the Hong Kong Coliseum stage for the first time this summer, polishing their already impressive resume with another major achievement. Learn more about MIRROR.WE.ARE LIVE CONCERT 2022 here.
