(Greenfield, MA) – The Green River Festival, Western Massachusetts’ favorite music and hot air balloon festival will take place July 8, 9, and 10 on the grounds of Greenfield Community in Greenfield, MA. July 10 will feature Tedeschi Trucks Band, Los Lobos, and North Mississippi All Stars in the Wheels of Soul tour. Presented by Signature Sounds, the festival was recently deemed “one of 2015’s must see summer festivals” by Rolling Stone and one of the “fifty essential summer music festivals” by The New York Times.
The Green River Festival combines a spectacular lineup of nearly 40 acts on three stages, the best in local food, beer and wine, handmade crafts, a dance tent, a wide array of kid’s activities and entertainment, and hot air balloon rides and a balloon glow, for Western Massachusetts’ largest outdoor event of the summer. This is the only music festival in the country that features hot air balloons.
For the first time this year, festival camping will be available at the nearby Franklin County Fairgrounds. The fairgrounds offers over 40 acres of flat open camping area and includes RV electric hook-ups, multiple bathrooms with showers and a weather emergency shelter. All camping tickets include a festival ticket, plus parking with free shuttle buses to and from Greenfield Community College.
