Mountain Jam 2017 will take place June 16-18 at its longstanding home, in the heart of the Great Northern Catskills of Greene County in Hunter Mountain, NY. Hunter Mountain is the Northeast’s premier natural amphitheater set amidst a majestic landscape. The venue offers premium camping and lodging options on-site along with modern conveniences including 24-hour access to indoor bathrooms, a large full service bar, and a plethora of food options.
Throughout the weekend activities are planned for music lovers of all ages. The Sky Ride, a six-passenger chairlift that carries guests to the 3,200 foot summit offering spectacular views of the Massachusetts’ Berkshires and Vermont’s Green Mountains, is also a Jammer fan favorite.
“This year’s edition of Mountain Jam brings a unique blend of artists and eras from across the landscape of rock n roll that will not be replicated at any other music festival,” commented Dhruv Prasad, one of the festival organizers.
