FESTIVAL: Life Is Good

LIG2013

The Life Is Good Festival is this weekend, and I’m so excited to attend both days! This is a one of a kind fest, that’s truly one of the most special musical events I’ve attended. ALL proceeds go to help children in need, through the Life Is Good Playmakers. Because of this focus on children, the festival is a family affair, with a kids stage and LOTS of kids activities.

Aside from the beautiful family vibe that comes through at this fest, the lineup is always ridiculous! This year Jack Johnson and Hall & Oates headline. Oh, and throw in The Roots, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Amos Lee, and Dawes for good measure! Also new this year, there will be a Coffee House stage curated by Ryan Montbleau. He’ll perform a set each day along with Dwight & Nicole, Tall Heights, Mike Doughty, Session Americana, Amber Rubarth and more!

Here are a few lesser known acts I’m really excited to see:

  1. Sorry I’m not in Mass to see this festival, but thanks for posting the video of Lake Street Dive – a really original cover of a classic. I noticed that Thao and the Get Down Stay Down are also at the Life is Good Festival. Check out the songs they did at NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert series.
