Planning for this year’s edition of Greenfest began in the waning stages of last year’s festival. We knew we wanted to keep the same vibe, but ratchet it up just a notch. Greenfest has always been a different type of festival. A unique blend of exposure to new bands, jamming to familiar favorites, offbeat family reunion and good-times revival. No matter the venue, line-up or location it’s always held true to the mantra of for the fans, by the fans. Each year we gather input from other fans and winnow everything down into a potent mix of awesomeness as best we can. There are bedrock Greenfest artists that will be with us every year, and many new acts each year who could very well be the next big thing. Turnpike Troubadours in 2010 comes to mind. They played early on the bill to a middling crowd. 12 months later they were headlining the biggest stages in the scene.
