When Furthur first announced its intentions to hold a festival at Mountain Aire in Angels Camp, CA, there were little details released about the three-day event. Since then the band has unveiled a number of artist additions, launched a Web site soely for the festival and announced the band's intentions to perform six of the Grateful Dead's legendary albums.
On Saturday, the band will revisit American Beauty (Set I), Workingman’s Dead (Set II) and Anthem of the Sun (Set III). On Sunday, Furthur will reinterpret Blues for Allah (Set I), Aoxomoxoa (Set II) and Terrapin Station (Set III).
Furthur will also offer a public sound check on Friday night and members “will be jamming on several stages with some of their friends," not to mention lots of side trips like a spoken word stage that will feature some of our Grateful Dead family members and a trove of iconic Grateful Dead memorabilia, rare instruments and sound recordings.
Other Furthur Festival artists include: Electric Hot Tuna, Galactic, RatDog’s Mark Karan & Jemimah Puddleduck, The Mother Hips, Honeymoon, Carney, Maiden Lane, Blue Light River, The Waybacks and Common Rotation with Dan Bern, Jackie Greene, Larry Campbell and Teresa Williams will also perform with their solo bands.
