Somehow there’s just never enough room in Chronogram’s annual summer music festival spread to give ink to all the worthy warm-weather performance events happening in the area. Besides the space confines of the magazine and the need to change it up with what we cover, it increasingly seems there are dozens of new festivals popping up every year—but of course that all makes for a good problem for local music lovers to have. One recently launched fest is Spring for Sound, which is now in its third year and happens on June 15 in Millerton.
To benefit the village’s North East Community Center, Spring for Sound presents 30 bands and DJs performing on three stages, with a dance party kicking off at 2pm behind the center itself. Among the acts booked to play are the Kyles (featuring NECC board members Mimi Harney and Kristen Panzer) and Del Water Gap. A stage at Gilmor Glass on Main Street will include a raw bar with fresh oysters à la carte, iced and on the half shell.
Here are the Ballroom Jacks holding forth at last year’s festival:
Spring for Sound takes place in Millerton on June 15 from 11:30am to 11pm. For tickets and more information, call (518) 789-4259 or visit Springforsound.com.
