TSP Entertainment has announced the 2019 Night Lights Music Festival line-up. The festival will be anchored by internationally touring mashup DJ and sampling master Girl Talk as well as Buffalo groove rockers Aqueous and NYC’s dance-punk outfit !!! (chk chk chk.)
In its ninth year at the enchanted Heron grounds in Sherman, NY, Night Lights Music Festival will take place August 22-24 and will again transform the Heron into a magical SOUND & LIGHT spectacular. The line-up features an inclusive & varied showing of national, regional and local artists covering genres from electronic, jam, rock, funk, americana, bluegrass and indie.
Spread over three nights on three stages, this year’s lineup features Girl Talk aka Pittsburgh’s Greg Gillis. The former biomedical engineer is known for his critically acclaimed genre-smashing, breakneck-paced party jams, blending wildly disparate Top 40 genres and eras, mashed up and layered together into one cohesive collage and integrated into his renowned confetti-covered, sweat-soaked performances.
Aqueous returns to Night Lights for it’s eight year as a festival headliner. Aqueous guitarist and frontman Mike Ganzter will lead an all-star cast for the inaugural voyage of his Uncle Mike’s Random Company featuring Moe’s Vinnie Amico, Dopapod’s Rob Compa , Alric “A.C.” Carter of Tauk and bandmate Evan McPhaden.
Festival dance favs !!! (chk chk chk) bring their DIY punk roots and trans-Atlantic electronic music influences along with Colorado’s “electronic hydro funk” SunSquabi, rock/pop/funk Big Something and L.A.’s indie art rockers Sego to the illuminated stages of Night Lights.
Also highlighting the festival’s diverse music curation is “Swamptronica” outfit Dirtwire featuring members of Beats Antique, Dogon Lights, and Sol Norda as well as jazz funk fusion masters Ghost-Note lead by Snarky Puppy’s multi-Grammy–winning percussion duo of Robert “Sput” Searight and Nate Werth.
In addition to the music, activities include yoga, hiking, mushroom walks, live art and light installations. Food, craft beer, craft artisans and a variety of vendors will be available on site.
