The 2013 line-up includes twice as many artists as last year, including New York City-based Chicha Libre’s Latin rhythms and psychedelic surf sounds; Erin Hobson’s guitar grooves; American rockers Hollis Brown; the hillbilly lampooning of Van Halen that is Van Hayride; the pulsing electro-trombone and robot keyboard loops of local trio Pontoon; and Tracy Bonham’s return to Beacon Riverfest. Also playing are Higher Animals (children of

The Grand Slambovians), local Cajun band Krewe de la Rue, international act Matuto, Mamie Minch and Her Business, the Beacon Music Factory House Band, and The Costellos.

Plus, the Kids and Family Tent returns with family bands, Imagination Playground equipment, face painting, Bubble Boy and more. There will also be food truck and vendor offerings, along with local handmade crafts.

The 2013 roster of Beacon Riverfest sponsors includes Beacon Natural Market and WFUV-FM, with generous support from The Roundhouse at Beacon Falls, Dutchess County Arts Council (DCAC), Beacon Arts, and the City of Beacon.
