The Mountain Jam music festival will be held at Bethel Woods Center for the Arts this summer. 

It marks a change for the music festival, which has been held at Hunter Mountain for the past 14 years. Earlier this week, Hunter Mountain posted about the venue change on Facebook saying, “While we are disappointed to see the festival move, we would like to extend our most sincere gratitude to the many supporters who made Hunter Mountain a successful Mountain Jam venue for more than a decade.”

Mountain Jam is run by Warren Haynes and Gary Chetkof, who is also the president of Radio Woodstock. Founded in 2005, the festival has brought artists like Robert Plant, Beck and Tom Petty to the stage. It’s also hosted Capital Region musicians like Sydney Worthley, Sean Rowe and Jocelyn & Chris Arndt.

This year, Mountain Jam runs from June 13-16. The line-up includes Willie Nelson & Family, Alison Kraus, The Avett Brothers, Dispatch, Michael Franti & Spearhead and others. The Wild Adriatic, which was formed in Saratoga Springs, is also scheduled to play. 

Early bird tickets, which start at $159, go on sale on Friday at 10 a.m. and are available until Monday, February 11. For more information visit
