Gov't Mule

The band plans to pay homage to Woodstock at the 1969 festival site.

Gov’t Mule, the 25-year-old southern rock jam band formed by the Allman Brothers Band guitarist Warren Haynes and bassist Allen Wood, is returning to Mountain Jam with a double-headliner performance June 14 & 15.

Now in its 15th year, Mountain Jam announced in February it was leaving its longtime home at the Hunter Mountain ski resort in upstate New York for Bethel Woods Pavilion, the original site of the iconic 1969 Woodstock festival. Gov't Mule will headline Mountain Jam on Friday with a two-hour set, followed by a special late-night set on Saturday in honor of the 50th anniversary of Woodstock.

Mountain Jam is the Northeast’s largest rock 'n' roll camping music festival with four days of music featuring Willie Nelson & Family, Phil Lesh & Friends, the Avett Brothers, the Revivalists, Joe Russo's Almost Dead, Dispatch, Alison Krauss and more. This year's festival features  original art exhibits, expert panels including CBD health and wellness, a craft beer village and morning yoga with a special session led by Michael Franti on Sunday.

Mountain Jam is produced by Haynes, Radio Woodstock and Live Nation. Single day tickets, general admission and VIP weekend packages are on sale now. More at mountainjam.com
