Back on Friday we told you about the inaugural Interlocken Festival, which will be held at Oak Ridge Farm in Arrington, Virginia on Sept. 5 – 8. Relix publisher Pete Shapiro and H.O.R.D.E. co-founder Dave Frey have organized the festival. Neil Young and Crazy Horse, Furthur, The String Cheese Incident and The Black Crowes are among the bands that were included in the first Interlocken artist announcement, with the possibility that Widespread Panic (and friend(s)?) will join in the fun.
With so many festivals on the scene these days, it’s all about how you differentiate yourself from other events and we like what Interlocken organizers have come up with,” Interlocken’s two main stages will feature full two-hour sets that will run seamlessly from one to the other without breaks between performances…The emphasis will be on quality over quantity, as fewer bands will be playing longer sets and many of the featured artists will perform multiple sets on different days.” One band that it appears will be playing multiple sets is Furthur, however you’ll need to kick down to get down at the group’s “private acoustic performance.”
CID Entertainment will start selling VIP & Super VIP “Experiences” for Interlocken on Thursday. While pricing hasn’t been revealed, we did come across an interesting detail. Those purchasing the Super VIP Experience will receive an “Invitation to a private acoustic performance by FURTHUR.” Furthur acoustic performances have been few and far between, so we’ll be interested to see how this goes down.
