The 2015 festical will continue in the tradition of previous festivals, which have, in addition to offering a broad range of musical performers and comedians, uncluded falconry and birds of prey demonstrations, a dunk tank, an all-covers set by Wilco, a naturalist hike, axe-restoration instruction, a live version of NPR’s Radiolab and more, all set amidst the sprawling campus of the country’s largest contemporary art museum.
In addition to tickts, this Friday opens reservations for campsites at Solid Ground, the festivals official campsite, and for seats on the Peter Pan chartered bus service to and from the festival from New York City.
