The amount of Grateful Dead-related bands now slated for this festival is pretty astounding (all the makings of a Dead reunion except for Phil Lesh). But it’s not that atypical a lineup for GOTV. Also, it’s really good to see Steve Kimock’s old band Zero continuing to make a comeback and flesh out some summer dates. Hopefully the Zero lineup will include the band’s original — and immensely funky — bassist: Bobby Vega.

Tickets and other info is avilable at the Gathering of the Vibes website. Advance-purchase weekend passes are currently on sale for $125.
