One of the music festivals that can often get overlooked amidst a sea of the bigger OSL’s and ACL’s of the world is the upstate New York gem known as Catskill Chill Music Festival. We’ve written about the festival in the past and would be remiss to not mention this mini-festival again in 2011. This year’s lineup is stacked with some jamband middleweights like Umphrey’s McGee, but following right behind are the untz-Bisco stylings of and the Dead-based nostalgia funk thing called 7 Walkers (with the Grateful Dead’s Bill Kreutzmann at the helm). with Nikki Glaspie is on the lineup as is , Big Sam’s Funky Nation and — all LMB favorites and a sure-fire good time if we were able to attend this festival in the flesh.

If you’re going, get in touch as we’d love a report or two of how everything goes down. Read on for the full lineup and don’t miss this one if you’re within driving distance. The schedule is live so you can start planning your attack now…
