Hudson Music Project - Listening to Sunday

So far we've covered a small few of the artists performing on Friday and Saturday. If you are partying responsibly, you'll be able to full take in Sunday and it's glory. There are some major performances going down, including the fully blocked out Bassnectar set, something that has been routine as previous festivals from MCP. The whole day is stacked with goodness, and we're going to check out some of them.

The Floozies -

Start your day off with The Floozies in the Circus tent. You be keeping cool with the funky and fun electronic beats. Mark Hill and Matt Hill will move the hills and start you off with a healthy does of a good time. Check out their remixes above, their set time starts at 1:30pm, you'll be up by then right?

Jonas Rathsaman -

Jonas will bring you back to the classic club flow. You'll be feeling good walking into this set. His music is fun and meant to make you move. This will also be midday in set time-terms, the perfect time to get ready for the epicness to follow. Catch Jonas in the Catskill Cave.

Moon Boots -

Keep on dancing in the Catskill Cave as you are lifted into the cosmos with Moon Boots. His bio actually refers to him being a pair of astronaut boots. That alone would have me checking him out. The music is smooth and flowing. Might play a nice introduction into Tipper...

Paper Diamond -

Alex B. is a Colorado based producer, but people have been dancing to him as Paper Diamond. Experience the raw energy that comes to a Paper Diamond set. Shivers will be sent up your spine as your arms and legs get turnt up. People will be going nuts. It will be spectacular. He'll be closing out the festival in the Circus Tent Sunday night. Find me there.

So there you have it! The whole weekend is full of great music and artists...the whole freaking weekend is! Below you'll find the Sunday lineup/set times, and be sure to check out the other two days of features!

Finally, A Festival Website that Does It Right

Finding anything on the internet takes patience. Knowing where to search, what to search and how to search can sometimes be a little much. Perhaps that's why so many people have taken to believe every single meme they see posted on Facebook. Well, now there is one website that exists to give you what you want, and that's it.

Music Festival Nation is here to tell you what, when, where, how and why for music festivals all over, with a community aspect. To use the site, simply type the festival you're looking for in the search bar in the top and chances are it'll pop up. You can also search through festivals by searching alphabetically, by location, or by date. Once you find a festival, there are links to get to their official websites and social media connections. Many have photos attached, the full lineup, and every festival has it's own ride share page.

Ride Share for Hudson Music Project
People want to come to festivals from all over the country, and with this it could be possible for people to connect and see where the other is. Right here there's people in Michigan, Florida, New York, and New Jersey looking for and giving rides to the Hudson Music Project. It's super simple and to the point, it's a very useful tool.

This is everything you would need to find a festival to go to, buy tickets and get there. The community aspect is enormous, and Music Festival Nation makes it easy to do. The guys behind it (Jared and Blaine) have been around for a few years, and recently they have been updating their look and outreach. I would highly suggest checking it out, and seeing if there's been any ride share info posted up. I found a ride last minute for The Hudson Music Project, but I was about to grab one from New Jersey originally from someone offering a ride on Music Festival Nation. Right off the bat the site helped me out.

Remember, if the festival you're looking for isn't there, take a moment to add it in with some info. Usually the festival's Facebook page will have most of it. You can also just comment on how excited you are to be going to a festival already listed! Either way, it is important to know that this site is online and has so much information and connectivity to it.

It's been too long, and I am thankful that Music Festival Nation now is here.

Hudson Music Project - Listening to Saturday

Just earlier Hudson Music Project released the set times for each day of the festival. After seeing how the days will be panning out, I'm excited to say this festival will be filled with tons of awesome music and good times.

Here's what Saturday looks like:

As you can see there's four stages and sometimes they all overlap. This can complicate things when you wanted  to see a set in full, but ride the rails and the next stage over which could be a ten minute walk and a few thousand people to get through once you make it there. So you should plan ahead, create a small schedule and don't be afraid to leave it behind if you so please... there will be awesomeness everywhere, and sometimes it will find you.

Bit Funk -

When Bit Funk hits the stage, get ready for some late afternoon delightful soul. You will be feeling satisfied throughout. The is also a great place to glovers to be.. assuming the Catskill Cave stage is indoors. Set time's at 4:30pm.

Coming at you in the Circus Tent just as the sun slowly disappears, Kap Slap will bring on that big progressive house sound to your earholes. I imagine the Circus Tent to be the equivalent to the dance tents at previous festivals, and I can't wait to see the visuals happening here. Kap Slap will hit the stage at 7:30, and will directly be followed by....

Felix Cartal -

One big sound after the next. The buildups and energy in the Circus Tent will be HYPE through Felix Cartal's set. It'll be two epic hours at the festival, be sure to catch in on some of this action while you are wandering the music and grounds.

Gold Panda -

Late nights can start getting a little different at a festival. Music that is put together differently than a build and a drop. Hudson Project has graced us with an opportunity to experience Gold Panda in all his glory. This is a set I might pull the art supplies out for.

Well, whatever set you check out I'm sure they will be awesome. Remember though, explorers explore.

Hudson Music Project Daily Time Slots Announced!

The moment I've personally been waiting for has finally come! With the first day opening up in just over a week,The Hudson Music Project will be giving us such an amazing lineup of music. How to make sure you catch everyone you want to can be tricky sometimes. Especially when you get pulled into something else.

Here's your daily set times to help you know where to go:

I already know some set's I'll be at, and the Catskill Cave in looking pretty inviting. Those sunset set times are looking pretty good too, not to mention that familiar block out all other music while Bassnectar hits the stage. We've seen this before, and it's pretty epic to have almost the entire camp raging out to Lorin. There's a certain vibe he brings that's undeniable.

There you have it! Start making your schedule online HERE. The button to start is near the top of the page, and you'll need to login to do it. If you have Facebook it makes life much easier.
