Past performers include The Black Keys, Gary Clark, Jr., Cracker, TV On The Radio, Amos Lee, Ani DiFranco, Galactic, The Avett Brothers, Grace Potter, Levon Helm w/Bob Weir, Perry Farrell’s Satellite Party, The Roots and many more.

moe. manager Jon Topper described moe.down as a family affair: “It’s a time to relax with your friends and family. We never set out to overload people like other festivals. We have two stages and roughly 17 bands over the weekend. We leave plenty of time for people to chill at their campsites with their friends. Every year, we have a kids tent where we teach the kids a chorus to a moe.song and then parade all the kids on stage in the afternoon to join the band during the song. I am very proud of our festival. We work hard on keeping the ticket price low compared to most festivals. We consider upstate New York our home, and even though we do not all live in the state anymore we are all New Yorkers.”
