What started a decade ago as Jeremy Schon’s pet project when the Pigeons Playing Ping Pong guitarist was a student at the University of Maryland is now celebrating its 10th consecutive year! Today, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong are pleased to share the initial lineup for the latest iteration of Domefest, taking place over May 16th – 18th at the new location of Marvin’s Mountaintop in Masontown, WV.
“To celebrate our 10th year, we’re bringing back some familiar faces along with new artists that will surely blow our fans’ minds,” said Jeremy Schon, Domefest founder and the beloved Pigeons’ guitarist. “We’re so excited about our new home at Marvin’s Mountaintop and we’ve decided to cap attendance at 2,500 people so Domefest remains the same fun, friendly and intimate festival that we’ve all grown to love.”
Once again, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong will play five sets this year, plus performances by the band’s side projects Scrambled Greg, Schwa (feat. bassist Ben Carrey) and Puremotion (feat. drummer Alex Petropulos), as well as sets by Aqueous (x2), Mungion (x2), Litz, Joe Hertler & The Rainbow Seekers, Funk You, Fletcher’s Grove, Goose, West End Blend, Swimmer, Chalk Dinosaur, Mateo Monk and more TBA.
Cultivating a community of like-minded music fans continues to sit at the forefront of the Pigeons-presented event. For the last decade, Domefest has consistently proved to book some of the best under-the-radar talents in the live music space, with festival alumni including Papadosio, Twiddle, Turkuaz and Tauk, to name a few. The intimate atmosphere allows artists to intermingle with their fans and as a festival curated by touring musicians, Domefest aims to make it a meaningful experience for every artist invited to play.
