Typically the lineup for the fest—which is named after the classic Allman Brothers tune and cofounded by longtime Allmans guitarist Warren Haynes—skews a bit more jammy (think Gov't Mule, Umphrey's McGee and the like) so it'll be interesting to see how Mountain Jam does with a bill focused more on indie rock (War on Drugs, Kurt Vile) and other non-jam genres.
It's only about a two-hour drive outside NYC, and tickets are currently on sale.
