Night Lights Music Festival Brightly Rounds Out the Summer Season by Ryan Smith
Beats Antique

Thursday, Aug. 25

Stunning sonic shapeshifters, Beats Antique.

Jam world royalty, Eric Krasno.

Ever-expanding prog-jam wizards, Aqueous.

“Cave Music” masters, Moon Hooch; synth-washed rocketeers, Jimkata; and new-old-school rockers, The London Souls.

To put it simply, the good people behind the Night Lights Music Festival have damn good taste in music – and they know how to put on a spectacular get-down.

Night Lights has grown over the last six years into a completely unique, not-to-be-missed annual addition to the region’s festival scene.

All those out-of-this-world musicians are just a small bit of the sweet lineup at this year’s Night Lights, which has grown over the last six years into a completely unique, not-to-be-missed annual addition to the region’s already very cool live music festival scene.

Night Lights also calls Sherman, New York’s beautiful Great Blue Heron festival grounds its home, bringing a new (and entirely complementary) vibe into that hallowed space for three days and nights between Thursday, Aug. 25 and Saturday, Aug. 27.

An amazing music- and light-driven, socially conscious, cozy gathering of good, groove-minded people: Where else would any festy fan want to find themselves kissing summer goodbye? – Ryan Smith
