hudson project 2014 full lineup
After a long and grueling wait fueled by the rumor mill, MCP Presents announced this spring that Camp Bisco will be “taking the year off”. In light of this announcement, however, MCP, in conjunction with SFX Entertainment, has announced The Hudson Project, a three-day 18+ camping festival at Winston Farm in Saugerties, New York.
Running from July 11 to July 13, The Hudson Project will feature over 85 acts on four separate stages, as well as an additional interactive performance stage. The Hudson Project will also feature interactive art and regional arts and crafts in a separate art village, performance art, and a local music showcase. MCP has also boasted that it will be providing extensive camping and “glamping” options, as well as local gourmet food, craft beer, wine selections, and more.
The festival and the camping experience are guaranteed to be unique: Woodstock’s 1994 revival took place at the Winston Farm and Michael Lang, one of Woodstock ‘69’s original organizers, has announced his involvement in The Hudson Project. The farm plans on hosting at least 18,000 attendees in The Hudson Project’s inaugural year.


The Hudson Project will take place at Winston Farm in Saugerties, New York.


The initial lineup demonstrates MCP Presents’ ability stay ahead of the curve by catering to music fans who have a wide range of tastes. The lineup includes notable indie acts, like The Flaming Lips, Matt & Kim, and Modest Mouse, as well as includes a handful of great jam band-esque performers, like Tipper, Lettuce and STS9 (who have reunited, complete with new bassist). Electronic music fans really luck out though – the initial lineup is an array of today’s both established and up-and-coming talent. Bass fans will be delighted to see artists like Bassnectar, Infected Mushroom, Kastle, Kill Paris, Excision, TOKiMONSTA, Keys N Krates, and Luminox included. Glitch lovers will be pleased to see their tastes represented by artists like GRiZ, Paper Diamond, Odesza. For those who prefer electro and house music, artists like Thomas Jack, Savoy, Kygo, Oliver, and Project 46 are welcome additions. Fans of more experimental sounds can take solace in the inclusion of Jon Hopkins, Bonobo, Robert DeLong and YACHT.
In true MCP Presents spirit, there will be a number of elements designed to enhance the experience of the festival attendee, such a numerous art installations (including live painting), a variety of delicious food and drink options and free workshops.
