(Sub) The 17th annual Gathering of the Vibes is set to take place from July 19th through 22nd at Seaside Park in Bridgeport, Ct and will feature Primus, Phil Lesh & Friends, Bob Weir & Bruce Hornsby with Special Guest Branford Marsalis, Mickey Hart Band, Sound Tribe Sector 9, The Avett Brothers, along with Yonder Mountain String Band, 7 Walkers, The Greyboy Allstars, and Steel Pulse.

Vibes favorites Dark Star Orchestra, Zappa Plays Zappa, and Bridgeport's own Deep Banana Blackout will return to the stage in 2012. Over 40 bands will perform on multiple stages located throughout the 370-acre beachfront venue.

"The Vibes is a seminal gathering of the tribes, and should be supported by those who spawned it," shared Mickey Hart, founding member of The Grateful Dead.

Continuing its tradition of embracing new, undiscovered artists, Vibes is letting its 130,000 Facebook fans select one up-and-coming band to perform in front of 20,000+ music enthusiasts. Fans are encouraged to vote by June 1st using the Road to the Vibes App and the winner will be announced in early June.

"Gathering of the Vibes celebrates the way music allows us to share that which goes beyond words," explained festival founder Ken Hays. "Right now there's a convergence of jam bands, electronica, and rock and roll - bridging the generations and truly making this a festival with something for everyone."
