You showed your UMPH love last summer and we heard you loud and clear. It was very apparent that there was a huge desire to have Umphrey’s McGee back to the mountain again in 2018. It was amazing last year seeing all 2,000+ smiling faces in front of the stage Saturday night dancing under the lights. After the show in 2017 Jake Cinninger commented that while Mountain Music Festival was not the biggest show they have ever played it was the coolest! The band is fired up to come back and experience everything the New River Gorge has to offer!
To really have a great vacation and experience all the adventures ACE has to offer takes more than one day. Umphrey’s McGee knows this, which is why they are staying the entire weekend and playing TWO Nights with TWO SETS each night!! Get ready for explosive jams on the mountain, guitar wizardry and a mind-altering light show as these guys never disappoint. The stage is not the only place the boys will be playing at the giant outdoor resort though.
With over 25 bands spread over four different stages plus visual artists, vendors, camping, a waterpark, and outdoor adventures there will be no shortage of fun on the mountain. There are still a number of bands yet to announce for the main stage as well as the Lake Stage on the deck at The Lost Paddle. Stay tuned for more news and updates coming your way. The best way to keep track of everything Mountain Music Festival is to follow us on Facebook and join the Event Page. Early bird tickets are on sale now and you can save up to $40 off advance ticket prices. Summer is coming back to the New River Gorge and we are waiting to kick off the 2018 season with a few thousand of your smiling faces!
