Music history was made in the Catskills region of New York over Memorial Day Weekend this year, with the inaugural Teksupport produced camping festival – Gather Outdoors!
Gather boasted cutting edge acts, spanning across the underground dance music spectrum! Guests were treated to a particularly special showing by UK legend Mr. G, who made his USA debut, as well as intimate performances by the likes of Amelie Lens, Jamie xx, James Murphy, and Danny Tenaglia— just to name a few. Each act brought their absolute A-game, making for an impressively satisfying soundtrack all weekend long. Matching the music was the natural beauty of Holiday Mountain itself; lush greenery surrounded the stages, setting spirits even higher as the sets unfolded. The energy was truly infectious!
As with any festival, there were, of course, a couple of hurdles faced; Rain hit the event on Day 1, leaving only the most dedicated fans behind at the fest. Hats off to the Gather team, who handed out ponchos to those that stayed behind. Getting to Oak Stage was also a bit of a mission due at times to its steep hilltop location and a couple of friends in camping advised there were was a delay to their tents as well.
All of that being said, we are more than confident that the first-time kinks experienced will be easily resolved when we Gather next year, given the festival’s prompt responses to the issues at hand throughout the weekend!
