Spring For Sound on June 15: All-day Live Music Festival in Millerton

The third annual Spring For Sound will fill the Village of Millerton with music on Saturday, June 15.  Thirty bands and deejays will perform on three stages from 11:30 am to 11 pm, to benefit the North East Community Center (NECC).  NECC board members and The Kyles bandmates, Mimi Harney and Kristen Panzer, created Spring for Sound to celebrate and showcase Millerton’s burgeoning homegrown music scene, while supporting their favorite organization. All proceeds benefit NECC.

The festival begins at 11:30 am as Del Water Gapserenades visitors at the Millerton Farmers Market in the Railroad Plaza.  At 2 pm, the Decks & Dance Party will kick off in NECC’s backyard, 51 South Center Street.  Back at Railroad Plaza at the NxNE (North by Northeast) stage under the tent, 10 bands will play from 2 – 11pm. 

This year the festival has added a third stage at Gilmor Glass, 2 Main Street from 3 – 10pm. The Spring for Sound “pop-up” will feature performances by a mix of acoustic and solo artists during the afternoon.  The Gilmor stage will also feature their famous Gilmor Oyster Fest raw bar with fresh oysters à la carte, iced and on the half shell, for $2 each.
