Today, Marco Benevento announced Follow The Arrow, a one day festival set to take place at Arrowwood Farms in Accord, N.Y. on Saturday, June 18.
The Woodstock, N.Y.-based musician will welcome The Slip, Antibalas, El Michels Affiar (DJ set), Mikaela Davis & Southern Star, Karina Rykman, Jayla Kai and Ratboy Jr. Additionally several Benevento configurations will perform: the Benevento Family Band which includes his wife and two daughters, his duo with Alecia Chakour dubbed 40 Love and the long-awaited return of Surprise Me Mr. Davis. The inaugural gathering will be capped off by a Marco Benevento & Friends set featuring Scott Metzger, Stuart Bogie, Cochemea Gastelum, Sam Evian and Burnell Pines.
“I love where I live. Every morning I wake up and think to myself how beautiful life is in the Catskills and what a cool community of folks I’m surrounded by,” said Benevento in a press release. “So to have the opportunity to throw a big party with some of my favorite bands and closest friends right in my own backyard is a dream come true. We’re so excited to get everyone over to Arrowood Farms on a gorgeous Saturday afternoon and celebrate the positive.”
The festival will also celebrate Benevento’s upcoming self-titled album which will release just one week before the festival on June 10. Read more about Benevento here.
