September 5-7. Fall is around the bend, but the outdoor music festival season isn't ready for hibernation just yet. Check the monstrous bill of the Catskill Chill fest, a jam-a-riffic three-day event at Camp Minglewood in Delaware County: Yonder Mountain String Band with Allie Kral, the New Deal, Lettuce, Electron, a DJ set by Shpongle's Simon Posford, Karl Denson's Tiny Universe, the New Mastersounds, Dopapod, Kung Fu, Particle, Marco Benevento, the Manhattan Project, and tons more. Tribute sets include Turkuaz doing Sly and the Family Stone, Alan Evans's Playonbrother playing Cream, and Twiddle eulogizing the Grateful Dead ("New Minglewood Blues" should be atop the set list, given the site's name). Camping, RV, and bunkhouse accommodations available. See website for ticket prices and set times. Hancock. Catskillchill.com
