The summer music festival high season may be officially over (sniff), but there’s one more intriguing local fest coming in under the wire: Huichica East, which takes place September 31 and October 1 at the Chaseholm Farm and features Phosphorescent (solo), Bill Callahan, Vetiver, Garth Hudson, and other acts.

Huichica (pronounced WA-CHEEK-AH) was started in Sonoma, California, in 2010 as “a new breed of micro festival built on the concept that dynamic, hand-curated music, wine, beer and food are best shared in beautiful, intimate settings with a warm and friendly attitude.” Among those performing in addition to the above artists are Purling Hiss, Woods, Entrance, and Mail the Horse. Children are encouraged to attend, and admission is free for those under 12. Camping will also be available.

Here’s Bill Callahan singing live in the great outdoors via NPR’s Music Field:

Huichica East will be held on September 31 and October 1 at the Chaseholm Farm in Pine Plains, New York. Camping and festival tickets are available. One-day passes are $50 and two-day passes are $90. For passes and more information, visit http://www.huichica.com/.
