Hope Rocks Festival Happens in Saugerties | Daily Dose | Hudson Valley | Chronogram Magazine

A week ago, I let you know about Saugerties’s recent FH Festival, which was held to raise awareness about the opioid crisis that has impacted our area. Today we’ll talk about another cause-oriented event coming to the town for two days this month: the Hope Rocks Festival, which happens on August 19 and 20.

Organized by local singer-songwriter Ian Flanigan in partnership with A&R company Nightcap Entertainment, LLC, the Hope Rocks Festival (formerly the Morse Rocks festival) features local talent as inspiration for those who suffer from addiction, depression, and social isolation. Slated to appear are over the two-day fest are the John Schrader Band, For No One, Human Extinction, the David Kolker Band, Frank Palangi, Porcelain Helmet, and 20 other bands and solo artists.

A special component of the festival is a collaborative record release party featuring three local acts on August 19 that will celebrate the release of three separate albums by three area acts: the Paul Luke Band, Hobo Jungle (featuring guitarist Jimmy Eppard), and Flanigan himself.

The Hope Rocks Festival will take place at the Keirsted Dutch Barn in Saugerties, New York, on August 19 and 20. For a performance schedule and more information, please visit https://www.facebook.com/hoperocksfestival/.
