Vermont-based jam quartet Twiddle is proud to announce the return of TUMBLE DOWN on July 28 and 29, 2017. The two day music festival will be held on the beautiful shores of Lake Champlain at Waterfront Park in Burlington. Last summer’s picturesque setting hosted national touring acts like Nahko and Medicine for the People, Turkuaz, Cabinet, Kitchen Dwellers and Holly Bowling. In partnership with Higher Ground Presents and the Lake Champlain Music Festival, Twiddle is thrilled to host another dynamic weekend of music and the outdoors, providing thousands with a special way to soak in everything Burlington has to offer.
“We wanted to do something big in Burlington because we consider it our home. The city has so much to offer in terms of music, awesome outdoor activities, and the nightlife downtown. We hoped that Tumble Down could reflect the dynamic nature of this amazing small city on Lake Champlain.” -Ryan Dempsey of Twiddle.
“We couldn’t be more excited to bring Twiddle and Tumble Down back to Waterfront Park. For a band that’s been hiding in plain sight for the last 9 years, it’s always thrilling to work with a Vermont band that’s exhibiting explosive growth and relentless creativity.The future is bright for Twiddle.” - Alex Crothers of Higher Ground Presents
In addition to the many lakeside performances, Tumble Down collaborates with music venues all over Burlington to bring a bevy of late night performances, and even a Twiddle inspired art exhibition led by Phanart. Notably, the 2016 event culminated with “Mihali and Frends” at Higher Ground in South Burlington, a rare treat which saw Twiddle lead singer and guitarist Mihali Savoulidis performing with a variety of Tumble Down musicians. The White Light Foundation, a non-profit organization inspired by the band, will again have a positive presence at 2017’s event, supporting local community causes through fundraising and awareness initiatives .
