Matrix Music Festival is a one of a kind Annual 3-Day Camping Music Festival that will be held July 29-31 2016 at Mt. Jefferson Ski Resort, Lee, Maine. Home of Matrix Pavilion, the first concert venue to have the option to stay and camp overnight at all of their concerts all Summer.


Headlining the festival is Colorado Acoustic Rock/Bluegrass band the Yonder Mountain String Band.  For nearly 17 years, Yonder Mountain String Band has redefined bluegrass music, expanding the traditional acoustic genre beyond its previously established boundaries by steadily pushing the envelope into the realms of rock n’ roll and ymsbimprovisation. YMSB has always played music of their own design, in the process attracting a devout coterie of fans that often resembles a tight knit family on an epic musical journey as Yonder traverses the country with an ever-rigorous tour schedule. Yonder is a quintessential ensemble honing its craft night after night on the road, and the fans are there to experience it in real time. The result is music that doesn’t stand still, it’s always progressing and breaking unprecedented ground.

Some other artists that are headlining include the Montreal-based rock and roll group the Sam Roberts Band, recently Billboard chart’s #1 Reggae band Roots of Creation (out of New Hampshire), Georgia’s jamband/funk/soul player Zach Deputy, Maine’s seven-piece pop rock band Rustic Overtones and hard rock band Prospect Hill (out of Massachusetts).
