This year’s Gathering Of The Vibes festival has filled out their headlining lineup with the addition of Gov’t Mule on Saturday night, July 27.
The festival is also opening up their late night events to single day ticket holders.

Previously late night events were only open to weekend pass holders.
Tickets to Gathering of the Vibes are still available, from an $85 day pass to $225 weekend pass, at www.gatheringofthevibes.com.
