As you know if you have been following this show for a while, Hillside is, at least for me, the tiny perfect music festival. Reusable plates and utensils, refillable water bottles, healthy food, organic beer, and a delightful roster of performers in a small beautiful conservation area with a lake to swim in when the sun is hot.
Ah, yes. This year was not to be for me. But it didn't stop me from putting together a taste of the lineup from this year's edition of Hillside.
There are some kinda surprising choices here, and some of the gentle folk you would expect from an event in the country.
So kick back, get comfortable and feel the peace.
