The Prattsville Art Center is proud to present the fourth annual “Headed for the Hills” festival. The free festival brings a kaleidoscopic mix of high-energy performers to Prattsville, N.Y., a small town high in the Catskill Mountains. The festival celebrates “Diversity on Main Street” and highlights women, LGBTQ performers, and artists of color. Over 25 performers are included in the three-day event, which melds high-profile indie rock bands with cabaret artists, drag kings, a top NYC DJ, Afro-Jazz and regional performers.
In addition to the music, visitors can experience an All-Asian NYC dance troupe, electronic sound art, and site specific art installations, complimented by workshops, crafts, food, and vendors art throughout the weekend.
The “Headed for the Hills Festival” has received awards from the National Endowment for the Arts’ “Challenge America” and “Our Town programs, and from NY State Council on the Arts, and Greene County Council on the Arts.
The cool green mountains of northern Greene County make a lush summer getaway from the urban tri-state area.
