Yesterday, Higher Ground Presents and Grace Potter announced the lineup for the seventh annual Grand Point North music festival in September. The news likely has many Phish-heads and jam fans "bouncing 'round the room."

Traditionally, Potter headlines both nights of the end-of-summer blowout at Burlington's Waterfront Park — that's a perk of hosting your own music festival. This year, Potter still plays both nights, but Sunday's headlining slot goes to the Trey Anastasio Band. Supporting the Phish front man are vocalist/trumpeter Jennifer Hartswick,  keyboardist Ray Paczkowski, drummer Russ Lawton and bassist Tony Markellis.
If that isn't enough to whet your appetite, the other top-billed acts are killer: Dawes, Mondo Cozmo, Joseph, Hurray for the Riff Raff, Low Cut Connie and Son Little, as well as Tank & the Bangas, the last of  whom won National Public Radio's 2017 Tiny Desk Contest back in March.

And then there's the stellar local lineup: Henry Jamison, Barika, the Welterweights, smalltalker, Eastern Mountain Time, Lake Superior and Snakefoot keep things rooted in the 802.

Mark your calendars for Saturday and Sunday, September 16 and 17. Visit grandpointnorth.com for more information.
