Franti and his band, best known for the song “Say Hey (I Love You),” will take the stage Sept. 16, the opening night of the two-day festival at Castoro Cellars’ Whale Rock Vineyard off Highway 46, according to the Udsen family, which owns the winery. Jamestown Revival will perform Sept. 17.
Held in a natural amphitheater, Whale Rock Music and Arts Festival features musical performances on two stages plus art displays, yoga, children’s crafts and more. Castoro Cellars changed the name of the annual event, formerly known as Beaverstock, in March after receiving a cease-and-desist demand from New York’s Woodstock Music and Art Fair, claiming trademark infringement.
Two-day passes for the festival are now on sale for $70 each, through April 30. (The price jumps to $80, then $90, after that.) One-day passes will be available after May 1.
