Crowd Drone Ciderstock

Wow. Just, WOW! Ciderstock 2016 has come and gone. Our backyard was filled with over 7000 of our closest friends and fans. Vermont didn’t make us wait 5 minutes for beautiful weather, and kept the sun shining all day.

All we can say is… THANK YOU!  Thank you for waiting in line as it stretched around the entire cidery. Thank you for turning our hay bale cupcakes into epic dance stages. Most of all, thank you for making this the most memorable 25th Anniversary party to EVER be had.


Let’s take a look at what went down.

Stage went up, the crowd rolled in, & everyone jumped on their phones and embraced the #Ciderstock vibe! Untitled-1

The stage came to life as Villanelles kicked off the show, followed by Wild Adriatic

Ciderstock wouldn’t be complete without an epic Woodchuck chant.

Capping off their summer tour and following the launch of their new album, Dirty Heads then took the stage!IMG_0939Needless to say, the crowd went wild.Screen Shot 2016-08-22 at 2.31.45 PMAs the sun went down, the colors changed, and Ciderstock prepared for their headliner…

The night then ended with an explosion of fireworks, and that was that!

Again… WOW. To all of our friends and fans, thank you again for making our third annual music festival the most BADA$$ yet. We wouldn’t be where we are today without you.

Let’s watch those fireworks one more time…
