My Morning Jacket

With the best weather in festival history, the seventh annual Mountain Jam at Hunter Mountain featured four days of music by some of the best – including headliners Warren Haynes Band, Gov’t Mule and My Morning Jacket.

Mountain Jam has grown tremendously in the last few years. This year included the addition of the fourth day – a “Pre-Festival Party” on Thursday night – featuring six bands, shorter entry lines, and easy camping setup.

Many of the featured artists to Mountain Jam have also grown with the festival. Grace Potter was featured on a tiny stage just a few years ago, and this year rocked in the second-to-last closing spot to one of the larger crowds of the weekend. My Morning Jacket is also a festival regular, in the past having an afternoon show, and this year closing out the entire festival.

Out of 55 total bands for the weekend, 46 were new to Mountain Jam, making the festival one of the most diverse in years, and providing a new and exciting weekend for concert-goers. With four stages, it was impossible to see every act, and with as strong of a lineup as the festival had this year, attendees were bound to miss at least of few favorites.

My Morning Jacket’s setlist for the night was as follows:
1. Victory Dance
