Field Day To Be Rescheduled

The Field Day Music Festival, originally set for July 16-17, has been rescheduled for the summer of 2006, according to promoter Andrew Dreskin.

“A combination of factors including scheduling conflicts relating to the dates of the 2005 festival, talent availability and the continuing specter of the New York State Mass Gathering Laws led to the decision to postpone the festival,” he said in a statement.

The two-day festival was to take place at Greig Farm in the Hudson Valley, about 45 minutes south of Albany, N.Y.

The first Field Day in 2003 was stymied when a mass gathering permit was denied and the event had to move and scale back at the last minute.
