2017 Night Lights Festival at the Heron Grounds

In its seventh year at the enchanted Heron grounds in Sherman, NY (home of the Great Blue Heron Music Festival), Night Lights Music Festival will take place August 24 to 26. Produced by Ten Thirty Nine Productions (1039) and Community Beer Works, Night Lights will transform the Heron into a magical three-day SOUND & LIGHT spectacular.  

Anchored by nationally touring-space rock innovators Papadosio and funktronic masters Dopapod, Night Lights will also feature three (3) sets from WNY’s groove rockers Aqueous, as well as music from Austin-based psych rockers The Bright Light Social Hour and Colorado electronic hydro-funksters SunSquabi. 2017 will also feature Twiddle’s Mihali Savoulidis, the festival’s debut Artist at Large.  The Twiddle frontman will also showcase his skills during a one-of a kind Mihali & Frends set, featuring a festival based ensemble of musicians.

Spread over three nights and three stages, including The Public Stage (, this year’s diverse lineup features festival mainstays Lazlo Hollyfeld and Aircraft, along with Intrepid Travelers, Folkfaces and more. Tribute sets this year include Cleveland’s Broccoli Samurai (Lotus), Buffalo’s Funktional Flow (Sublime), Albany’s Mister F (Game Genie/Video Game), Relics (Pink Floyd) and a late night tribute to the Grateful Dead.

Lights and music will be on full display at the Night Lights Festival.

In addition to the music, activities will include yoga, swimming at the beach, biking/hiking, mushroom walks, and light installations. Food, craft beer from Community Beer Works, craft artisans and a variety of vendors will be available on site.

Tickets are $125 in advance. Camping and Thursday Pre-Party passes are included with all weekend passes. Friday & Saturday single day passes are available. Gates open at 12pm on Thursday.
