What may distinguish Basilica SoundScape from other such festivals is not only its concern for connections and overlaps in the performances and work presented but also its attention to creature comforts. Overnight guests to the event--those who are not staying at one of Hudson's B&Bs--can pitch a tent at Meadowgreens Campgrounds in Ghent, where there are lots of big trees creating plenty of shade, there are restrooms, showers, and electricity, and there are shuttle buses traveling to and from Basilica Hudson at regularly scheduled intervals.
There will also be a pop-up shop called BunnyBrains Fire Sale, a collaboration of John Doe Records and Likeminded Objects, offering such services as hair braiding, toe tattoos, and therapy for "Jimi Hendrix problems in a John Mayer world," as well as making objects to sell on the spot.
Weekend passes are $60; day passes are $35. To learn more about the event and purchase your pass to be part of it all, visit the Basilica Hudson website.
