2016 Gathering Of The Vibes Canceled

The Gathering of the Vibes, Connecticut's largest rock festival, won't move forward in 2016, according to a statement on the festival's website.

"As you know, we pour our hearts and souls into producing this "rare & different' festival," founder Ken Hays writes, "but after a seemingly never-ending amount of thought and deliberation between myself and those closest to me, I've made the decision not to move forward with Gathering of the Vibes in 2016... we need a time out."

Hays launched the Vibes at SUNY Purchase in 1996, a year after the death of Grateful Dead guitarist Jerry Garcia....
