But even before you get to the line-up, the venue itself stands out as superb. Oregon Ridge is a beautiful park in Cockeysville, MD, a former ski resort with a stage instead of a chalet. Not only does the hill make for amazing sightlines, but a spectacular view as well.
Even if jam bands like Gov't Mule, the festival's top billing, aren't your thing, surely sunsets are! HAB offers an awesome opportunity to see legendary musicians play against a beautiful backdrop in our own backyard (did you know Gov't Mule is an Allman Bros side project? I didn't).
HAB's got a mom & pop, local flavor to it, too; think tie dye tees, fest food and beer trucks run by civic groups. A far cry from Firefly, which we unfortunately missed.
With a ticket price that supports a Baltimore-area arts organization, what's not to love? Check out our preview playlist, and hope to see you there!
