WEEN-IGFormed by Aaron Freeman and Mickey Melchiondo, Jr. in New Hope, PA, Ween has taken on a cult-like status with legions of devoted fans around the world. Beginning with six self-released cassettes in the 1980s followed by 11 studio albums, 6 live albums and a smattering of EPs through the 1990s and 2000s, Ween’s recorded output is far-reaching in its styles moving from rock to punk to psychedelic to country to alternative and all points in between.

Elvis Costello & The Imposters bring their new show, “Imperial Bedroom & Other Chambers,” back for a coast-to-coast North American run of 20 dates this June and July. Last fall, Costello debuted the tour to rave reviews. A musicologist of formidable breadth and knowledge, Costello is perhaps best known for his performances with The Attractions, The Imposters and for concert appearances with pianist Steve Nieve. Costello was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2003.

    When are the grounds open, and the food and drink options available?

    I’ve already got tickets for Elvis, and now am planning the rest of the trip. Just realized the Cafe, and brewery tours and tastings, are closed on event nights…bummer!

      The gates will open at 5 pm. Our cafe will have a tent and we’ll be running our food truck as well. We usually have three or four additional food trucks from local vendors serving food as well. Beer is the only alcohol for sale and water will also be available. We’ll have a beer list published closer to the start of the summer.

      The brewery will open for regular service at 11 am the day after the concert as long as another concert isn’t scheduled that day.

          We aim to open camping around 4 pm to give campers time to set up shop before the grounds open at 5 pm. Occasionally camping will open a little later that 4 pm if sound check for the show runs late.

    when do we need to leave the campground the next morning, and what is the campfire situation? thanks!

      The camping area must be vacated by noon the day after the show. Camp fires, open flames, and charcoal grills are not allowed. We do allowed small propane grills though, as long as they have a shut off switch. Safety is paramount in the camping area.
