Earlier this week we announced that Glass Animals and Little Dragon will play their first Ommegang show on July 29, 2017 at 7 pm. Tickets for the concert are on sale now via DSP Shows.
Glass Animals, an English indie rock band, is well-known for their hit song Gooey. They released their sophomore album, How to Be a Human Being, in August 2016. Little Dragon is a Grammy-nominated electronic music band that hails from Sweden. This is the first show either band has played at Ommegang.
“This is an exciting new pairing for our summer concert series and we can’t wait to hear their unique sounds at the brewery in July,” says Tara Ritchko, Events, Hospitality and Visitor Experience Manager at Ommegang. “DSP Shows and the Ommegang team enjoy introducing concert goers to a variety of musical genres at the brewery and this match up continues that tradition.”
“We have had great success with this act in Buffalo and Ithaca, and we look forward to continued success in Cooperstown with an exciting support act to round out the bill,” says DSP Shows President Dan Smalls. “We strive to bring the best artist and fan experiences together at Ommegang, and we feel Glass Animals are a perfect fit.”
Tickets are $40 in advance and $46 at the gate. Families are welcome for this all-ages show, and children ages five and under do not require a ticket. Camping passes are available on a first come, first served basis for the first 1000 people to purchase a ticket. Camping is an additional $15 per person and available only through DSP Shows’ website. If camping does not sell out online ahead of the show, passes will be available at the gate for $20 per person.

About GLASS ANIMALS’ current album
How to Be a Human Being is a multi-layered, nuanced album that uniquely splices together 40 years of sonic history in a way that’s emphatically forward-sounding. In the characters and themes explored, the record creates a world for fans to inhabit. With every listen comes further insight, not just into Glass Animals’ universe but the human condition itself. From the depths of “Agnes” to the danceable humor of “Life Itself,” this second album is a zeitgeist-leaning, intrepid exploration into what makes us all tick, told from the viewpoint of four guys who have experienced life in its most extreme and unexpected form for the past two years. It doesn’t just connect with your feet – it connects with your brain, your heart, your soul
About LITTLE DRAGON’s current album

Over the course of four critically-lauded albums, Little Dragon have established themselves as a band keen to never rest on their laurels – constantly prodding and playing with the boundaries of their sound. The band’s fifth album is currently in the making and tentatively planned for 2017.
