Cayuga Sound 2018

  • Stewart Park 1 James L Gibbs Drive Ithaca, NY, 14850 United States (map)

On a brisk weekend in upstate New York last fall, multi-platinum selling rock band X Ambassadors returned to their hometown of Ithaca, NY to host an outdoor concert and city-wide weekend festival for the people that made them who they are. The band had a breakout year with their critically acclaimed album VHS, and global smash singles "Renegades," "Unsteady," and "Jungle."

CAYUGA SOUND returns to Stewart Park from September 21-22, 2018, along with a series of local events, talks, and activations on the days leading up to the two days of musical performances in Stewart Park. X Ambassadors will again curate the eclectic lineup of music- from rock to pop to hip-hop- representing the diverse music they listened to as kids and teens in Ithaca. Cayuga Sound is geared towards the new generation of music fans whose tastes cross any and all genre borders.

Two stages will be set in the park, with a mix of national touring acts and friends of the band, to the world-class, home-grown local talent from Ithaca. Last year, the festival celebrated local business, as well as supported local nonprofits near and dear to the band's heart. Stay tuned for news on pre and post-show parties happening around town at The Haunt and more.

See you in Ithaca! Other events and experiences to be announced in coming months including a Chef's Tasting Tent, Wednesday and Thursday night shows at The Haunt, panel discussions, and more...
