The Andy Animal “Meltasia” festival takes place in Catskill, New York. It is a focused rock’n’roll weekend event that brings together the coolest of the cool underground tastemakers, like the Black Lips, Shannon & the Clams, Pentagram, Kool Keith, Bloodshot Bill, White Mystery, Mungo Jerry, and Black Oak Arkansas. In 2016, comedian Neil Hamburger was the host, hundreds of people camped in an abandoned zoo, and harmonica master Daddy Long Legs even played in a former monkey cage.

Very special thanks to Orange Amplifiers and Ludwig Drums for providing the backline to the main stage. You make rock’n’roll possible!
