There have been big anti-fracking concerts in central New York before, many featuring Ithaca bands, but this weekend is the first major one in Ithaca itself.
The Cayuga Lake Big Splash is at Stewart Park, Sunday 5 August, from 11 a.m. until sunset on the lake.
The GrassRoots Festival dance tent will be set up for the event, with music from noon until 9:00. The line-up of bands is Driftwood, the Grady Girls, Double E, the Sim Redmond Band, and Donna the Buffalo.
There will be tabling by anti-fracking groups. Food and drink will be available, including Finger Lakes wines and beers.
