Hollystock 2016 to rock Mount Holly, Aug 13 and 14

Hollystock will rock Mount Holly, New Jersey, for the fifth year this weekend.

The annual music festival has expanded to two days, featuring more than 55 area bands on four outdoor stages in Iron Works Park.

Ginger Coyle, Jeremy and the Harlequins, Lovebettie, Face the King, In the Presence of Wolves, Jutaun and Soraia will be among the showcase of local and regional emerging musicians.

Mount Holly’s very own indie-rockers, Love for Pluto, will also join the lineup.

The video above (apparently shot with a drone) shows the band Kid Felix performing at Hollystock 2013. Kid Felix will also return to the festival this year. 

The event will have a beer and wine garden for those old enough to legally imbibe, plus 16 food trucks and vendors, including The Cow and the Curd, My Four Suns, Amsterdam Waffle Company and Brother Bear’s BBQ.

Admission is free, but attendees can opt to buy a $50 VIP access package that includes an extra large tee shirt, preferred parking pass and a commemorative lanyard granting access to meet the bands.

Parking can be found in municipal lots on Charles St., Park Dr. and Paxon St. Another large lot is available at the County Courthouse on Rancocas Rd.

Saturday, Aug. 13, 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. and Sunday, Aug. 14, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.- Iron Works Park, Mt. Holly, NJ.
