Connecticut's premier summer music festival, Gathering of the Vibes, have just released their line-up for the 2011 summer event. One of the best line-ups yet, begins with two original members of the Grateful Dead in their latest musical form, as Bob Weir and Phil Lesh bring Furthur back to the state. Also on the bill is first timers Jane's Addiction, who may be touring behind a new album. Also coming is newly elected Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Dr. John with his band the Lower 911. Musical legends Elvis Costello and Levon Helm are also in tow with their individual bands and are sure to please concert goers both young and old.

Let's not forget the enormous list of jambands that help make this festival what it is, including moe, John Butler Trio, The Rhythm Devils with Keller Williams, Dark Star Orchestra, and Assembly of Dust just to name a few.
