HAGE FEST 99 – August 23-25th, 2019 – 108 Johnson Ln, Oxford NY 13830

Hage rhymes with Page.

Hage Fest started as a birthday party in Newark, NY with a few bands that were close friends. It was originally a one day event that was characterized by hard partying, heavy metal, and fun. Since then, it has slowly grown and morphed into a loving community of friends and family.

An annual event, Hage Fest now features 3 full days of music with genres varying from folk music to EDM to death metal and everywhere in between. We tend to put softer bands earlier in the day, and get progressively heavier as the evening closes… but this is not really a rule.

There are only a few rules, and they’re pretty easy to follow.

  1. No Fights
  2. No Weapons
  3. No Dogs (Some exceptions may apply)
  4. Under Age Drinking is STRICTLY forbidden (We ID and wrist band)
  5. No Glass Bottles (Except liquor, keep it clean)
  6. Obey any signs, respect the property / keep it clean
  7. Everybody out of the river at 9pm

Several Hage Fests were a net loss. We spent more than we made back in tickets and T Shirt sales. However, as the show started to grow bigger, we have found that the last couple of years broke even. Last year, we found a budget surplus at the end. We made a decision several years back that we wanted to give back in the event of a surplus.

In 2018 we were able to make a donation of $300 to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. The AFSP funds research, runs educational programs, and supports survivors of suicide loss. The AFSP does not push gun control measures, but focuses on helping people understand suicide and offering help for people who may be at risk.

Our goal for 2019 is to double that contribution or better. Please join us as we celebrate life, friendship, and music together.
