Antenna Cloud Farm is a music festival and artists’ retreat in the Pioneer Valley of Western Massachusetts, located on a 100 acre hilltop former dairy farm in the town of Gill. We are passionate about building a sustainable musical hub here in Gill that presents high quality musical experiences to our community while nourishing our visiting artists with all the creative inspiration that Franklin County has to offer. We are dedicated to bringing music to the underserved, and aim to expand our outreach and kids programming with each year.
Thank you all for an incredibly exciting and successful inaugural season this past summer! We could not have done it without the help and support of our community. We were thrilled to present 5 sold-out performances by world-class visiting musicians in our 80 person-capacity concert venue, with each event preceded by a week-long retreat here on the farm during which artists focused on project development. Resident artists also connected with our local community through educational and outreach events. Musical styles ranged from old and new classical to experimental pop to jazz and folk. Our audience also enjoyed pre-concert BYO picnics, hilltop sunsets, and bonfire receptions featuring delicious food donated by local artisans, Upinngil Farm and Jen’s Bread.
We are raising funds to support our 2018 season, which will feature more residencies and more concerts, including at least one "magic hour" outdoor musical event and a family concert for kids of all ages. Your donations will be used to bring artists to Franklin County, pay for their travel, food, and stay, and support the concerts and outreach events they present in our community.
Musica Franklin, a wonderful youth educational organization based in Colrain, has generously taken us on as a "fiscally sponsored" organization under their 501(c)(3) non-profit status. So all donations to Antenna Cloud Farm through this form are 100% tax-deductible! Thank you so much for your support.
