Besides your amazing host bands ALO and Hot Buttered Rum, we are excited to present our stellar 2018 lineup including our first International act at CDE. 

When formulating Camp Deep End, we started with a few simple directives; take advantage of the beautiful property, create a simple relaxed vibe, and have incredible and diverse bands to create the ultimate good time party and groove. 

You can expect multiple shows from ALO and HBR in various settings throughout the weekend and  other bands will typically play two shows though some occasionally only play once. We do not book too many bands so the schedule isn't too packed so you have time to relax and so the bands can stretch out and enjoy themselves and and play long sets. We also co-create a number of special 'natural' performances including Huckleberry Hollow, the Commissioner's Ramble, Campfire Jams and who knows what else may pop up in 2018.....

  ALO-  has the uncanny ability to continually 'wow' newcomers as well as their diehard fans with their witty and intoxicating pop-rock-jam sound. These guys can do it all and as a host band of CDE, they bring their artistry and gifts to us in many shapes and forms whether by day or night. The four musical brethren know how to read a room (or forest) to create a joyful sonic experience that is sure to forge lasting memories in the Deep End.     VIDEO

These funky, cosmic gospel rock n rollers are ready to do it again this year and who knows what web they will weave.   VIDEO

  Midtown Social-  Midtown Social is a tour-de- force on a mission to spread the message of positive social change through art and music.
