Hancock (WIVT) - The 5th annual Catskill Chill Music Festival is this weekend. The three day event starts Friday at a private summer camp in Hancock.

About 4,000 people are expected to attend. The festival will feature 65 bands, including Yonder Mountain String Band, The New Deal, and popular funk band Lettuce.

There will also be camping, paved walking paths, food and craft vendors, and a wellness village that will have yoga classes, a chiropractor, holistic healing booths and more.

"This is the perfect getaway for folks who have been trapped online and been on the cell phones all day long. There is no cell reception at the venue so once you get into the venue it's all about making friends, hearing amazing music, visiting the wellness village and we also have lots of local bands from all around the Binghamton and Catskill region coming to play," said co-founder of Catskill Chill Music Festival, Josh Cohen.
