  • Antenna Cloud Farm is located in the Pioneer Valley of Western Massachusetts, and rests on a 100-acre hilltop former dairy farm in the town of Gill. Rooted in the genuine belief in the power of music as a catalyst for joy, hope, and structural societal change, ACF’s mission is three-fold: to present unique live musical experiences of the highest quality; to create innovative retreat summits for artist-activists, cultural leaders, and change-makers that focus on project development, collaboration, network-building, self-care as a radical act, and cultural advocacy; and to serve our local communities and under-resourced populations through interactive workshops and innovative musical programming, in collaboration with local change-making partners and organizations in and around Franklin County.

  • Upcoming Fundraising Events

    (stay tuned for dates and invitations!)

    In the dead of winter, you find yourself sipping a fruity drink, having WAY too much fun over Zoom, throwing TONS of cash at random & wonderful items on the silent auction, and grooving to the sounds of 60’s Tropicalia, which you find delightfully and surprisingly relaxing, given that it’s music meant for protesting structural oppression.

    The word “Matsuri” (meaning “festival” in Japanese) refers to the rituals that strengthen the bonds and solidarity within a community, and that connect that community to the gods and deities. We will gather on the hill on a warm spring day over: cocktails, musical performances, homemade Japanese food, creative workshopping and mini-retreat activities, mindfulness, poetry…need we say more?

  • TICKETS / INFORMATION

    The 2022 summer season of ACF will be announced in the Spring

    ACF TICKETS:

    General Admission: $20
    Youth Admission (11-25): $10
    Kids (10 & under): FREE
    Reduced Rate Admission: $10 (If the price of General Admission is financially prohibitive, please select this option. If the reduced rate is still too high, feel free to contact us directly.)

     

    WHAT TO BRING:

    The ACF grounds are open 2 hours prior to each concert. Bring a picnic or take a stroll before the show! We encourage you to bring a lawn chair or blanket, bug spray, hat, and any other items that will support your outdoor concert experience. Please, no glassware or dogs.
     

    ACCESSIBILITY:

    For concerts held at Antenna Cloud Farm, dedicated priority parking and concert seating will be readily accessible to guests with limited mobility or specific needs. The distance between parking and priority seating is approximately 200 feet, and spans a relatively flat expanse of mowed lawn.
     
    ACF concerts are family-friendly. We do ask that families with active children be mindful of their proximity to other guests and the stage. Portable restrooms, including one that is ADA-compliant, will be available to guests and located next to the priority parking area.

     

    COVID AND SAFETY:

    As state mandates change, and as businesses and public spaces are fully reopened as of May 29, masks at Antenna Cloud Farm are no longer required. We nevertheless request that guests consider wearing masks while moving in more densely-crowded areas, and are mindful of their proximity to other people. The safety of each guest and artist is very important to us, and we ask that everyone exercise both caution and respect. Please stay home if you are feeling ill, or have interacted with anybody who has been feeling ill.
     
    All festival areas are maintained and mowed, but ticks are an ever-present possibility here in New England. A tick removal kit and a first aid kit will be made readily available at each ACF concert.

  • RETREATS

    In addition to presenting concerts, Antenna Cloud Farm hosts retreats of varying lengths for artists who are invited to reside in a fully furnished and stocked guest house on the farm. Our aim is to provide a variety of inspiring and creative spaces in which guests can focus on projects and wellbeing while enjoying the peaceful views and immediate access to forests and open spaces.
