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?
