Ben & Jerry's
Announces Lineup

By Dan Hust
BETHEL — August 5, 2003 – The greatly anticipated lineup of Ben & Jerry’s “One World One Heart” Festival and 25th anniversary bash was finally released Wednesday afternoon, and the names are suitably big.
Headlining the environmentally and socially themed two-day concerts will be Tracy Chapman, Third Eye Blind, LeAnn Rimes and Darius Rucker, along with George Clinton and Parliament/Funkadelic, Soulive, The Wild Magnolias, Terrance Simien and Recycled Percussion.
Smaller, local acts will appear alongside the stars during the August 23-24 festival, including fiddling duo Erin and John Slaver of Liberty, Fritz’s Polka Band, Gregory Douglass, Somerville (originally of Monticello), Salad Days, The Kelly Project, The Jeanette Williams Band and Babaloo.
Music won’t be all that’s happening at the Woodstock site in Bethel those days, however.
There’ll be local vendors and craftspeople, food, socially conscious activities and, of course, lots of ice cream.
For more information, call 1-800-BJFESTS or go to www.benjerry. com to order $32-per-person-per-day tickets. (You can earn free tickets by signing up friends to vote, according to the Web site – and if you’re under 13 and accompanied by an adult, you don’t have to pay to get into the festival at all.)
