WHAT IS CAYUGA SOUND?


On a brisk weekend in upstate New York last fall, multi-platinum selling rock band X Ambassadors returned to their hometown of Ithaca, NY to host an outdoor concert and city-wide weekend festival for the people that made them who they are. The band had a breakout year with their critically acclaimed album VHS, and global smash singles "Renegades," "Unsteady," and "Jungle."

CAYUGA SOUND returns to Stewart Park from September 21-22, 2018, along with a series of local events, talks, and activations on the days leading up to the two days of musical performances in Stewart Park. X Ambassadors will again curate the eclectic lineup of music- from rock to pop to hip-hop- representing the diverse music they listened to as kids and teens in Ithaca. Cayuga Sound is geared towards the new generation of music fans whose tastes cross any and all genre borders.

Two stages will be set in the park, with a mix of national touring acts and friends of the band, to the world-class, home-grown local talent from Ithaca. Last year, the festival celebrated local business, as well as supported local nonprofits near and dear to the band's heart. Stay tuned for news on pre and post-show parties happening around town at The Haunt and more.


See you in Ithaca! Other events and experiences to be announced in coming months including a Chef's Tasting Tent, Wednesday and Thursday night shows at The Haunt, panel discussions, and more...

ARTISTS

X Ambassadors

X Ambassadors’ debut album VHS reflects on the events that shaped lead vocalist and lyricist Sam Harris and his older brother, keyboardist Casey Harris’ life growing up in Ithaca, NY. “It was us looking back on everything that made us who we are,” says Sam. The gold-certified album, which Rolling Stone called “bombastic rock that’s as stomping as it is diaristic, leavened by big-tent pop hooks and a hint of hip-hop swagger,” debuted at No. 7 on Billboard’s Top 200 chart and spawned the double platinum-selling “Renegades,” which spent 12 consecutive weeks at No. 1 on the Alternative chart, and the double-platinum “Unsteady,” which went Top 10 at Alternative, Hot AC, and Top 40 radio. The success of VHS sent X Ambassadors on a nearly two-year touring odyssey that found them winning over fans around the world and performing at the Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Life is Beautiful, and Shaky Knees festivals, among others, and establishing themselves as a world-class rock band.

STEWART PARK, ITHACA


Stewart Park is a great place to relax and socialize on the southeastern shore of Cayuga Lake in Ithaca, New York.  Originally a trolley park in the 1890s, the City of Ithaca has owned and maintained Stewart Park since 1921. The Park is enjoyed steadily by Ithacans and visitors alike.

Stewart Park offers plenty of green space as well as a playground, a large pavilion, benches, barbecue stands, picnic tables, fishing spots, tennis courts and a seasonal carousel.  The Park is a popular place for all kinds of gatherings: festivals, family barbecues, volleyball games, dances, and more.  It’s a also a great place to watch the sun go down and just enjoy nature.  Stewart Park is close to Ithaca Youth Bureau and the Visitors Center and is accessible on foot or by bike via the Cayuga Waterfront Trail as well as by car and the #13 and #13X TCAT bus.
