A Look Back at the 2019 Tulip Festival Performance Schedule

The 2019 Albany Tulip Festival featured a variety of bands and musicians from the Capital Region and beyond. Performances were held in Washington Park on the Main Stage and the Local 518 Stage. Some of the featured performers from 2019 included:

  • El Modernist
    Delivers a new take on the world of indie rock. With pulsating hooks and lush melodic waves of psychedelia, the band combines upbeat, catchy garage-rock with a modern alternative hip-hop sound.
  • The Greeting Committee
    This Kansas City-based band delivers an undeniably original selection of songs that feel as intimate as a basement recording but unfold in intricate textures and melodic sophistication.
  • KONGOS
    This is a rock band of four brothers - Johnny, Jesse, Dylan, and Danny Kongos. Sons of British singer-songwriter John Kongos. Their song "Come With Me Now" put KONGOS on the map in the United States and worldwide.
  • Girl Blue
    A powerhouse vocalist and a rare genuine talent, most especially shining as a live performer, where she has the unique ability to silence a room with just her voice and a guitar. She continues to tour regularly and record her own music independently in collaboration with Just Pretend Records.
  • Moriah Formica
    Formica has already made a name in the music industry. A top 20 contestant on Season 13 of NBC's The Voice, Moriah has wowed the coaches and the world at large with her performances.
  • Marshall Charloff & The Purple Xperience
    This is a five-piece group hailing from Prince's birthplace, Minneapolis, MN. They have been touring around the country bringing the greatest and most authentic production of Prince and The Revolution in the world to audiences of all generations.

Although the in-person festival is canceled for 2021, you will be able to enjoy virtual concerts throughout the month of May.
