Minus Zero: Winter Sport and Music Festival
April 7-April 8, 2017
Minus Zero Music Festival returns to Stratton Mountain for a second year, bringing the world of electronic music and winter sports together again.
The first Vermont-based Minus Zero Festival took place on April 9 & 10, 2016, and went off with much success. The 2017 festival will be another two day event taking place on Friday and Saturday this time around on April 7 & 8, 2017. Minus Zero has also made the great decision to bring the celebration back to the home village of Stratton Mountain in South Londonberry, VT. This convenient New England winter-time resort is located just four hours North of New York City and three hours North of Boston. The Stratton Mountain resort is host to over 35 different lodging options and provides direct on site accommodations.
