Seedstock VII offers music into the wee hours this Saturday in Cortland

Organizers say the idea for Seedstock was born on a snowy winter night in 2008, and their first music festival was held in September 2009. The seventh Seedstock, featuring several well-known regional acts and a few new faces, takes place this Saturday on Route 215 in Cortland.

The venue, Reed's Seeds, is a garden center on Owego Street, Route 215 in Cortland, near the Willowbrook Golf Club and just east of where NYS Routes 13 and 281 meet. Two stages will offer music from 11am until 3am.
