New Riders of the Purple Sage (NRPS) and more than two dozen of the top bands in central New York will perform at Fletch Fest 2012 in Turin, NY on August 17-19. New Riders of the Purple Sage is an American country rock band that emerged from the psychedelic rock scene in San Francisco, California in 1969, and its original lineup included several members of the Grateful Dead.

Crooked Brook will print the t-shirts for this event.

Although the most popular method of printing t-shirts is screen printing, Crooked Brook t-shirts are printed using Direct To Garment Printing (digital garment printing or DTG) which is the process of using inkjet printers to print an image directly onto t-shirts without the use of screens like with screen printing, which requires a lot of setup e.g., creating screens for each color. In addition, DTG printing uses eco-friendly, water soluble ink, unlike some screen printing methods that layer Plastisol (a suspension of PVC particles in a plasticizer) on top of the t-shirt. The only requirement for DTG printing is for the image to be high resolution, resulting in photograph quality printing with no setup fee or minimums for custom t-shirts.

About Fletch Fest 2012

Fletch Fest 2012, three days of camping and music featuring the New Riders of the Purple Sage and more than two dozen of the best bands in central New York, will be held at Snow Ridge in Turin, NY on August 17-19. The Gypsy Hollow Promotions production is being hosted by the band SLUG, who will be performing with Lindsay Dombeck on the Blue stage Friday and Saturday night.

Fletch Fest 2012 was born from the wedding plans of Forestport couple Stephen and Kellie Fletcher, who instead of a traditional wedding reception decided to invite their family, friends and several of their favorite local musicians to a two-day concert instead. The event went so well they decided to turn it into a showcase for musicians from throughout central New York.

There will vendors, food, refreshments, and fully stocked bar available inside the venue. RV camping and full amenities will be available and free tent camping will be allowed.

$50 pre-sale tickets to Fletch Fest are available now. For the full festival lineup, and tickets visit http://www.fletchfest.com.
