The SUPERTONE Music Festival returns to Columbia County for a third summer, showcasing all that is vibrant and original in rock, roots and honky-tonk music on a technicolor stage for an upstate audience.
This year, Oldtone Productions has teamed up with Basilica Hudson to present the show in our solar-powered reclaimed 1880s factory on the waterfront.
June – November 2019

Basilica Hudson is proud to continue its Back Gallery artist in residence program through 2019. The series invites artists to explore the location itself as muse and to create work with the eclectic present and past of this river city as central inspiration.
Back Gallery Opening events are the culmination of artists spending time in and experiencing the space, before opening it up to the public.

We were proud to place our reclaimed factory in the hands of many of Hudson’s inspiring community groups in 2018. The programs of our friends and neighbors complemented our own expanded free community programming, introducing new audiences and new horizons to Basilica. From environmental and green energy fairs to our annual marketplaces of the independent and the beautifully handmade, 2018 saw us build upon long-standing relationships with our Hudson Valley neighbors and friends, as well as meet new audiences through the shared language of art and culture.

Thanks to new support in 2018, we were able to make our film program entirely FREE for the first time since we opened, inviting audiences to experience the power of the big screen at no cost to attendees. Our Basilica Non-Fiction Screening Series focused on showcasing diverse stories from one of a kind voices, from a special preview hometown screening of Daniel McCabe’s unflinching, affecting This Is Congo to Stephanie Wang-Breal’s intimate, intricate Blowin’ Up, with many filmmakers joining us in discussion following the screenings.
In the wake of our eighth season of programming, we embark on hibernation and gain perspective on where we went together this year. As always we welcomed talented new individuals to the Basilica family in the form of visiting artists, activists, collaborators, supporters and team members. We dreamed big and expanded our programming across the board, from film, to music, to visual art, to environmental advocacy. Thanks to enhanced support we increased the number of FREE programs that we were able to offer, to more readily come together in this remarkable river city.
Here are some highlights:
As our 8th season of programming comes to an end, we thank you for joining us at our programs throughout the year.
As you may know, it’s been only two years since Basilica Hudson earned our official 501c3 nonprofit status, which has allowed us to dream of expanded programs and service to our region and our community.
