Space Bacon - Satellite Ranch Music Festival 2018


Space Bacon has been on a steady ascension since their performance at Satellite Ranch last year. By all standards, they’ve had a seriously productive year. Their sound is a mix between livetronica and psychedelic rock n’ roll, guaranteed to keep you moving. The four-piece from Brooklyn has been testing new waters to find a voice that is authentic and unique to them. The energy of their fan base has been building and they’re on route to have the best summer of their career thus far. They’ve packed out venues that once were near empty, they played stages that they’ve dreamt about for years, and their fan base has substantially grown along the east coast. After you see them live for the first time, it isn’t hard to tell that Space Bacon has the “it” factor – they’re characters and people are naturally drawn to them and their music. The band that was formed in a basement on Arthur Avenue in the Bronx has always aimed to do one thing – to move people, physically and mentally, through live music. They have a raw yet polished approach that can lift you up and slam you into the ground. And they’re only getting better. They made such a lasting impression on the festival last year that we gave them not one, but two sets this year! Make sure that you’re at Satellite Ranch on September 1st – 2nd to witness them throw down two massive sets fueled by high energy improvisation. Prepare for lift off.


Satellite Ranch Gears Up For Our Second Year

Funkstronaut Productions is beyond excited to announce the return of Satellite Ranch Music & Arts Festival at Mountain Sky in Scott Township, PA. From September 1st to 3rd, Satellite Ranch will go into orbit and we need your help to make sure that this year is even better than the last. This festival is as grassroots as it gets, built around a community of bands and DJ’s that have a deep-seated passion for the music. If you’re looking to end your summer with an intimate weekend, built around an ideal balance of music, Satellite Ranch is the festival for you.

This year’s lineup is more than solid for a fantastic price. We selected our headliners with all of our patrons in mind. With that being said, we feel like we hit the nail on the head. Silver Fameus is the unique collaboration of Ben Silver and Allen Aucoin (drummer of the Disco Biscuits). The DJ/drummer duo is ready to deliver deep house, driven by drums, under the stars. Eliot Lipp has developed a unique style of electronic beats and soulful samples while always playing off the crowd. Joe Nice has established himself as one of the most legendary dubstep artists in North America. Tweed will bring the grooves. And Space Bacon is coming back with their tenacious style of jamtronica, for not one, but two sets!

Last year laid the groundwork for what’s to come – if you were in attendance, you already know. Satellite Ranch is an intimate three-day festival built by a community of friends for a community of friends. Our first year was a fantastic learning experience. With our patrons in mind, we made some minor changes, and are looking forward to seeing the results. Our vision will come to life on Labor Day weekend, and if you’re reading this, we can’t wait to see you.

This year’s festival will include an early entry Friday night party, and continue with innovative art, music, and lights, as well as provide an additional fifth stage, late night silent disco under the stars, yoga, disc golf, live painting, workshops, vendors, intergalactic moments, easy and enjoyable car camping, and much more. We’ll also be eliminating our VIP offerings, and making the entire Satellite Ranch experience, along with our late night indoors sets, inclusive for everyone.

Join us for an unforgettable weekend of music and end your summer in style at Satellite Ranch.

Hello, everyone!
Today some of you will enter thru the gates to embark on your mission at the inaugural Satellite Ranch Music & Arts Festival 09/01/17-09/02/17. We cannot contain our excitement nor properly put it into words. With that being said, we have some breaking news for all of the attendees.
It is with a heavy heart, that we must announce the cancelation of our anticipated headlining act, Lord RAJA. Unfortunately, Lord Raja had suffered a loss of a close family member and we know how difficult it must be to deal with. We wish Lord Raja and his family our sincerest condolences and support thru this difficult time.
However, with that unfortunate news comes a silver lining. We were able to lock down an extremely gifted producer and DJ who we feel will fit perfectly with the vibes we are curating. We would like to welcome Starkey to the Satellite Ranch family and we hope you’re just as excited as we are for his upcoming performance. Starkey will be substituting for Lord Raja’s set on the Supernova Stage on Saturday, 09/02/2017, from 7:15pm-8:30pm.
The Funkstronaut Productions team hopes that everyone understands the circumstances and arrives to the festival with an open mind and ready to party. We’d like to give a shout out to the team at Rogue Agency for being extremely professional and working quickly to help us find an amazing replacement during this time.

See you on the mountain..!

Updates and FAQs

Hello everyone!

We are only 3 days away from the very first Satellite Ranch Music & Arts Festival. We can hardly contain our excitement and cannot wait for you all to experience what we’ve worked so hard on to put together for your audio and visual enjoyment.
With that being said, we have a few important updates and questions we’d like to address to ensure everyone is on the same page and ready for the weekend.


-We will be opening the gates for early arrival on Thursday, 08/31/2017 from 6pm to 11pm. If you are not a VIP ticket holder, there will be a $10 entry fee. The amazing local duo, SUICAUDIO, will be performing in the Launchpad in the evening accompanied by a few DJs who will be performing additional sets throughout the festival.

-We’ve had a last minute schedule change. Patrick Richards will be performing on Friday from 10pm-11pm, and Ralphie Gucci will be performing Saturday from 1am-2am.

-The weather is looking like sunshine with a chance of light showers for us as of now. The venue is on top of a mountain and it is the beginning of September. It is looking like we may experience some chilly weather at night around 50 degrees. While we will have a few campfires on premises, and you may be heated up from dancing all night, we do recommend packing anything extra as far as clothes and camping gear to ensure you have a comfortable, warm, and dry time.


Q: “Will there be car side camping?”
A: Yes. There is enough room on the property for everyone to have an opportunity to camp next to their car.

Q: “Can we bring an RV or a camper?”
A: Yes, you can bring an RV or a camper. There will be a fee of $20 for each vehicle of this size, unless you are a VIP ticket holder.

A: The gates will first open on Thursday, 08/31/2017, from 6pm-11pm for early entry for attendees. On Friday and Saturday, the gates will be open from 10am-12am each night.

Q: “Is there re-entry?”
A: Yes, there is re-entry. However, re-entering vehicles are still subject to search and parking fee of $5 (unless you’re a VIP ticket holder).

Q: “Are the work shops VIP only?”
A: No. Although the work shops are on the stage where the VIP ONLY acts are hosted, the work shops are available for everyone to attend.

Q: “Will we be able to upgrade to VIP at the gate?”
A: We will have the final answer for this on Thursday, before gates open. VIP is a strictly limited amount and we are close to sell-out. If there are any left over, they will also be first come, first serve.

Q: “Can I bring my dog?”
A: No.

Q: “Can I bring sound equipment for my campsite?”
A: We want to stress that there is no renegade stage being allowed, nor can their be amplified sound. We do recommend bringing BlueTooth speakers or acoustic instruments if you’re so inclined.

That’s it for now and stay tuned for more updates and FAQs as they develop. We will see you on the Mountain in a few days..!
