    Default Wakarusa 2012

    I looked through the message board and couldn't find a Wakarusa thread so I've decided to start one. So forgive me if I have overlooked it. It's surprising that there isn't one already to me. This is such an awesome festival, they have an amazing lineup and setup every year for this one. It's on it's 8th year, read up on it here http://goo.gl/AAqRT

    Lineup artists that are very neato to me are: Pretty Lights, Primus, Avett Brothers, Umphrey's McGee, Big Gigantic, Beats Antique, and there is just a TON more that look really good. If you are into Jam and Electronica music this festival is filled with it.

    oh yeah I almost forgot that the price of tickets to this is increasing midnight on April 8th. Just a warning to those of you who are wanting tickets but prefer for them to be cheaper.

    With The Avett Brothers, the songs are honest: just chords with real voices singing real melodies. But, the heart and the energy with which they are sung, is really why people are talking, and why so many sing along. Sing along at Wakarusa! http://youtu.be/R6l-mHvdUpw

    I went to Waka last year - had a great time on the mountain. The crowd is way crunchier than Coachella (more hippies, awesome fire juggling/hula hoops, live art, crazy costumes, lots of those sky lanterns, fireworks (mortar shells) set off in main camping, tons of dubstep - stages play all night long). Here are my three most memorable things from the fest: 1. it was hot and humid as a mofo - take a trip to the river just up the road if you go 2. MMJ was awesome 3. Several (at least 4) people tried to sell me ketamine and it was weird.

    I just got back from this festival. I really enjoyed it however there were some cancellations due to a tornado watch. I def agree with drewbles about more hippies, sky lanterns, fire spinning, etc which is some stuff that I truly enjoyed we do not see as much at coachella. Another perk is that if you camp in the main venue camping area, you can pretty much hear music all day from your campsite.

    Some unique festivities not at Cochella: sunday morning drum circle put on by the drummer of a group called 'Quixotic'. Huge water slide (this year it rained 4/5 days so I did not utilize this as much), lots of vendors selling cloths, art, etc.
