2011 Hoxeyville Music Festival | Manistee Forest

Nestled away in the Manistee National Forest in the northern part of the mitten lie the beautiful grounds that Hoxeyville Music Festival calls home. The ninth installment of the festival proved to be one of the most exciting and eclectic lineups to date.

Bonnaroo 2011 | Part Three

Just as the day prior, the Tennessee sun decided to give me a rude awakening by cooking me alive in my tent.  Sleep is not something that happens very often at a major music festival.  Either you are up too late or the morning comes too soon.  Thank goodness for pure adrenaline and Kashi granola bars… it’s the little things that keep you grooving!  When making our way to Centeroo for the start of day 3, we stumbled across this fellow attempting to channel his inner George Harrison.  He sat the

Blottopia XII | South Elgin, IL | July 2011

Most frequently overheard at festivals like Blottopia XII that took place at Vasa Park in South Elgin, Illinois on 7/22-24 2011 is the phrase “I’m with the band.” The Chicagoland superheroes Mr. Blotto headline as they have for the past twelve years.

YarmonyGrass Festival 2011 | Review

As a relative newcomer to Colorado, I've been waiting to find a festival than can live up to the wonderful Arkansas festivals I've come to know and love over the years. I can definitely say I've found just such a festival high in the mountains at Rancho Del Rio, YarmonyGrass.
