I wanna portray Whippersnap Arts & Music Festival 2013 as that scene from the Lion King where Rafiki holds Simba up over the African Pride Lands. Alas, much like Scar and Mufasa there is an obscured version of the truth. If I was to sing the praises of this festival, I would be naïve to the dark side that it did have.

This inaugural festival is one that I will never miss. I was only there for Saturday night and Sunday afternoon, but I did not sleep, and in that short period of time, I was able to completely capture the magic and vibe of this festival.
