Despite two evenings devastated by severe thunderstorms and even hail, the 2008 Wakarusa Festival held at Clinton Lake, Kansas powered through it all and still provided its attendees a great weekend of music, camping, and all around good times.

Grateful Web's Tim Hurley was on hand at this year's Wakarusa to cover the festival.  Tim's pictures are here!  And check back soon for Tim's write-up of last weekend's Wakarusa.

 

Enjoy,

I almost didn't go to Wakarusa this year.  I had sworn never to go to Bonnaroo, the venue just being too large in my opinion, but the scheduled acts were just too sick to turn down.  Not thinking that I could swing both weekends, I made a hard decision based mostly on financial reasons.

Greetings All:
