my faves are gathering of the vibes and nelson ledges love the vibes been doin that since forever just got to nelson ledges this past summer and swam in that quarrya and it was great as was the music at both festivals
grateful fest rocks-went from 2000 to 2003-the shower's up by the front gate, shhhh!-always a great line up-go a day early & stay a day late to avoid the overzealous types w/the flashing lights in garrettsville-NLQP's gotten a little off w/the cleveland thug types, lets get some Family there for it to be the place it's meant to be-maybe even some of the old WC?
did I spell that right? Labor Day in Ohio? who's going, besides me?
I went to this festival 4 years in a row, with the exception of this past year (sadly). All I can say is that this festival has never let me down. It is great. The vibe is by far the chillest "heady" experience around. The staff and audience alike are really cool. It doesn't always get the "biggest" acts, but I think that is part of what makes it sweet. Firstly, you are likely to see bands that you might not normally see, but love. Secondly, it helps keep it getting blown out and huge. It is also in a great location in the California Sierras. Simply put, a wonderful time!
..It is on 5 stages. One very small (GE Smith), one medium (Rosanne Cash) and 3 very big (Willie).
I'll take the NOT STRICTLY BLUEGRASS FESTIVAL in Golden Gate Park every Oct. It's grown to cover 3 days and stages. In the past few years they've had hundreds of acts including:
Elvis Costello, Emmylou Harris, Willie Nelson, Joan Baez, Ricky Skaggs, Bob Weir and The Waybacks, Dolly Parton, Billy Bragg, Doc Watson, Hot Tuna and many others.
It's a great scene (gets a little overwhelming when 20,000 people hit one stage to see Dolly Parton or Willie at once, in a space meant for a lot less) and it's ENTIRELY FREE> First week in Oct. this year. See you in San Fran.
As some of you may already know, during the RatDog set, the actions of some maniac at the Gathering on Saturday night resulted in a Bridgeport, Ct., police officer being injured...The following is a mailing address, as well as eMail for you to send some healing Vibes to that man who was just trying to do his job:

After 4 long years of memories, camping, music, and friendships made in Black River Falls Wisconsin, the long strange trip is over for the Grateful Garcia Gathering.The venue in Black River Falls will no longer be holding music festivals after this summer is over. The new home for the Grateful Garcia Gathering is now hosted at Legend Valley ( www.LegendValley.net ), just 20 minutes East of Columbus Ohio!
Legend Valley's (formerly Buckeye Lake Music Center in Ohio) owner Steve Trickle has been in contact with the organizers of the Grateful Garcia Gathering - Tim Sundog Corcoran and Anthony Lee, since last January about the possibility's of holding it at Legend Valley, a place where the Grateful Dead performed June 11th 1993. Steve said, "This would be the natural setting for the Grateful Garcia Gathering to be held each summer". The agreement was made by a mere handshake, and a smile! The 3G's is always set to date in between Jerry Garcia's birthday August 1st, and his untimely passing of August 9th. The Grateful Garcia Gathering is scheduled for the weekend of July 31st - August 2nd 2008.
Legend Valley is Ohio's #1 camping, music outdoor amphitheater. Its also home to Hookahville, Cabin Fever Festival, and Built to Last. Many great artists have graced the stages at Legend Valley such as The Grateful Dead, Ratdog, Bruce Hornsby, David Grisman, Arlo Guthrie, Ekoostik Hookah, Blue Travelers, Willie Nelson, Leon Russell, AC/DC, Waylon Jennings, just to name a few!
