Damn I'm jealous! How was WP? I am so excited they are coming back to red rocks this year - 3 nights. Also excited about 2 nights of David Grisman Bluegrass Experience in July. To top it off I am surprising my wife with tix to Rush at red rocks. Supposedly they are playing the entire Moving Pictures album. Let's just say I about maxed out the old credit card this weekend :-) Just really hoping I get a chance to see Furthur again this summer... come on guys there are plenty of slots available at RR! Hurry, they fill up fast... please!! I'll go ahead and book you for 3 nights - how about over a weekend in August ;-) (I wish I had that power!!)

Wanee

All I can say is that a bunch of us Dead.netters just went to see ABB and Scaring the Children at Wanee in Florida......WOW, what a nice place that was, I was very impressed with the whole staging and set up of this huge music park at the Spirit of the Sawanee River......HINT HINT HINT...All Deadhead Family....We could have a SERIOUSLY good time at that place if it was ALL Dead!

What a blast.

as I recall

we've got an actual topic for the Oregon Country Fair. It seems to have made quite the impression.

HSB features an incredible lineup every year. I don't go because my days of crowd scenes in Golden Gate Park are behind me, but for the younger and less stamina impaired I heartily recommend it.

Oregon Country Fair

By far the most special summer festival I have ever been to is the Oregon Country Fair, near Eugene, second weekend in July. Currently we love the Mateel Community Center's Summer Arts Festival at Benbow Lake in Humboldt County,and the Kate Wolf Memorial Music Festival in Laytonville, both super mellow, laid back events. Hardly Strictly Bluegrass is free and great every October in Golden Gate Park if you don't mind hanging out with about half a million people in a really stiff sea breeze. Any free concert in Golden Gate Park is great fun. An event that draws a slightly different crowd is the Redwood Run in Piercy. If you can stand the sound of bikes, the sight of bikers and the smell of exhaust, the Rewood Run is a great party though, sadly, their musical line-up has been somewhat lacking in the last couple of years.

I've been to grateful fest

I've been to grateful fest for the last several years, (as well as a variety of other festivals- all good, rothbury, GOTV, 10,000 Lakes, etc.) and as much as I *love* NLQP, it seems as though events there have gone down the tube in the last few years. It's depressing. I'm currently looking for the new "hotspot" in the region, and have heard good things about Terrapin Hill. Any reviews on the scene there or suggestions as far as other venues in the midwest that are more chilled out than the ledges have been for the last few years? The paranoia at the Ledges has really got the best of me, and in the last few years I've had little desire to attend shows at the Ledges due to these concerns.
suggestions appreciated!!

Guess this year it will be the Allgood Festival in Masontown, WV

Just got an e-mail stating that Furthur will be the headliner! We've been twice before and had a great time both times! Also Railroad Earth, Yonder Mountain String Band, Widespread Panic and Dark Star Orchestra this year. Gonna' get our tickets when they go on sale Friday!
