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!!

Mystik Toyz will be returning to the Grateful Garcia Gathering, but with a whole lot more FUN this time... A prominent positive force at all the festivals, Mystik Toyz is always on a mission to teach toys, entertain, and inspire people to play! You can expect Fire Shows, Wandering Entertainment such as Mr Fun on stilts, maybe a parade and, of course, an ongoing "Spin Zone" where you can play any time of the day (or night). Jam to toys as you jam to the music and have some FUN!

This summer you'll be entertained by Beautiful Topless Firedancers swirling and hooping though the summer nights at the Grateful Garcia Gathering! Some with body paint, and some without! Its going to be an awesome time at the 3G's this summer, so don't miss the bus!
