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.

To toss your dreams away

For the way you went astray

And often make you curse

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!
After catching Panic 7 times last year, I'm pretty bummed to have missed out on them this year. I miss JB and Jimmy..
"I've stayed in every blue-light cheap hotel. Can't win for tryin. Dust off those rusty strings just one more time. Gonna make em shine."
had beautiful weather, no mosquitos, and loads of grate times. There were terrific shows by Wilco, Widespread Panic, Steve Kimock's Crazy Engine, Umphrey's McGee, and Dave Matthews Band. There were other bands as well but those were the ones that I caught. The sound was tremendous and the playing remarkable. I urge you all to run, not walk, to see/hear these bands the next time they appear in your area. It was truely some fun up north.
The Truth is realized in an instant, the act is practiced step by step.
