The season for the 2012 music festivals is in full swing! Music festivals have become a huge part of American culture that was started in August of 1969 when Woodstock took place. Today, people who hadn’t been born yet know about Woodstock.
The Woodstock festival, (“An Aquarian Exposition: 3 Days of Peace & Music”), took the world by storm. Performances by such greats as Santana, The Grateful Dead, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix were but a few of the performers that highlighted the event.
Not much has changed at music festivals today, they are packed with music fans, and the hottest music artists; partying goes on from morning till late at night, and the preferred accommodation is camping.
Camping at a music festival today affords a few more comforts than it did in 1969. For instance, a large duffel bag can easily hold ‘fold-up’ tents, a backpack camping stove, and sleeping bags, lighting, dishes, silverware and one or two changes of clothes. Add one or two coolers for food and drinks and you are ready for the festival!
Energy saving led lights can also make your camping trip much more enjoyable. Led flashlights are extremely useful with the bright and wide light they emit, making the trip back to camp easily navigated. There are also lanterns made with led lights that require no kerosene or propane that will nicely light up your area.
Employ led light strips to light up your camping area – not only will your campsite be easily found, but it will look festive and inviting.
Hopefully you have been able to secure tickets for the upcoming String Cheese Incident shows at Electric Forest, Red Rocks, Flagstaff, Utah, California and Horning’s Hideout
Enjoy the friendship and camaraderie that abounds at all music festivals by the love of music.
