With the winter coldness finally fading and beautiful days approaching on the horizon lovers of live music and/or a good 3-4 day rager rejoice because that amazing time of year has begun, MUSIC FESTIVAL SEASON!!! Though there are many "festys" all year long the spring to mid-fall is when things really get moving and literally every weekend in different parts of the country there are people coming together to celebrate community, music and the freedom of life. If you have never been to a music festival than it is an experience you certainly must be a part of to truly understand, and few festivals truly embody the absolute freedom and musical sustinance as Wakarusa.

Wakarusa is amazing because it brings all the best parts of the beauty of nature and a truly accepting community and combines that with epic debauchery and a down-for-whateverness that is hard to find anywhere in todays society. It is a place where ones freak flag can fly high and never be questioned. As well as Waka's beautiful atmosphere there is something to be said of the diversity of quality music. Every year it features amazing artists from genres as diverse as hip-hop, jazz, bluegrass/jamgrass, dubstep and everything in between. For more info on the artist lineup and the festival experience in general makse sure to check out www.wakarusa.com. Below are some live videos of my personal favs from this years lineup. So if you are looking for a fulfiiling experience that combines culture with one of the most incredible party atmospheres you've ever experienced check out Wakarusa 2012!!
