Hey All

There will be an awesome music festival next weekend in Nellysford, Va. The dates are: Oct 5-7.

Here is a link to the lineup and schedule: schedule – The Festy

This is the home festival for the Infamous Stringdusters. Looks like they have handpicked a great lineup. The location is small, so all the camping is booked up. However I know where we can camp about 9 miles away for $10-$20 per night (Sherando Lake) and where we can get cheap festival tickets ($20/day).

Holler if you are interested. The Stringdusters, Trampled by Turtles, Leftover Salmon and the other great bands should not be missed.

Merlefest is April 25-28, 2013. The web site is www.merlefest.org. It is certainly one of the premier music festivals on the east cost. I went to it this year and had a great time. The lineup will not be announced until November 9. I camped at the North Wilkesboro Fire Dept campground this past year and it worked out fine. You are basically camped in a field with no hookups and the fee is $75-$100. They have bath facilities and operate a shuttle. I looked around at alternative camping locations and stumbled upon Bandits Roost public campground on a lake close by. It is on the edge of town and only about 5 miles from the Festival and the opposite direction from the traffic. Camping is only $22/day and includes water and electricity (half that with a senior pass). I went ahead and reserved a site for 4 days for 4/24-4/28.
There are 4 other sites available if you are interested A41, B94, B95 and B96 (as of 6:00 pm today). If you really want to go to Merlefest and would like to camp in a nice cheap campground on the lake, then you should make a reservation ASAP.

I also may have a source for reserved tickets. This is the best way to get the great seats for the festival.

Pm me if you have any questions.

One of the big reasons I wanted my first AS was to attend Music Festivals. As an avid live music archivist I had this fantasy to strip everything out of her and turn it into a mobile recording studio. Carpet all the walls red with little black spots to resemble the inside of a watermelon. It would be the perfect place for all the night time jamb sessions when the rain clouds came calling. But then I realized how much work was involved, another dream gets flushed. But I am glad to see there are alot of festavarians out there

I was wondering if anyone was planning on attending Wakarusa music festival this year in Northwest Arkansas ? Wakarusa.com this year it runs from May 29 until June 2. I have been the last two years and the weather can change by hour, (from 100 in the day, down to 50at night...I guess that is just Arkansas for you in the late spring. There is an amazing variety of bands from bluegrass to rap. Anyway, it is a really fun event and definitely worth going to. In 2011 there were a handful of other airstreams. But last year I think there were only 2. Anyway I was just wondering if anyone else in the community was planning on attending.

I went to Delfest last year, and it was one of the best festivals I have ever been to. Unfortunately, I can't go this year as our best friends' daughter is getting married that weekend.

Camping facilities were great by my standards- no hookups, but close to the action (but not too close). Cumberland is a nice place to spend some time in. I highly recommend this festival.

Jenni

Glad that you went to Palatka and enjoyed it. Maybe next year for me.

I will be headed to the Suwannee Music Park in Live Oak, FL March 21-24 for the Suwannee Springfest. The website is Suwannee Springfest. The lineup includes:

Old Crow Medicine Show, Jerry Douglas, Peter Rowan, Leftover Salmon, Keller and the Keels, Donna the Buffalo, Travlin McCourys, Darol Anger, Scythian, Mike Marshall and lots of others.

I hope that other Airstreamers will be there.

Dan

Musicians Against Childhood Cancer (M.A.C.C.) Blue Grass Fest

We did the ”Musicians Against Childhood Cancer (M.A.C.C.) Blue Grass Fest” last year in our SOB and really had a good time there.
Camping starts on Sunday, musicians play Wednesday through Saturday, and check out was the following Sunday.
This gave us Sunday through Tuesday to explore the surrounding area before the music started.
We toured the Motorcycle Hall of Fame in Pickerington, OH.
Traveled down to Logan, OH to Hocking Hills State Park where we hiked to Old man’s cave, Rock House, and Ash cave.
Here’s the link for you.

One of the premier music festivals on the east coast begins Thursday, April 25 thru Sunday, April 28. It is Merlefest, www.merlefest.org. I will be going and will be camped at Bandits Roost campground on the Lake. I went last year and the festival was incredible. I camped at the North Wilkesboro Volunteer Firemans Campground. It actually worked out fine, kind of pricey for no hookups, but it did include a shuttle service. I only used it once. Anyhow I will be in site 73. It is real cheap, $11/day, since I am over 62. I think it includes elect which I don't really need.

It is real close to Merlefest, less than 5 miles I believe. It is at a real Army Core of Engineers campground on a lake. Stop on by any morning if you can.

I just returned from Merlefest and had a great time. As usual, I only had heard of about 20% of the bands that played there and came away with some new favorites that I had never heard of before. They were the Black Lillies from Knoxville, Delta Rae from Durham, the Greencards from Austin, Tx and Enter the Haggis from Toronto, Ontario.

I camped at Bandits Roost Campground on Kerr Reservoir. It is an Army Corps of Engineers campground and is one of the best I have ever stayed at. I give it a 10/10 and only 5 miles from Merlefest.

I stumbled across an interesting custom Airstream. They sell and service Fender Guitars. This Airstream was custom made at the Factory. Here are some exterior photos.

It stays on the road a lot, but it resides in Texas, so it has two air conditioners.

It has an interesting set of steps. They work well and save on injuries as well as law suits. I suspect they store them in the Airstream when they are traveling.
