No one said it was easy having fun.

My festie days were in my mid-20s at the Philly Folk Fest Thursday to Sunday camping with 40,000....

Some of the best days of my life. But I was always crisp at the end from too little sleep and too much uuh, recreation.

One of my favorite memories was after having listened to 96 hours of folk music I was driving home and I turned on the radio, and it was playing Pink Floyd "Money." All I could hear was banjos and mandolins.

While I would love to drop in on a festival, it's a bit too much work. On the other hand ma and pa sprung for an All Good Ticket for our Dead spawn....

That is too funny! I so know what you mean, even the crickets are chirping with a southern drawl!

I know what you mean. But you always find that corner somewhere where terrapin light still glows . Most kids feel they need drugs to have fun. Not much originality anymore. I cant stand asshole staff at shows that try and act so tough for no reason. If everyone is chillin and havin fun - they can crack a smile. I heard theres no shade at bonnaroo. I would never go to a concert in tennessee where there are no places to swim or cool off. Gotta have a few good swimming holes or rivers when having a festival -- "knew she had to come up soon for air"

I announced my retirement from BIG festivals last year at Allgood. Its just too hard on me now.

I will attend small festivals, Bearcreek is easy and Amberland..

other than that, its just a show here and there for me, when I can make it.

I get to see FOUR furthur shows in late july..
