I say the VIBES. Bridgeport is an armpit but once in Seaside Park it's beautiful. Very family friendly and last year they went a huge way to keep out a lot of the sketch factor we saw in years past. Great lineup this year too!

Hey Ho,

Grassroots Festival in Upstate NY (Trumansburg) is an excellent festival. There is all sorts of great music from all over the world- 4 stages, 4 days in July (after All Good) Same organizers also do a southern one in Shakorie Hills, NC. Happy Travels!

I'm gonna throw in a vote for Wanee. Beautiful setting, laid back vibe and incredible line-up.

I don't think I have ever been to a festival that has licensed security. i'm not even sure what that is. Most just have there own staff taking care of things.

I'll throw in a vote for Grassroots. Never been to Teluride, but I imagine they are somewhat the same, Minus the beautiful mountains.
I can't come down, it's plain to see.
I can't come down, I've been set free.

every reputable festival uses properlyl icensed security. bonnaroo, for example, contracts with alpha & omega mounted patrol of southlake, TX. (which makes sure that ALL their employees are properly credentialed by the jurisdiction they work in) ALL persons working security at bonnaroo hold proper credentials.not only that, when two A&O personnel were caught stealing from fans/vendors in 08 by the promoters production crew. they were (promptly) FIRED.

arkansas law REQUIRES any security company be properly licensed thru the arkansas state police's security/PI licensing division.



.wakarusa does NOT use a properly licensed security company.

wakarusa also uses an insurance company of questionable repute-the 'philadelphia insurance company'.

Trust me, If anyone should know *I* would.

i vote vibes as well. my first was bobbys first in 2000.i even started doing the vip package.its worth paying for convenience at my age.yeah,bridgeport isnt the kindest of places.but,i have never had a problem.the vibes really creates its own city for 4 days. to me ,it wouldnt matter where it was held.the music and freaks overshadow any harsh reality in my temporary summer Eden. then,sunday night you exit the gates back to reality.
