No blogging way I’m going to miss Wakarusa 2013
Pulling into Mulberry Mountain for the first time is indescribable. The site where Wakarusa calls home is nestled deep in the Ozarks, far from the rustle and bustle of city life. As you pull into the venue, all of the worries of everyday life slowly lift and the beautifully positive Wakarusa vibes take over. Excitement, energy and smiles are everywhere and then it hits you like a locomotive, this is just the beginning… the music hasn’t even started. It’s only going to get better from here. Over the course of the next four days, you bob and weave through a magical array of people, art, music and creativity. Is there anywhere you’ve been where 10,000 strangers are instantly your friend? That is Wakarusa. The organizers create a lineup that takes you on a new, exciting ride everyday. Almost like a roller coaster, the music builds and builds throughout the day and then by night time you are soaring through some of the best acts in the business. With music from multiple genres, it is impossible to not find something you fall in love with. Even the most experienced music fan will stumble upon something at Wakarusa they’ve never seen before, but will fall instantly in love with. It goes without saying that the worse thing about Wakarusa is that at some point it will be over. As you pull away from Mulberry Mtn when it’s all said and done, you are a changed person. You leave with a renewed appreciation for music, art, and most importantly, for people.
