I never want to leave the Island once I get there. This festival is so amazing because you are trapped on an island with all the musicians and it is really the best way to make friends and connections. This festival has brought me close to many artists such as Dave Boutette and brotha James but especially to Melophobix. This band is so amazing and not to mention some of the nicest dudes I have ever met. It was crazy to find out that their drummer is the one of my favorite 8th-grade teacher, small world!!! I can't wait until I'm "Of age" to attend this festival because these people really know how to party. Seriously I don't think the island even wakes up until nearly 4 pm because of staying up so late.
Also, have you ever heard of boodling?! (I am not sure if I used the correct spelling for that) If you haven't... well I'm not gonna tell you what it is, you have to find out for yourself.
This is a festival that everyone needs to experience at least once and I say this because it is so unlike any festival out there. I mean you literally have to take a giant ferry across Lake Michigan with all of your camping gear to get there. (which can be quite a struggle)
And I know I have told them thank you a million times but they deserve a million more so, thank you to the burtons. They let hundred of crazy hippies live on their property for a week (some for even a week) and they are some of the most hospitable people in the world. You guys rock.
