Here we go! On the way to Summer Camp. I’ve been looking forward to this day for many years now. The past three or four years, I have been streaming Summer Camp through iClips. The excitement still hasn’t settled in that I’m finally gonna get to experience my first music festival. It’s still very surreal. Honestly, I don’t really know what to expect. The only music festival that I have gone to is Milwaukee’s Summerfest (which is considered to be the world’s largest music festival, being over 11 days) but it is not a camping festival. In 2004, when I was 12, I saw Umphrey’s McGee for the first time at Summerfest (which got cut short due to weather) and I instantly fell in love with them!
I’m most excited to see Trey because I’ve seen Phish many times, because he might actually be a jedi, and also because I have never had the opportunity to see Trey as a solo act. I’m also very excited to see Big Gigantic and Medicine for the People! Medicine gives off such a unifying love vibe that is so easy to love. My adoration for both of these bands poses a major conflict and challenge because their set times overlap. Therefore, I plan on starting with Medicine for the People then heading over to Big Gigantic when they start. There are also quite a few other overlapping conflicts that I have yet to work out. So I guess the solution is just to go with the flow and see where the night takes me! Bring it on Summer Camp!
