I've been to this festival once, many years ago, and it was the most organized festival that I have ever been to. Musically it was good, not great, but this year's lineup looks fantastic!

I remember at one point a rainbow formed right behind the stage ... better than any video or light show I've ever seen.

Have a great time Esau ... I'm sure you will.

Peace, Mark

The two artists I'm looking most forward to seeing,obviously are The Gourds & Daniel Lanois.Man,this year seeing both on the same ticket is crazy,throw Ricky Skaggs in the mix and its a dream show for me.

Guess I better be buying some mics for recording...
