Blissfest 07: A Retrospective

August 8, 2007 at 8:28 pm 1 comment

So last month I decided to discover firsthand exactly what Bliss Fest is. In a time of big production, over the top music festivals, there are still some striving to create an intimate enjoyable large scale concert setting that is more about the music than media exposure. Bliss Fest is a perfect example of this mentality.

Not knowing what to expect, I ventured on a road trip with some friends deep into rural western Michigan to investigate the mysterious Bliss Fest. We were met with a giant field complete with three stages boasting eclectic acts ranging from folk to roots to blues to dance and back again. A great atmosphere carried over to the night where forest drum circles and hidden clusters of busking were abundant. All in all the most chill and easily navigable festival I have ever been to.
