Transformational festivals are a place where individuals can go to truly find themselves, discover their purpose on this planet, and connect with other like-minded individuals in a way that is hard to do in every day life. With festivals like Coachella, Burning Man, and even Lightning in a Bottle reaching near over capacity, it seems like those very experiences one looks for at a festival are quickly becoming hard to find with the masses of people trying to join in on the fun. So where do us humans go to seek out these transformational, life changing experiences without worrying about getting trampled or paying $20 for french fries? We believe that What The Festival is the perfect place to get your fix, and then some.
With eight different stages featuring electronic and live music acts, a vast and boutique experience of art, and myriad of other activities to keep your free, creative, and wild side glowing; we highly suggest you make the journey to Wolf Run Ranch in Dufur, Oregon with us June 17th-20th.
To begin with, the musical lineup for this year has us gleaming with excitement. Headliners include Thievery Corporation, Bonobo, Lettuce, and a very special late night set by the king of Dirtybird himself, Claude Vonstroke. Although seeing these headliners all together in one festival is a complete rarity and treat in itself, there is an astonishingly large amount of additional acts. Other artist’s like Lido, Random Rab, J.Phlip, Phutureprimitive, and G Jones will be joined by over 100 other musicians. Whatever your musical taste may be you are bound to find what you’re looking for. But with such a massive and unique combination of different genres, it is wise to go into this festival with a completely open mind to let the beats enter your eardrums with ease.
Music, however, is hardly the focal point for What The Festival. The crew over at WTF preaches the wide variety of activities they offer, and boy do we love them! What is a summer party without a pool? Well, What the Festival has quite literally brought the pool to the party with one of the stages being in an actual pool. That’s right, multiple DJ’s will have the chance to stand behind literal pool decks – pumping beats into the wet crowd dancing in the water in front of them. Along with the fact that attendees will be apart of a pool party in the middle of the Oregon woods, festivalgoers will also have a chance to join in on other fun. The Casbah Hookah Lounge, Enchanted Forest, art structures, multiple workshops, silent disco, and the oasis spa are just a handful of activities you will be able to indulge in with your crew!
If all of this isn’t convincing enough, just think about all the smiling faces and wondrous souls you would encounter on this magical trip in the heart of Oregon. We hope to see you there!
