I haven’t been this excited to cover a festival in a long time.
Everywhere I go, I kept hearing rumblings of “the most amazing fest ever! You have to go!”. Aptly headlined, What The Festival has been on my list of go-to’s since moving to the West Coast. Next week my child is coming out to play.
Held on the beautiful grounds of Wolf Run Ranch – right under the looming tower of Mount Hood – What The Festival is a carefully curated weekend of interactive art, 8 stages of electronic and live music, speaker series, movement classes, and plenty more.
Part of the excitement of the festival comes from the infamous Pool Stage – a massive kiddie pool play area for adults. Part of it comes from having the chance to run around a forest for 4 days. And a lot of it comes from the chance to see so many ass shakers in one place and time!
Artists I’ve been waiting to see are coming together under one sky – names such as Bakermat, Brasstracks, ZHU, The Funk Hunters, Big Wild, Gramatik, and more!
Just typing out the names gets me excited.
So we put together a playlist of the top 15 performances we can’t wait to dance and groove to. All the above names are in it, plus many more!
Stream the only playlist you’ll need to get pumped for What The Festival this year below!
More information and tickets can still be found on What The Fest’s website.
