The Scoop: Bring your curiosity. This jam-band and electronic-heavy festival also boasts the jaw-dropping Sherwood Forest, a wooded outdoor area that is expanding in size for the first time to offer attendees more space to explore.There are even ways to get involved in the community-driven festival before it starts, including art installation sponsorships and hula-hoop contests.
Insider Tip: Get your rest before you head to Rothbury. Given the festival’s remote location, we hear music can go until the wee hours of the morning.
Escape From Your Escape: Grab a spot on a hammock to rest or walk to Big Wildcat Lake to play a pick-up sand volleyball game.
