Re: how many people have attended Wanee each year?
My wife and I have. They've all been great.
Was prepared for some disapointment last year without the Allmans but I looked at the schedule and said to myself, "If this was some other random festival, what would you think of the lineup?" and knew I was being silly. Wanted to see Levon Helm the most, and was not disapointed.
'07 makes me think of the afternoon sets - especially Robert Randolf. And the storm
2006 I really was super excited for the late night DtB (they didnt have that the first year) and it was awesome. Couple of my favorites with RRE and New Monsoon that year too, back when Rajiv was still on tablas/etc in the band.
'05 was great....they had 2 sets of mule and 2 sets of DtB ... both right before the Allmans....Warren on the big stage and Derek on the Mushroom stage. You got to see who drew more head to head (Mule by far by the way at that time
). So I got two DtB sets...and they were hot. The second plus was that they then walked right over and got on stage with the Allmans and they were all warmed up! I do remember it got really cold after the sun went down that year though.
