Post Bear Creek 2012
Hey you all,
Can someone do a full on comparison between Wanee and Bear Creek? This was my first year at wanee this past weekend and i cant begin to tell you how much of an amazing time we had, and just cant wait to get back to sosmp. So how does Bear Creek compare to wanee.

Thanks to everyone for such a fantastic weekend at wanee.

From my perspective, they are two different animals. I certainly enjoy them both. You know about Wanee.

For Bear Creek, they use five different stages -- two in the music hall, Mushroom, barn stage and another near the Peach stage. They ALSO had a silent disco tent last year that was awesome. This means there are lots of overlaps, and you have to make decisions and either move around a lot or pick your favorites.

For me, as much as I love the headliners, it is the bands I know little or nothing about who always delight. So much great talent!

The emphasis is on funk and jamtronica. There is a lot else going on, but looking at the line-up, you can see where the focus is.

Much smaller crowds. Moving around is a breeze at Bear Creek.

COLD!

I really enjoy the vibe at Bear Creek as well as Wanee. Again, they are different, but the park is still its magnificent self.

The Bear Creek promoters (Big IV Productions) really 'get' what it means to be a customer at a music fest. And, they act on that fact.

They get the little things right (like enough porta-potties, adequate service of same) and they get the big things right too (like, the lineups).

You pretty much gotta love the Funk to enjoy Bear Creek to its fullest, but hey: You oughta be doin' that anyway. :)

One other aspect to Bear Creek is the relative ease of getting to meet and talk to the performers. It is next to impossible at Wanee to get access to the musicians, because of the way the stages are set up, the size of the crowd, and...

Well, at Bear Creek, many of the musicians seem to go out of their way to interact with the festival goers. As an autograph hound, that is one aspect of Bear Creek I always enjoy.

Great sentiment, Keeb! That's why I am FINALLY getting off my a$$ and getting to MagFest.
