Hell yeah! mankvill knows what's up, you get one of the best festivals in the country at about half of what the other major festies charge. If you are at all into jam bands and/or electronica, consider heading out to Arkansas for an amazing party.

The nighttime electronic acts are what are of most interest to me personally. Returning from last years' event will be the 'Interstellar Meltdown' which basically consists of a couple tents that rock electro bands and DJs until 6am. http://www.interstellarmeltdown.com/

STS9, Zappa Plays Zappa, Bassnectar, EOTO, Lotus, Big Gigantic and Bluetech have gotten my panties wet enough to justify making the 15 hour drive from Detroit again.

Basically, if you're looking party on top of a mountain and any of the music appeals to you, roll on up to Mulberry Mountain. It's a fun time.

When I went, I had only heard of The Flaming Lips, but it was one of the best festival experiences I've ever had!

;) I'd rather be at Wakarusa with a bunch of annoying dancing hippies than at Country Stampede with a bunch of drunk bros.

Because of the first part, the second apart applies to you :finger:

However, for me: No Mule, no DTB, no DBT, no Crowes... or even solo member sets? No Rose Hill Drive... :(
