Volunteer Signup: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/8050B44AFAD2BA46-2013 Cosmic Campout is back for yet another incredible year! We've secured a fantastic new venue located only 30 mins from DC, which features a beautiful lake and a picturesque Virginia countryside. Our lineup boasts the best and most eclectic local and regional artists the area has to offer. And the best part, no more camping fees! Cosmic Campout is an exploration into the space of multi-genre music and arts. The festival promotes imagination and the convening of creativity by offering a landscape that allows these to flourish. By weaving together threads of local, artistic talent, accomplished musicians and professional staff, Cosmic Campout hopes to assist in shaping the ever-evolving art scene. The vision is to assemble divergent scenes into one collective consciousness that provides not only a rich community experience but two days of peace in a wild world. As the artists and locations grow and shape with the years, we hope to continue the exploration into love and respect through the guidance of music and art. Gathering with others is an ancient practice, a part of our flesh and bones. Cosmic Campout aims to keep that practice alive through the mystical power of the arts. All interested artists, vendors, performers, or volunteers contact: [email protected]

PORTAMAE is a group of fans and art lovers first, hoping to create a new festival formula, one that incorporates the disparate yet symbiotic aspects of our artistic palettes. Something to satisfy both the rowdy and the refined, the casual and the cacophonous. Let PORTAMAE be your speakeasy and your sanctuary. www.portamae.com https://www.facebook.com/events/491269011034841/
We know its only November but we really can't wait any longer to tell you how stoked we are for the 2015 festival season. Hope you're all as excited as we are! A little birdie told us, this entire area's planners and promoters are already hard at work so show them some love, family.

"Most of us are from M.H. and His Orchestra, but these two guys here are from the Walking Sticks. We call ourselves a symphonic dance spectacle. We are preforming at the 9:30 Club on August 30th at 8:00 pm, so we are promoting our show. This is the most tame we’ve been. We’ve been traveling up and down the East Coast a little bit, but we’ve all traveled before hand."
"Any crazy road stories?"
"Well…we can talk about Belgrade, but we never talk about Belgrade."
"Don’t talk about Belgrade."
"There is Belgrade, but we don’t want to talk about it."
"There was a run-in with a pagan witch in Blacksburg, Virginia."
"There was also the hotel of carnies. We stayed at a giant hotel that also had a lot of carnies staying at it."
"We always have to keep an eye on our horn section. They are always the ones disappearing and getting in trouble."
"Who is in the horn section?"
"Only one is here. The rest are missing."
