Backwoods Music Festival on historic Route 66 in Stroud, Oklahoma is back again this year and without a doubt, better than ever. As many of you know I moved down to northwest Texas (the boring part of Texas) last summer and was a bit worried about what my music festival options were going to be. Lucky for me and the Midwest in general Backwoods has stepped their game up an insane amount for 2016. Here are just some of the reasons why Backwoods is the festival to hit in September, regardless of where you find yourself in the US.
Outstanding Line Up
Backwoods has released a jaw dropping line up. It is a music lovers dream, as it is where the best in EDM meets the absolute best Jam and Folk. Headlining the event is the a live performance by the legendary group Nero, the ultra hot jam band Nahko and Medicine for the People, Saxstep pioneers Big Gigantic and a staple at any quality music festival, moe. The headliners mean serious business on this one, demonstrated by the blend of both dance music and jam bands, but on top of the big names lie a litany of some of the best acts in the world right now. Progressive house and trance superstar Audien is making his debut as well as Elephante. Elephante is a sound design maestro. He has pushed electro house in the direction that it continues to follow today. On top of these two bass hybrid artists like Chill Harris and Haywyre also round out the subscript in a beautiful manner. Backwoods also continues to provide a platform for local talent which is one of the most important things a festival can do. Festivals that we love are a place where we can enjoy superstar acts as well as discover new up and coming talent. Backwoods provides both.
Music Festivals these days have become an entire sensory experience. Fans want to go to a festival that not only offers an incredible line up and amenities but art displays, food vendors, and merchandise vendors as well. This is where Backwoods shines. As I covered above the music that is offered at Backwoods is dynamic and elegant. It is an impressive and eclectic blend of artists. Moving further though Backwoods has an entire new stage concepts that will blow you away. I have seen their mainstage design, and while I cannot reveal any details, it is truly jaw dropping. It is of course fully equipped with lasers, as well as special effects. Their famed treehouse stage has gained several improvements for this year as well. The art displays at Backwoods is something that will truly be appreciated for fans who need a break from the thumping bass. It offers a beautiful escape and hours of wandering and looking on in awe as different artists showcase their works. Of course no festival is complete without food and merchandise and Backwoods has promise to bring in several vendors offering the usual festival driven attire and products. Backwoods is not just a music festival but a full scale escape to wonderland for Labor Day weekend. It is the Midwest's premiere camping music festival without a doubt.
There are so many gigantic mega festival these days, and with their size comes quite an insane ticket price. Backwoods breaks this trend by offering several tiers of ticket prices that very affordable. Without camping they offer a full festival pass for only $149 before fees AND WITH camping only $199. Early Bird VIP Camping passes, which include showers and flush toilets, only go for $100 more at $299. RV passes start at $299 as well and come with full hook ups. With tickets at these prices and a line up of this quality they will go fast and sell out. So follow this link to secure yours today.
