On June 10th, Joel P West and The Tree Ring, Zack Nielsen (Sezio) and yours truly caught a plane to Tennessee for 4 days of sweat, mud and music. The trip was sponsored by our pals at Ford and we were able to sneak along local filmmaker (and Sundance winner) Destin Cretton to play glockenspiel and document the voyage. And voyage it was. Many tall cans of Coors Light, Stevie Wonder, Daryl Hall & Chromeo, Kid Cudi, Jay Electronica, Edward Sharpe, The xx, Local Natives, Steve Martin, Conan O’Brien, 20,000 stoners watching USA vs England, Neon Indian, Miike Snow, LCD Soundsystem, Jimmy Cliff, Dan Deacon going mad, Lissie belting out jams at 1:30AM and Joel P West & The Tree Ring totally exceeding all expectations. It was a filthy hot mess but totally worth it. If you weren’t there, this is what you missed.
