Dwellingville will kick off Saturday at 11:10 a.m., followed by The Dune Flowers, Modern Nomad, talk to Plants, Foggy May, Makeup Girl, Jeff Draco, Lunar Vacation, Peir Pressure and Ben Chase.
“Most of the music is more of the indie, rock and roll kind of thing, a lot of like beachy, happy music,” Drager said.
The festival originated as a backyard gathering of four bands when the organizers Drager, Ben Chase and Blake Ruby were high-schoolers all together in the band Red Couch. Though they have gone their separate ways to separate bands, and has grown over the years.
The location of the festival is in two different places, private properties in Woodbine and Westminster. Drager said the exact locations would be available through the group’s Facebook page just before the event for privacy reasons. Guest are encouraged to carpool.
This year, there are more activities for those who don’t want to spend the whole day listening to music including yoga in the morning and mediation sessions.
Guests are welcome to bring water and snacks as well as lawn chairs and picnic blankets and similar items. They are asked not to bring pets.
Food will be available for purchase.
Guests going both days are invited to bring tents to camp over night. Group migration to the second location happens Saturday morning.
Red Couch writes in their FAQ about the festival, “This isn’t about throwing the next Firefly. This is about connecting with friends and making new ones, hearing your favorite bands and us showing you ours, and celebrating the ethereal joy of our communal existence.”
