Proof Eyewear Attends What The Festival 2013!?
Posted on by 3
As our approach on the quaint drive up to the foothills of the Pacific Northwest with Mt. Hood looming in the background, we had arrive to our destination and could feel the excitement in the air. The roads lined with stumps donning reflectors for the winding road back to the meadow where the festival is held. After one of the fastest check-ins we have ever experienced we were directed to our awesome setup. We had the luxury of landing a VIP camping spot from some friends who had been to the festival the year before. They insisted we take there spot, for they could not attend this year. Needless to say being front row within throwing distance of the pool was epic. We were around a great group of Burning Man attendees and the vibes in the camp were very welcoming and friendly. This was definitely a plus as we had a focused point for everyone to meet up. Proving the VIP camping to be well worth it and an excellent way to enjoy the festival. As many festival goers will know it is quite easy to lose your crew of friends, the beauty of WTF is that within five feet a new friend awaits! Along with music there were numerous activities that ran throughout the day. We experienced some of the funnest yoga we have ever done, had an amusing time participating in some parkour training, and had tea at the wee hours of the night in an Alice and Wonderland-esque setting. We were able to also catch up with a couple of our favorite acts and get them donning some shades as the sun was on full torque all weekend. As the pool was roaring and rolling by the afternoon everyday it was the best possible scenario to beat the heat. This is also where Classixx took down the house (no pun intended). Here is a little recap of the wet and wild madness that occurred! Classixx donning the Hayburns while everyone was losing their minds and feeling the beat! Purity Ring put on one of the best performances of the weekend. We were able to meet up for quick chat before the show that night we rode the railing and danced away in the dust storm which occurred every night of the concert! By this point of the weekend everyone had put in a solid 10-12 hours of dancing, but the energy was at an all time high. The stage presence that they have enables you to enter the world of music which Purity Ring creates so well, it is airy, moving, and inspiring! All over the grounds of the festival was amazing imagery and as you fell deeper into the night the colors were enough to entertain. Claude Von Stroke refusing to stop at his scheduled time it was by far the dustiest of all the shows! Overall this was one of the most entertaining experiences of our summer. We will be pulling as many friends to join us next year into the escape from the real world which is What The Festival. The friendliest people, nonstop music, and the opportunity to try a number of different activities you might not find in your normal life. It's a full on experience and a wise man once said, "Spend your money on experiences, not possessions." This is one for the ages and with the drive from their awesome staff it's a festival that will be around for years to come. whatthefestival.com iwantproof.com
