Mountain Jam line up is sick! but I hear camping is kinda crap.

Electric forest looks cool as shit, 3x of sci and rumors of furthur.....

 

I'm confused, can really only do one. Mt Jam is a little closer but I really love cheese. Tho 2x of wsp, phil, and govt mule plus others is a real kicker for me, love all 3......

 

So if anyone got some impute of either or, I'd be grateful for any info. 

 

 

 

 

 

Oh yeah pumped for wanee....... 2x of abb and wsp.

Well what kind of music do you really like?   Electric Forest is going to be mostly dj's and livetronica besides Cheese.  Personally I'd pick Electric Forest.  I went to the first Rothbury there and it was awesome

Not thrilled with the Hunter Mountain venue.  Have yet to attend Electric Forest, however it does look quite appealing.

Never felt welcome at mountain jam. You have to treat your fans as valued patrons, not as cattle. I guess that's why I stay away from larger, more coroporate events.

they are running ful 2 minutes ads for Mtn Jam on NJ101.5, which has a weekly "Ask The Governor" sit down show whith Chris Christie every week, and plays oldies all weekend.  Its so bizarre to hear them promote it on prime commercial radio.  Of course they see the fans as $$$.

 

DOes Vibes also do this?

Yeah the Mountain Jam lineup at the Electric Forest venue would be awesome.  That would totally be on the radar for a festival roadtrip!

Have bus (VW) will travel...

but never to Mountain JAm as I'd have to camp down the road, which crimps one's style to say the least.  And sitting on a ski slope to listen to music only works in small venues for me like at

Those woods are incredible, and SCI tore that place up a few years back, the Dead played too.. Need to see the lineup but strongly suggest them woods for anyone

Thanks for the input guys! 

I've been leaning toward EF but mt jam being earlier in the month and their line up, made me double think. 

Camping on a hill VS MI. At least it's flat, but a longer drive from WV.

SCI(no other line but mostly eltro) vs living legends. 

 

Might just have to hold off till I see EF line-up. But them are some purdy looking woods. 

 

I really like it all for the most part, depends on my mood. I don't mind hanging with the old heads way more respectful then the rave kiddies. 

 

hard not to go with sci family....... maybe I'll hit the loto and go to them all!

Car camping areas are pretty darn flat.

nice, that's what I was looking at. From the over top view it looked flat. Car camping does make a difference dragging all that shit around.
