Mighty High Music Festival- Multiple sets from Railroad Earth, DSO, and Cornmeal highlight this fest

Strangecreek- I will be making an effort to see much more music this year. This is the fest where I'm hoping there's no rain or high heat

Clearwater Revival- Joan Osborne, Ani Difranco and Arlo Guthrie highlight the Westchester County festival

Gathering of The Vibes- The Superbowl of East Coast festivals

moe.down- Looking forward to my first trip to Turin

(A Bears Picnic- awesome little fest, depends on finances)

Catskill Chill- Another first timer for me

(Wormtown if I'm not in Ocean City with my family)

This year will be a little different for me.......hitting up a couple new small fests that cater to the dance-electric-dj crowd...
Been to this year:
Some Kind of Jam (first time back since 2009, great time I liked the new venue and layout)
Uphoria Festival (awesome new smaller fest catering to dance-electronica bands/djs)
Mighty High Festival (only camped on Friday night to hang, didn't hear any live bands)
Plan on:
Baconfest
The Come Up Festival (missing stonehenge).... http://www.facebook....icfestival/info
Freedom of Expression 2 Festival ......http://www.facebook.com/events/354918161234327/
Exodus Music and Arts Festival ..... http://exodus.3owl.com/
51 Basscamp Festival
The return of the NY Harvest Fest!

I was about to add Bonaro after seeing an ad in the Providence Phoenix but I just noticed the Manchester is not Manchester NH. I don't know how you folks manage the logistics of camping festivals that require airfare.

usually I would deal with a festival like that by driving 16+ hours or whatever... a good way is to leave a few days before and plan a cheap hotel stop along the way

We do it all the time. Get a large gear bag on wheels for tent, air matress, tarp, small chair and we have a handheld scale to ensure it is not over 50lbs. Then we pack other stuff in a cooler on wheels and check it as luggage :thup:

This. Catskill was one of my favorite 2011 fests. Had a huge 16 bed cabin for 3 people..at least this year we have 10 or so people for our cabin. Best part is all the stages are covered so bad weather poses no problems for the music. Such a beautiful venue. Finally was able to sell my All Good tickets so I'll be doing the Vibes/Chill combo again.

Agreed. I would never go back there. Between the heat and walking.... However, we have a Kelty car canopy that only weighs 4 lbs that we also pack in a gear bag when we fly and need to bring a canopy.
