Electric Forest 2013: Phase II Lineup

There is something unique and spiritual about camping festivals that can't quite be explained. As much as I love maintaining a general sense of cleanliness and sleeping in a bed (as you do during festivals like Electric Zoo), there's sense of community and attendee bonding that happens when you're festing AND camping that I have yet to find replicated anywhere else. Camping is a[...] Read more >>
