Are you one of the unlucky few who did not get tickets to the sold out Kaskade Freaks of Nature Tour at Staples Center this Friday? Or are you like me and are trying to get as far as humanely possible from the 20,000 screaming fans who are about to invade downtown LA? Either way I have great news, What the Festival?! is taking place this weekend (July 27-29) in Oregon and it is going to be way better than anything going on in Los Angeles this weekend.
What the Festival?! takes place in the gorgeous White River Canyon of Oregon, only one hundred miles south of Portland. For those of us in LA that means a brisk 16-hour drive up the coast, but trust me it is worth it for this line up. Some of the sickest producers in electronic music today will be headlining, like; Beats Antique, Ghostland Observatory, Big Gigantic, Mimosa, Bonobo, Claude Von Stroke, Dillon Francis, Emancipator, Paper Diamond, and many more. You get all this amazing talent, a full on summer festival experience, and on site camping for just $180?!? If you go to Kaskade instead you will easily spend more than that in a single evening, do the math people!!
This may be What the Festival's!? first year but it is put on by a crew of festival veterans and promises to be one hell of an event. Besides the awesome music and beautiful art, WTF offers a variety of relaxing options for festival goers. They have a hookah lounge, an outdoor pool that is open to everyone, more delicious food options than your average festival, art galleries, and believe it or not a full on spa. I don't know about everyone else but I plan on going crazy at HARD Summer which is only a week from Friday. So take my lead and come out to WTF fest where you can get out of LA for the weekend, rage or relax, and have the time of your life. Hope to see you there!!"
