[RECAP] Locked, Loaded, and Lock’n Bound – Interlocken Music Festival 2013 – Arrington, VA

Welcome to Lock’n! Locked, loaded, and Lock’n bound, we headed for the first annual Interlocken Music Festival (now called Lock’n). Logistically speaking, getting in to the festival on day one, Thursday, was a nightmare, as a majority of the volunteer staff allegedly threw their hands in the air and left their posts.

The second band to perform was SISU, an L.A. five...

2013 Best Stir Fry Music Fest Ever

Photos by Steven Philips, Story by Laura Fox This year’s Stir Fry Music Fest V was my first, and honestly I had a blast. I got there Friday, set up camp, then was out wandering to getting my bearings. This is one of the smaller festivals, smaller than the Philadelphia Folk Festival, which I had been to the previous weekend, but still able to handle a solid thousand people, and they sold out quickly. This year’s Stir fry took place in...

Brandywine Folk Festival – Ambitious, Young and Fun

This past weekend I wrapped up my summer music festival attending for the year at the Brandywine Folk Festival in Kennett Square, PA. In its second year, the BFF is not yet a well-oiled machine, but it does have a lot of potential and lots of room to grow. Held at the lovely Anson B. Nixon Park, the setting is ideal for spreading a blanket under the shade of tall trees and listening to some great live music. I saw tons of local &...
