Not many festivals are considered intimate these days. Ultra Miami rocked a casual 330,000 attendees, EDC LV 2014 boasted over 140,000 people in the first night, and even Burning Man 2014 had over 77,000 people last year. It doesn’t look like festivals are going to get any smaller, but have been embracing their growth with open arms.
I am absolutely not saying there is anything wrong with a big crowd. I love crowds. According to Myers-Briggs I’m a textbook Extrovert. But I do find something intriguing about going to a more intimate festival, and I think I’ve found a new one to explore.
Woogie Weekend is a brand new festival organized by The Do Lab, kicking off this July in Silverado, CA. Based off of a crowd favorite stage at Lightning In A Bottle (Woogie Stage), this new festival will be limited to 4-5,000 attendees. It’s a chance to see some top DJs from around the world in one place at a more intimate venue.
The weekend campout will also host live painters, healthy food stalls, AM yoga sessions and over 30 merch vendors. The feel-good vibes from Lightning In A Bottle will be at Woogie Weekend for sure.
The full line up includes Danny Daze, Henry Saiz, Moon Boots, J. Phlip, Jonas Rathsman, Francesca Lombardo, RÜFÜS DU SOL, Adam Freeland, Pig&Dan, Nick Warren, and many more. Though there won’t be as many people, I’m sure it’ll be just as fun!
