VIBE is hooking you up with a pair of tickets, a free mix and seven other reasons why you should experience What The Festival at Wolf Run Ranch in Oregon, July 26-28. -->
1. Because it's summer
And where do you belong in the summer? At a pool party, curated by Decibel Festival no less.What will it sound like? Check out a mix from Tyler Tastemaker to find out (below).
2. Because you're tired of seeing the same old headliners and want to have a more cutting edge music in your earholes.
Check the lineup here. Not to mention the fact that the fest features Funktion-One's iconic and legendary sound systems on every stage at WTF! Your ears will be very happy.
3. Because you dig big art.
Sculpture by the dozen and art by the ton, WTF has invited large and small installation artists from all over the West Coast to gather together and show their stuff. Forget about stodgy museums and “please don’t touch the art” signs… this is your opportunity to get up close and personal with some of the biggest names from Burning Man and beyond. WTF’s Big Art Experience welcomes all colorful comers and invites participants to create some art of their own.
4. Because you need a movie night (Ok Micro Film Fest) under the stars.
Each night until dawn, WTF attendees will be able to journey into the forest and lay under the stars to experience our new Micro Film Festival. Featuring short, independent films from all over the world, you are guaranteed to see something you’ve never seen before. This will be a perfect place for those quiet moments when you need to take a breather from all the festival fun.
5. Because you need to LOL somewhere other than your iphone
What the Festival’s LOL Stage will host all manner of vaudeville acts, flimflam artists, and one man bands each night, starting at midnight and going til dawn. This tiny stage packs a punch, with a score or more of local and national troupes from around the West Coast to around the block. So take a seat in the grass, find a swing in the trees, and prepare to be razzled and dazzled all night long.
6. Because you couldn't get your ass to Burning Man to experience Opulent Temple, now's your chance.
The Opulent Temple is a proud new addition to What The Festival. Emerging from Burning Man and based in San Francisco, Opulent Temple offers a peak experience of sacred dance to world-class electronic music. The bar of this iconic sound stage production is being raised to an astounding next level, featuring 3D visual projection on a geometric DJ performance booth. This is a rare opportunity to experience the Opulent Temple sound, described as raw, unexpected, full-bodied and visceral. Learn more at OpulentTemple.org.
7. Because you love to camp?
Or maybe you're a baller and you love to camp luxuriously? WTF has you covered.
8. Music and Friends
Because you need to experience dancing under the stars with your best friends and the best music ever. YOLO
