2011 CAMP CREEK MUSIC & CAMPING FESTIVAL WAS A VISUAL FEAST!
Hippies near and far gathered for the 2011 Camp Creek music and camping festival in Oxford, Maine, on August 5th-7th. Over 30 bands performed throughout the weekend and Max Creek headlined Friday and Saturday night. Words do little service when describing this unique festival and all the shenanigans that played out on and off the stage. Aside from the jammin' great music, festival goers were treated to lots of impromptu traveling entertainment by larger than life satirical crowd puppets, jugglers, fire dancers (poi), painted naked people (yes, exactly that lol), hula hoop girls, drum circles, the random naked dude streaking across the lawn, and serenading walking musicians. This festival brought the festival experience back to where it should be: rootsy, creative, and campfabtabulous! Below are some pictures that captured the general vibe. I didn't get as many pictures as I would have liked, as I was having way too much fun!
