2005 All Good Festival Pics
    #4422845 - 07/19/05 11:50 AM (12 years, 2 months ago)

All Good Festival was held this year on Marvin's Mountaintop just outside of Masontown, WV, between July 14th and July 18th. I don't have any close friends in this area, so I decided to roll down there alone. The drive time was around 5 1/2 hours but my wait in line was 7:



Due to my late arrival, I camped about 20 minutes from the center stage in a rocky area upmountain:



This mountain road held up well:



The view from my site was breathtaking:



Some people camped further up the mountain for an even better view:



You can see how the mountain dwarfs some of the tents near the edge:



In the distance through the fog you can see a river:



Water was prevalent throughout the weekend. In fact, when I arrived on Friday night, there was zero visibility due to pea soup fog. They had ran out of maps and programs so navigation was impossible. Two people stayed with my group (comprised of some wonderful people from nearby Virginia and me) for several hours because they couldn't find their cars or tents! There was celebration everywhere, so nobody was particularly worried.

Everybody who camped in our area had to endure this hill. Rumor has it it was easier to ascend backwards, but I never tried it:



Closer in the cars were dense:



Shake down. Need I say more?



Close up of the mud.



Center stage vendors. Bottled water was $1, and most food was between $4 and $5. As you can see, this festival is considerably more intimate than Bonnaroo:



It's always fun to camp right on the edge of the precipice:



The geography made camping interesting:



All wheel drive good. The mud got many times worse than this, especially on Sunday night:



Center stage through the trees:



The attendees were a broad mix of people who look, act, talk, and dress like hippies and others who like to keep things more on the down low:



Here's an overview of 40% or so of the camping area with the center stage just off to the left:



Impromptu jam session:



Hope you enjoyed these pictures. More to come in about 25 hours.

John

The line up is at http://www.allgoodfestival.com/, but my favorite band was by far Dark Star Orchestra. They play set lists of old Grateful Dead shows and kick ass.

--------------------
A plethora of music aspirations control my temptations of future revelations beyond "now". The percussion, and the heart beat of my love and devotion. The rhythm goes beyond, prying into the third eye, releasing the creativity held so far inside. The melodicies, through the out of tune pianos and broken classical guitars...there lies a beauty. A beauty as prevelent as the fire inside. To release these energies is pure ecstacy, to deveop these gifts is sacred. The vocality, so pure as can be, shying away from herself, lies within me. For the underlying serenitity, this is what I live for. I plea for harmony, and nothing more. Music equals love. Creation of love leads to the procreativity of the World, and it's spirals and puddles prevailing.

Yep, I missed you, but shit happens, heh.

I'm getting good at befriending total strangers. Something has come over me, and I'm not quite sure what it is yet.

Here are the rest of the pics!

This was the bus for everybody to paint and some more of the everpresent mud. As I learned the following weekend at 10,000 Lakes, some festivals are actually devoid of mud.



The security checkpoint. I was never hassled.



Extremely rain swelled pond. I saw one crazy person take a dip in it!



There was plenty of space for the audience. Music had just started at this point, but the grass was packed later that night for Dark Star.



This was the main stage, comparable to one of the side stages at Bonnaroo. Sound at this festival was excellent.



Enjoy!
