Floyd Fest 13: How I learned you can put a good wig through anything and other assorted tales.

All wrist banded up!

Rolling hillsides, starry nights, live music, and free love rained down upon me at Floyd Fest 13 this past weekend. We (myself and the bf) embarked on this 4 day journey Thursday morning and did not return until Sunday. The first night was absolutely astounding with Lauryn Hill performing to a completely crowded outdoor stage. Also, earlier that day I checked out local RVA band Mighty Joshua and the Zion #5 who killed it on the Pink Floyd Biergarden Stage. From the food vendors, to the patrons of the festival everything was an experience I hope that I remember for a lifetime.  Ages ranged from toddler to elderly, all coming together to celebrate music and good energy in one place.

Now as far as wig maintenance I was certain that my wig was going to be fried by the time I left.  Not only did we get a pour down the first day, there was rain in some form or another on the following two days. Had I not been in such a joyous mood this would have upset me, but I just went back to the tenet on each of these night and quite literally, tossed my hair in the corner and vowed not to let it ruin my night of stargazing. I must admit that I did braid it up after the first day, because I had a suspicion that the Futura blend hair was going to turn into a disgusting mess.

 

I can say with the utmost confidence that I will be returning to that event again next year and hopefully with a netter account of the music. I was just so swept in to the vibe that my phone was the farthest thing from my mind. Perhaps that was the best part of the experience, I wasn’t preoccupied with trying to document my fun that I ended up having way more than  could have anticipated.

 

Even the glow sticks had their hands in the air!

Tried to dress for the occasion. Pretty sure I gave full throttle festival realness.
