The 10,000 Lakes Festival (10KLF) kicked off yesterday in Detroit Lakes, Minn. The Current describes it as such:
The 10,000 Lakes Festival showcases over 90 artists and bands on six stages, including the Barn Stage on a shady hill overlooking the concert bowl, the Field Stage where music-lovers spread out and soak up some sun, the Saloon Stage for intimate concerts and late night jams, and the Main Stage where everyone gathers in the evening for the headliners.
That translates to an instant mini-city complete with infrastructure concerns like trash and recycling...and nearly constant music starting at noon. How constant? The last act of each day fires up their amps at 1:30 a.m.
The Current's Lindsay Kimball and I are sending you more than postcards online - you can find photos of the musical guests and campers, informative twitter updates in real time, and blog entries with more details. It might be almost as good as being there.
