Raindance Art & Music Festival... (a story of the fine print)


One of my good friends sent me a link to a local music fest he's playing at this coming weekend in Land o Lakes, Fl - just a short drive from Tampa Bay. Officially, it's called the Open Grass Art & Music Festival 'Raindance.' Rain is what the Tampa area needed a week ago - it's been raining balls all week, but a good music fest with some durty hippies is always welcome. Some truly talented musicians and local artists are on the bill: The Malah, DJ Craig Heneveld, Cypress, Aquaphonics, Cope, Laura Reed, Christie Lenee, Organic Hate Mail (that's an awesome name), David DuBlois and others.

The fest website gives you typial run down of details, "2 days and 2 nights filled with Peace, Love, Music and Art Primitive Camping and the best Jam Bands from the 4 corners of Florida... Only $30 for the 2 days of the show including camping... Drum Circles (BYO Drum), Art on Site (Bring materials) Funk, Jazz, Reggae, Jam bands, Electronica & Acoustic Stage..."

Then off to the side I noticed some additional - and rather key - info:
This is a Peaceful and harmonious weekend that will be held in an artists & nudist community. You will be expose(d) to this lifestyle once you enter this property. Minors must be accompanied by parents.
Raindance is being held at the Riverboat Nudist RV Resort & Campground - I'm not mocking it - I'd love to go, but the wife isn't down. To take some drugs and dance is one thing - all of that in your birthday suit is a whole nother ball game.
