We hung around the Fringe stage for the most part, watching the other tournament bands in the mornings, and the heavier bands throughout the evenings.
By far, I was most excited to see Disciple, and they definitely did not disappoint.
It really only rained a bit. And at some point afterward, we caught a pretty rainbow descending from the clouds.
There was a decent amount of time where we all just hung around. At night, we would sit around a campfire and make mountain pies. Well . . . everyone else did. I sat there and fell asleep because I’m really, really, really not a night person. But I tried.
As an introvert, sometimes I just need a little time away from people. So one evening I stole my boy, and we hiked up to the top of a mountain to a really cool overlook. We got to see a lot of the festival from up there. And let me tell you, the place is huge.
It was super hot for most of the week. One clever thing that I read was to take a bandana, get it wet, and tie it around your neck to keep you cool. Unfortunately, I didn’t remember to try this until the end of the festival.
Creation Fest was my first-ever music festival, and I loved it! I learned to definitely put way too much sunscreen on (I got burned pretty bad on my back) and to not forget my camera bag (with my wallet and lots of other things in it) next time.
Overall, I had a fantastic time, and I’d definitely go again.
