As the weekend kicked off, people started to fill in and set up camp at the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park. A lovely fall breeze brisked the air, as tents popped up and behold... a giant DOME!
24 feet in diameter by 14 feet tall, the geodesic steel dome brought considerable value to the park this past weekend through its scheduled workshops and classes.
Behind its construction was a group of dedicated individuals known as the C4 Collective. Through CO-CREATION, COMMUNITY, & COMMITMENT the group seeks to bring explosive CHANGE to festivals & cities alike.
To incite community and begin the festival on Friday, the collective held an opening ceremony, intention setting, & yoga class.
The energy set forth by the Applebutter Express' set later that evening was reminiscent of world-class bluegrass performances.
Saturday morning began at the dome with an exciting yoga class and wonderful massage workshop, followed by a handful of engaging discussions on topics ranging from food to philosophy to conservation.
Green Sunshine took the amphitheater by storm with their powerful stage presence in the afternoon; while the Catfish Alliance followed with a much more reserved but pleasant set in absence of their front-man, the 'Sex Manatee'.
Savi Fernandez took hold of the stage later that night with a handful of shredding guitar solos that were rivaled by only Roosevelt Collier himself.
With a stage full of amazing musicians, Roosevelt closed off the festival with some incredible covers. A favorite of many, Roosevelt's rendition of Jimi Hendrix's 'Foxy Lady' shook the crowd with quite possibly one of the most incredible steel guitar solos the stage has ever seen.
