This summer has been one of the busiest summers of my life. Almost every weekend from the end of June through the beginning of August was spent at one music festival or another, either performing or documenting with fellow members of E.E. My journey began with What The Festival in Dufur, Oregon. I was blown away, but saturated with the bittersweet feeling that, while I’d experienced such an amazing music festival, nothing in the long line of event-filled weekends ahead of me would live up to it. And then I went to Summer Meltdown.
