How to Enjoy Your Time in a Bluegrass Campground

Here are a couple of tips to ensure that you derive maximum pleasure when you attend a festival and stay at a bluegrass campground for the very first time.

Pack appropriately.

Find out expected weather conditions to know what kind of outfits you should pack. At the very least, pack clothes that will allow you to move comfortably and travel for long hours. It’s impossible to stay in one place when you’re attending a bluegrass festival. There are just so many things happening in every corner and you don’t want to miss a thing.

Prepare your mobile phone and camera.

Many great friendships are born in a bluegrass campground. You’ll meet lots of new persons there and these people may be the same faces you’ll see the next year. Make sure you can stay in touch with them by taking lots of photos and exchanging contact details. The more, the merrier as they say and soon, you’ll be part of one huge clan every time you attend your favorite bluegrass music festival.

Get a crash course on bluegrass music.

You’re interested in attending a bluegrass music festival even though you haven’t the slightest idea of what bluegrass music is. Well, that simply won’t do. One of the best experiences you’ll get to enjoy in festivals is when you meet new friends and swap stories about your favorite bluegrass artist, the joys and pains of learning to play the mandolin or banjo, and the bands that you’re looking forward to seeing in action. How can you break out and sing along with other festival goers when you don’t know the difference between Bill Monroe and Seldom Scene?

Learn how to play any bluegrass musical instrument.

Having an excellent voice is great, but if you want to make the most out of bluegrass festivals then you need to choose an instrument. That way, you get to join workshops that are commonly offered as part of the festival’s program as well as participate in band scrambles. For those unaware, a band scramble is an event in which individuals who play musical instruments are randomly selected to form new bluegrass bands. They’re then given a bit of time to rehearse before their first performance as a group.

Get rid of stage fright.

There’s no place for shyness, inhibitions, and stage fright in a bluegrass campground. Besides on mic sessions and various competitions, there are also the late-night jamming sessions to look forward to. You can only enjoy these activities if you’re willing to get up there and just have fun performing bluegrass music!
