Today’s festival occurred amidst alternating periods of harsh sun and explosive thunderstorm. Several times, the artists had to clear the stage due to the danger of bolts being drawn their way. The audience scattered and artists, staff, VIPs, and volunteers huddled in whichever tents were not collapsing. Thankfully, everything was clear and beautiful for Andrea‘s set.
Today made for a nice winding-down after yesterday’s powerhouse performances, and I got to meet a few interesting people too. If only the BluesFest volunteering system wasn’t so inflexible and demanding, I would definitely volunteer my services there as well.
