First ever Waterloo Music Festival! This sounds pretty exciting, right?
This past weekend was fun in Austin. Despite the wet weather, hundreds of people were gathered at Carson Creek Ranch for the first ever Waterloo Music Festival.
Rainy weather in Austin didn’t stop festival goers from enjoying the Waterloo Music Festival.
“It’s a wonderful thing when music fans just don’t care about the weather,” said Dave Machinist, one of the festival organizers. Real music lovers came to enjoy the music, despite the fact that it was drizzling here and there.
The festival introduces a three –day event featuring All –Americana sounds blending folk and bluegrass.
“The Americana roots of our music scene have been kind of underrepresented, so we felt like it was time to change that”, said Steve Sternschein, a producer of the festival. For attendees who wanted to stay overnight, there was a camp out options available, such as vehicle parking with a tent space, RV camping and ‘’glamping’’.
The latter is a glamorous way of spending the night. Let’s agree that having an air conditioning options, bed and other amenities at the camp is really glamorous.
The team who organized the festival also thought about the weather conditions. A festival spokesperson said the festival has a full team of safety experts and plan in place. First ever Waterloo festival sold single-day passes starting at $99 dollars. Those camping out paid a couple hundred dollars extra.
The doors of the festival opened up on Friday at 2 p.m. at the Carson Creek Ranch near State Highway 71 and US Highway 183.
Attendees of the festivals were enjoying music performances, taking pictures in front of a mural painted by Austin’s Drew Lormand and just having a good time.
The event wraps up on Sunday night. The organizers are looking forward to having an even better Waterloo Music Festival next year.
