Atop a mountain, surrounded by an Arkansas forest, lies the 10-years-running music festival, Wakarusa.

The event offered festival-goers from across the country an atmosphere different from the more established music festivals. A girl in a native American outfit with neon face paint said, "Bonnaroo is so big now, though. People are never as nice there as they are here."

It was obvious that the musicians love to perform at music festivals. The atmosphere gave performers like Allen Stone the space he needed to be his rock-star self. Veer from the main stage, and you would find the most loving fans, like at the Backwoods Stage where fans of Langhorne Slim jumped the rails and rushed the stage during his 4th song. The bands were well-aware of their patrons' hardships with the mud. So when fans filled the Revival Tent for Earphunk, their dancing in the oozing mud was noted, and the band reciprocated with equal energy.
