Middle Waves Music Festival turns up the volume and the good vibes this Friday and Saturday, September 15th and 16th at Headwaters Park. This second annual festival offers plenty of events to get hyped about. If you’re still on the fence about attending, check out our 5 can’t-miss reasons to go to Middle Waves.
1. The Music
With three stages of local and national acts, the official lineup is jam-packed with great music. Between headliner MGMT and a medley of different music, you’re guaranteed to find tunes that you vibe with.
2. Vibe Events
Speaking of vibes, there’s oodles of activities you can participate in for free with admission thanks to the Middle Waves Vibe Tribe. Get your hair done at the Braid Bar, pick up some glitter from the Glitter Bar, take a yoga class, meet a unicorn, snap a selfie at the photo ops, or hang out in a hammock or VW Bus – and that’s just a few events put together for the Middle Waves experience.
3. The Village
The Village includes booths by local businesses and food vendors. Work up an appetite with all the activity? Don’t worry, your favorite fare is available, including Bravas Hot Dogs and Tacos Bravas, Vietnummy, Affine, and Big Apple Pizza and Deli. Beer and wine tents can be found in on both sides of the festival. Cheers!
4. Mini Waves
Did you know that Middle Waves is kid friendly? There’s a festival within the festival just for kiddos called Mini Waves. Kids can visit the petting zoo, head to Storytime between Sets, get creative at the Craft Station or Construction Junction, get their face painted, play in one-of-a-kind cardboard playsets at Boxlanders Playspace, and unleash their inner rockstar with a variety of instruments at Sweetwater’s Instrumentation Station.
5. VVIP Access (That’s Very, Very Important Person)
If you want star treatment, a VVIP pass is the ticket. Literally. When you purchase a VVIP Weekend Pass, you get access to more than a few things. The VVIP lounge at the St. Marys Stage features comfortable seating, a beer garden with picnic tables and premium experiences including complimentary Thai massage, deluxe air-conditioned restrooms and complimentary, catered dinner by The Deck at Don Hall’s on Friday and Saturday night. Plus, you get 2 free drink tickets and a swag bag.
