Falcon Ridge 2017 Music Camps survey

by AlanRowoth on July 14, 2017

People keep asking me questions I don’t know the answer to about the music camps in the campground for this year’s Falcon Ridge Folk Festival. Rather than guess, I thought I had better crowdsource the answers. If you are doing a music camp at Falcon Ridge and want people to know about it, please fill out this form and locate the camp (approximately) on the map grid above. A week or so before the festival, I will compile these answers into a single posting and maybe even try to generate some sort of infographic if I am not swamped with other stuff. Thanks. Please only fill out the form if it’s your camp. But other general campground music observations are welcome. Please complete the form and reply to this blog post or email to BigOrangeTarp@gmail.com
