So I haven't seen anyone bring this up yet, but the festival looks like it has a worthwhile lineup and a very cool place to camp. They will allow open camp fires and tubing in the river, which sounds awesome. It's outside of Nashville to the northwest and I expect for people driving it's comparable to Roo. Also, it will be my 30th birthday weekend! Anyone else interested in possible getting a group together?

From the website...
FLY FREE TO WHAT MOVES YOU, THE RHYTHM IN YOUR SOUL.
Born from the desire to reach out to fans of all genres, sizes, shapes, and colors. We want your weird, your worries, your wonders. Think Creation. Community. Camaraderie. Unity. Diversity. Fun. Family. Freedom. Fly free for a weekend, make friends for a lifetime. The first annual FLY FREE Fest is happening at Red River Valley Park in Adams, TN, just 40 miles NW of Nashville. Here’s why that is superbly amazingly awesome:
Wooded River-side Campsites CANOEING. Campground Bathrooms/Showers Hot breakfast! The Gorgeous Red River Car-side Camping Late Night Music Morning Yoga Clean Portable Toilets Food/Beverage/Ice Sold On-Site Firewood Sold On-Site (open fires allowed at each campsite!) Swimming in the Red River Live Art Food/Art Vendors
I'd love to celebrate your birthday with you, but there's no way I could make this happen.
I know...it looks like Mountain Oasis can't happen for me this year because I'm busy every single weekend in October already, plus I will be in NYC running a marathon the first weekend in November. But this does look like a pretty fun festival, amirite?
Everyone experiences music differently.To say that something is subjectively wrong with live music is to also say that you are more than just your credentials or experience. It says that you are above whatever it is that you see as being the standard. Breaking everything down critically to the point where you are above every matter looking down on it only isolates you and makes you look foolish.
I am a good 90% sure I will be at this one, will have to contact those in the know about where to park if not camping though. I may decide to camp anyway (we get campfires..mmm...smores!) but I live less than 30 minutes from Adams, so my bed and hot showers would be nice as well.

At this point I have no crew going with me, though that could easily change considering how much time we have. I'm just imagining the campfires, and swimming in the river, and LEGIT showers (even if the line is long). Plus October weather is my favorite, when it's finally starting to turn cool again after hot southern summers. I think this little festival could turn out to be a lot of fun, even if I roll solo.
I just found out about this festival! I live in Clarksville, which is like a 20 minute drive(if that)! I hope my wife can get the days off of work, but I am totally going either way. I started this summer at Roo, I am going to finish it with a non-mainstream music fest! Life is good! BTW one week after roo, I won tickets to see Bob Dylan on the river in Nashville. Let your freak flag fly, baby!
So I mentioned that there might be some Inforoo folks wanting to attend and was told that we can reserve a group camping spot (for a brunch and shenanigans, obviously) if we get some people together. If y'all want to form a Fly Free group camp let me know and we can start planning for that.
In addition, Access information for guests with disabilities will be available on the Fly Free website tonight. Please check the information page and contact the email provided to secure accommodations if necessary. flyfreefest.com/
My wife and I will probably get there between 1PM and 3PM(guesstimating, of course)on Friday. We should think of a camp name, or something where we can easily find each other when we get inside. If we arrive at about the same time, it might be easier. I have a pop-up gazebo with walls(dark green)8x8 and a grey Rev 4. I have red hair and Critters tattooed on each arm, and my wife is half-Korean with brown hair. We will also have a fire pit. Have a safe drive to the fest, y'all! BTW, she's bringing tequila-filled gummy bears!
