MOUNTAIN HOME – TIPS

Mountain Home

There’s really no happier feeling than hearing your favorite country songs being performed live with your best friends. We can’t wait to dance around and sing at the top of our lungs at the Mountain Home Country Music Festival this summer. Even though this festival may not be until July, we’re so excited we started planning early. Here’s a few of our favorite ways to get ready and get pumped for Mountain Home:

1. Get a new cowboy hat

Wearing a cowboy hat at Mountain Home is a must. What better way to prepare for this festival than getting a new one? You can never have enough cowboy hats, so this year get a hat that really shows off your personality. If you get a really extravagant one, it may even catch the attention of your favorite artist.

2. Put on your favorite pair of boots

Ain’t nothing better than a good pair of boots, but we all have that one pair that we love a little more than the rest. You just feel more connected to country music when you’re wearing your boots, right? Nothing gets us more excited for a country festival than wearing our boots around everywhere we go.

3. Listen to every song by every artist on the lineup

Last, but not least, get all the preparation you can. You want to be that person that knows every word to every song since you’re the biggest fan. There’s no feeling like screaming the lyrics along with the rest of the crowd, or even better being one of the few people who knows even the most obscure songs. If you need a little inspiration, check out our Spotify playlist!

MINUS ZERO – ARTIST ADDED

Minus Zero

Don’t mind the winter chill in Stratton Mountain, Vermont because from April 7-8, the Minus Zero Winter Sports and Music Festival is happening, and it’s going to be cool.

Minus Zero just announced the performance of producer and DJ, Illenium, at the 2017 festival. A relatively new artist to the EDM scene, Illenium is beginning to make a name for himself. His songs “It’s All On U” and “Reverie” respectively earned #5 and #13 positions on Billboard’s Twitter Emerging Artists” charts in 2016.
