To many it’s ICP’s annual music festival…..I like to call it mini Amsterdam. Tho I’m sure Amsterdam is much nicer than Hog Rock. This festival holds no bar. It’s durty, grungy, a bit trashy and full of drugs. You can find just about any substance to enhance your Gathering experience on “Dealer’s Bridge”.
The fest itself is pretty small. The grounds map looks GIANT with all the camp sites but you can walk it in a matter of minutes. There is the main stage, second stage and of course wrestling stage and the freak show stage. All within minutes of each other.
Now being a festival person, I have never been to a festival quite like this. Full of dibochary around every corner. I mean I get drug usage at a concert. Weed is smoked just about anywhere these days. Even at Lolla you will see people light up a joint while waiting for the next band or smoking a joint while chillin’ in the grass listening to some hippie music. But I have never seen anyone just bust out lines like it ain’t no big thang. And you never hear anyone asking me to show them my tits or flash a joint and a bag of a powdery substance asking if I need anything. Sure debauchery!
What to do:
You can keep busy with 9am wake and bake parties to afternoon sideshows before the main stage opens at 6pm lasting til midnight. If you are still roaring to go you can hit up some wrestling matches and a comedy show. If you are still up after all that there is always the ‘I’ve never been so high after party”.
