Heads in Harmony; A Maine Vocals Festival

This year was The Way Live Should Be’s second year attending a Maine Vocals festival in Harmony, ME.

Maine Vocals is a great Maine activist group fighting for Marijuana Legalization; they have a long history in this state of peaceful advocacy and resistance. The Heads in Harmony festival this past weekend has abundant evidence of their continuing effort for improved marijuana laws. From Captain Joint, to the plants on stage, people everywhere at at the festival were blatantly standing up for their rights.

Preview: Bear Creek Music Festival in Live Oak, FL Nov. 10-13

After attending Bear Creek for the first time last year, we’ve decided this is our absolute favorite festival. It’s held within a beautiful venue and seems to have been built on a foundation of love! Utilizing a more grassroots style of organization, there is a strong sense of family among the coordinators, artists, and fans…having picked up on that vibe, we’re really looking forward to getting back to The Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park in Live Oak, FL for Bear Creek this year, November 10th-13th!
