This past weekend, we attended an electronic dance music festival called Hydrotechnics at Echo Lake Campground in Afton, NY. This event was put together by a well-known New England events group called The Mutiny. We prefer smaller, local events because the music tends to be much more diverse and the atmosphere less controlled. We have been to some of the larger EDM festivals, such an Electric Daisy Carnival, and although they are spectacular in their own way, they’re just too big. Also, we were super excited because our two favorite DJ’s, Venom & Irene, were going to be performing!
Of course, it was a huge bonus that we could bring Lady T for a long weekend of camping. We left very early last Friday morning and arrived at the campground around 1:30 PM. We were guided down a long dirt road, which was very bumpy and muddy. Most attendees were car camping and there weren’t many RV sites available.The guide offered us a choice of 3 open sites, all of which were right on the lake, and we picked the most spacious one.
We got some rain on Saturday night, which made the muddy road to the stages an interesting walk, but overall we had a great time. There were poi spinners, fire performers, and hula “hoopers”, and the music was lots of fun. Also, I picked up a couple of cool things from vendors We See Color Creations and Be It Art. Check out the pics and video from the event!
