Clear skies, great atmosphere & happy campers

Forget the award-winning international artists, the extreme sports and dance parties, Hannah Lee comes to Easterfest for the people.

If you visit Hannah, Josh Lee and Daniel Huskisson at their campsite, you’ll be offered a chair, a hot cross bun and a drink.

The three say the festival atmosphere is one of the best parts of Easterfest.

“I always come camping,” Hannah said. “I like people getting out the guitars and just having the random jam sessions.”

These are the guys who started the ‘Where’s Rachel?’ craze last year, which spread through the whole campsite and then onto Facebook. They’re proud of that accomplishment.

They are also fans of Easterfest’s new sports zone, and Hannah was stoked about seeing Jars of Clay.

“I’ve wanted to hear them live for so long,” she said.

Their only low point for the festival was that they forgot their pillows.

Forgetting bedding seemed to be a theme in the campsite, according to Cody Sutton, Shannon Kruger and Lily Robinson. Their group ended up one sleeping bag short for the first night of camping—something they quickly remedied on Saturday.

Nevertheless, they were having a great time—especially Shannon, who had never been to a music festival before.

“I just really like hearing the different bands,” she said.

A few tents over, a pirate flag marked the most luxurious campsite in the grounds, with one group of friends bringing in several couches and a sofa bed.

They admitted they were so comfortable, it was hard to leave the site to venture down into the festival.
