Live Blogging from the Festival at Sandpoint

The River Journal and the Festival Information Booth give you a first-hand look at the area's hottest music festival

Each year, for two weeks in August, some of the River Journal crew can be found down at Sandpoint’s Memorial Field, manning the Information Booth for the Festival at Sandpoint. For four days in each week of that two-week period, from early afternoon ‘til the wee hours of the morning, we guide people to restrooms, share our cell phones with Festival attendees dismayed to learn there’s no pay phone on the field, take pictures, visit with friends, guide people to the food they’re looking for or the CD they want to buy, take charge of lost children and dogs (plus shoes, cell phones, sunglasses, wallets and more), sell raffle tickets and encourage people to support the continuation of the Festival by volunteering, donating and pretty please NOT smoking on the field.

This year we’ll be adding to our duties by blogging LIVE from the Festival each and every night. We’ll let you know what the line is looking like, how the band’s warm-up is going, which cooking smells the most delectable, provide updates on any traffic snarls we hear about, plus let those who can’t attend know what the Festival experience is all about.

You can tune in to the blog and find out what’s going on by visiting (on the Internet) here.

Not only will the River Journal crew be blogging, but we’re inviting other Festival volunteers and staff, field vendors and opening acts to blog their thoughts and impressions as well. Who knows, maybe even one of the mainstage acts will want to get in on the action!

And if you happen to be down at Memorial Field, enjoying the Festival yourself, why not stop by the Information Booth to say hi, and maybe post to the blog yourself?

Check it out, and let us know if we succeed in showing you a Festival at Sandpoint you’ve never seen before. We think it will be “worth wading through.”
