View Full Version : How did you hear about Wakarusa???
06-15-2004, 11:19 AM
I was reading some of the other threads and I was impressed with how many out-of-state people are going to Wakarusa. I grew up in Topeka, so it kinda makes me proud that something like this is going on in the area. But I also started wondering how everyone heard about the festival--did they do any advertising, or was it just spread by word of mouth on internet bulletin boards and stuff?

I believe my wife found out about it on the jamboard forum.

They have a fest listing of almost every music fest that happens in the year.

I saw it on Jambase a couple weeks after I bought tickets to Bonnaroo. The Bonnaroo tickets went on eBay that week and I bought Waka tickets as soon as they sold.

I'm a wee bit foggy on this...It may have been the JamBase Festival Guide, the Central Plains Jamband Society web-site, or a Festifarian dream!!!!
See y'all in a few...

I knew before it was ever announced :P It was a rumor for a little while here in lawrence.. maybe a month or 2 before it was announced... but the rumor was they were trying to get SCI or The Dead to headline.. too bad that never happened, but I read another post here, about an article in the paper where they said next year they will look at getting a main headliner.. Also didnt know it was going to be as big as it is now.. just amazing 8)

Heard about it on the petdekat krewe board (group of loosely disorganized music festivalists) from bill from KC.

I had flyers passed out and posters up in Oklahoma, Arkansas, New Mexico, and many that I sent back to small town kansas.

my ears received sound waves and processed them into twinkies to which my stomach enjoyed.

I heard the buzz around KC and saw flyers at the coffee shop, and although it took me a couple of years to break away from the corporate cult, I was finally set free!

I'm trying to remember exactly. A friend of a friend of mine is a local glass blower in lawrence, and told my buddy. Then I saw Split Lip was playing,.. and i think i was sold,.. Ive been to every Wakarusa Festival since it started, so its kinda hard to remember all the details. So my consensus would be, I heard about Wakarusa through word of mouth. Peace yall.. I havent posted in awhile but lets not give up on this festival. :lol:

A kid I worked with (and only knew for about a week) had free day passes from one of the vendors, so I went along. This was 2004, so if I remember correctly, I think the vendor said they were each given 10 day passes to give out to help spread the word. We had a great time and I've been back every year since!
