View Full Version : Wakarusa DVD?
05-31-2004, 02:46 AM
Are there any plans to produce a DVD? I know there have to be some people wondering the same thing. Some may think it's too commercial to sell a DVD, but frankly, it's just a great way to remember the festival and an even better way to show the people that didn't come what they missed. I hope yall decide to produce one, I'm just not sure how you'll pick which acts and songs to show! Hopefully Team B will clue me in...

I've heard rumblings about it, but we're still not sure yet. Maybe this poll will help in convincing...

I wish I could purchase DVD's for all the concerts I go to. Ahhh, memories............ :D

If too many people vote \"hell yeah\" will the DVD be over priced?
Also, if you do a DVD, be sure to start a mailing list to let people know when its out.

These guys aren't dumb, they won't overprice the DVD, I'd imagine it'd be around $20. That's pretty standard. But with the pleasant surprises they keep throwin' at us, I wouldn't be surprised if it's much less.
Let's hear what everyone wants to see if they decide to make a DVD......

I would love to see a Wakarusa dvd a la Bonnaroo style...the first one that is..great footage and a great time
I thought the 2002 Bonnaroo DVD was much better than the 2003 DVD. I guess it's just a matter of what you're wanting to see. 2003 had much more crowd shots and 2002 had more shots of the bands and artists.
I'd like to see a Wakarusa DVD done in a similar style of the Woodstock DVD. They used a split-screen so they could show twice the footage in the same amount of time. They were able to show plenty of shots of the artists AND crowd. It's almost too much to handle at times because you can't catch everything at once, but that makes it more fun to watch over and over.
I've heard if there is a large enough demand for a DVD they may just make one, so lets get some more response on here!

The woodstock DVD split screen is the greatest thing in the world. I would hope to see the same on a Wakarusa DVD as well.
06-04-2004, 01:34 PM
I'm for a DVD. Crowd shots? Woodstock had 'em because it was shot as a documentary. Wouldn't you rather focus on the artists? See how they are enjoying themselves or not, how they are reacting to the crowd, to see their expressions, how they are feeling about what they are playing. Crowd shots are nice for those who aren't there to see how much fun we had.

Music DVDs make up most of my collection...they're one of my favorite things to watch. I have yet to get a DVD of a show that I was at...that would really kick ass.
06-04-2004, 03:58 PM
Yeah, 1st Bonnarroo DVD was much better than 2nd. 2nd one was overproduced and didn't have nearly as much music.

So far 68% are voting for DVD at any cost, and 32% are voting for an affordably priced DVD. :P

Obviously a DVD would be a great idea, and a big seller...... if its done right.
I have many musical DVD's, and I must say Bonnaroo 2002 is my favorite, and I think the best put together music DVD i have.
Get a lot of latenight footage, sts9, particle.. make sure to get some keller williams, and others who arent on other DVD's already... Get a feel for the festival site, the people...show the whole 9 yards, let people know what they saw, or what they missed.
I know every time I watch the bonnaroo 2002 video I kick myself in the ass for not making it

i wouldd definately buy it it would be gnarly
06-04-2007, 11:13 PM
I'll Netflix it!

What ever happened to Jam Cam? I was just cleaning out my backpack and found the waka 05 disk
06-04-2007, 11:53 PM
Id buy one 8)

i really wish they made one from last year like they said they would. last year's lineup was my favorite so far..would've been so sweet to have a dvd. maybe this year?

i also have been collecting music dvd's for years. Everything from Neil Young in the early 70s, Rory Gallagher 74 irish tour, Charlie Hunter Quintet (BAD ASS), Roger Waters in the flesh (BAD ASS), Garaj Mahal, Steve Kimock, Keller, i want the sts9 one, the jfjo would also be nice.
They made a Wakarusa 2005 dvd (jam cam) i dunno how many people got a hold of them though. Would be awesome to see more documentary and footage split screen from 2007 or 2008. That sounds really great.
06-05-2007, 10:29 AM
yeah i have the 2005 dvd...just watched it the other day to indulge even more in the anticipation. i really think they could've chosen some better sets to put on there...its nice seeing split lip rayfield, moonshine still, p-groove, and jazz mandolin project though.
it would've been sweet to have a dvd from last year with buckethead, claypool, the flaming lips, bernie worrell, chicago afrobeat project, yard dogs road show, etc.
hopefully this year we'll get one with ozrics, toubab krewe, delta nove, dubconscious, pnuma trio, lotus, etc....

This DVD is still available, here is a link I found. Unfortunately some of the best sets from '05 are not included.

A DVD would be a great keepsake/momento of the event. Be able to re-live the awesome shows you were at and be able to catch a glimps of the shows you happened to miss.
I always like a fair amount of crowd shots, documentary stuff mixed in. By seeing the people in attendance you get a better feeling of the vibes and the times. The Scene!
The greatest band in the world could be on stage, but without the cheering and singing and dancing fans - it would be just a band playing music.
I'd buy one for sure!
06-05-2007, 11:38 AM
Damn Poly, the Jazz Mandolin Project would be DOPE from 2005. If anyone caught their set from 2004, they were one of the best bands of the entire event. I was completely blown away by them.
06-05-2007, 12:58 PM
yeah, i think the JMP sets from 2004 were more mindblowing than 2005, but 2005 was still good. they really missed a lot of the best sets for that dvd though - Karl Denson, Pnuma Trio's 1st waka appearance, john butler trio, xavier rudd, particle, lotus, john brown's body etc.
but damn, it looks like our prayers have been answered! according to an email i got from Wakarusa:
2007 Wakarusa DVD Pre-Order
Be sure to pre-order your Wakarusa 2007 DVD at the merch tent in the main concert grounds. It?s a great way to remember all the wonderful music from this year?s festival! As an added bonus the DVD will include exclusive footage from last year?s Wakarusa as well!
thank you wakarusa!
06-05-2007, 12:59 PM
According to today's email they are making a DVD of this year's Waka!!!
Also...for those of you who were unhappy with the set selections from the JamCam DVD...keep in mind they filmed a TON of music but the bands and the bands' management have to sign off on it. It's not the DVD producer's fault if your favorite act wasn't included. I REALLY wanted a song from the Wilco set (yes, they were recording) but their management wouldn't sign off because they were afraid it would infringe on sales of an upcoming Wilco DVD and they didn't want to get lumped into the jam scene (lame). However...I'd say the Wilco fans got shafted on that one if they were simply referring to the solo Tweedy disc...
06-05-2007, 01:40 PM
Apparently, MOFRO wouldn't sign off last year as well for fear of being lumped into the \"jam\" scene.

having your own dvd coming out is an understandable reason, but to avoid being called a jamband? wow, that sounds totally ridiculous to me. \"who cares if our fans wanna see the recording that was made of our appearance at waka...we wouldn't want to spoil our image\". why play at the festival in the first place?
06-05-2007, 04:12 PM
thats a damn good point Poly.
I will definitely be checkin out the 2007 dvd that is sweet. I probly wont reserve a copy cuz i wanna see who is gonna be featured on the dvd itself before i purchase. But i will most likely purchase one at some point :)
