I've been to many concerts, and many music festivals. WE Fest was my first full country festival. I've heard for years about WE Fest being THE party of the summer, so I went in hoping my almost-four-decade-old body could handle it.

Kelly & I arrived late Wednesday afternoon. We set up shop, hung out with other media folks, went to a media-invite party (OPEN BAR!), then passed out (from being awake since 3am...really...).

Full disclosure: I didn't watch any of the headliners. Our RV was right behind the stage, so laying on a heat pad in bed listening to amazing performances worked just fine for me. Is that so bad?
