Whiskey for the Lady and Jumpship Astronaut played the 2014 Wakarusa Music Festival
The Wakarusa Music Festival is one of the south’s premier music festivals and is home to artists like Girl Talk, The Black Keys, and Snoop Lion. The festival’s 2014 lineup included The String Cheese Incident, Walk Off The Earth, and The Flaming Lips.
Whiskey for the Lady understands the value of having a big festival name on their show list:
“The ability to say ‘We’ve played at Wakarusa’ will definitely help us continue to book larger gigs that we may have never had access to otherwise.”
Chris Bourland of Jumpship Astronaut agreed that this opportunity would open doors for the band
“We don’t always get a chance to attend things like huge music festivals when usually our focus is on finding time to tour and record. Having artist passes allowed us to meet and talk with some industry people we wouldn’t normally have access to.”
As an artist just getting their start, this provided the band with an inside look into the festival world; Bourland added that this is “very valuable information for a band just starting to tour and play festivals.”
