Festy GoNuts

The Ultimate Music Festival Resource for enhancing your music festival experience.

The Music, The Culture and The Adventure.

Your Ultimate Music Festival Resource

Sure, we love live music. But we LOVE music festivals.

What’s the difference? Music festivals aren’t just about the music (although that’s a big piece of the pie). Music festivals are about embracing the whole festy experience – the music, the people, the road trip, the camping, the lifestyle.

Festy GoNuts is devoted to helping you make the best of your music festival experience…every part of it.  We strive to be your ultimate music festival resource.  That way, you can truly find your “fest” self by fully embracing the Music, the Culture and the Adventure.  

Music Festivals. Don’t just go. GoNuts!

Leftover Salmon Solshine 2016

Leftover Salmon’s Solshine Music Festival 2016

Leftover Salmon has been truly embracing this “comfort festival” scene over the past few years, and their fans are truly digging it. LOS has been putting on mini-festivals in locations where attendees can “choose their own adventure”, from Chicago to Asheville to Estes Park. Yes, sometimes it costs more – after all, pimpin’ ain’t easy (or free!). But that was just the opposite this past weekend in Winter Park, CO where they put on 2 FREE nights of music in Hideaway Park.
