Hope at Hideaway Festival Fills Void from Bassnectar 808: Be Interactive

by /\bz Groove Machine

As large festivals fade away into the distance, some in the industry are trying to keep the music alive with smaller venues and fewer crowds. Hope at Hideaway 2020 is a communal gathering of music, wellness, and support featuring a stacked line up of local and regional DJs and producers. The three-day festival over the August 7-9 weekend will promote a variety of EDM music as well as health and wellness activities, art, yoga, totem making, a kandi station, yard-style games, a dunk the DJ tank, and even a voter registration table. Although this may be a change of pace from the heavily anticipated Bassnectar 808: Be Interactive 2020, festival-goers will get to experience a more intimate and less packed environment. This EDM camping festival is also located near a popular river tubing area, so attendees can enjoy a casual float down the river in addition to the curated event.

Hope at Hideaway 2020 will be held just down the road from the prior location of Bassnectar 808: Be Interactive 2020, which was supposed to occur over the same weekend before it was canceled and before accusations against Bassnectar were brought into the public eye. In a similar fashion to the fundraising mission of the non-profit, Be Interactive, Hope at Hideaway organizers will be donating all EDM camping festival proceeds to Twin Cities BLM organizations, the local Somerset food shelf, and mental health awareness. Tickets must be purchased separately from the camping experience, but at $25 a festival ticket and $25 per camping attendee per night, the weekend is certainly affordable. Check out the Facebook event for more information, or click the line up below to buy a ticket. The event organizers have announced COVID-19 restrictions, which can be read in full here. Masks will be required at all stages to be in compliance with Wisconsin’s recent mask mandate, and social distancing is encouraged.

Hope at Hideaway Shines Spotlight through Shadows Cast by The Lost Year August 17, 2020 - 00:30

[…] Hope at Hideaway 2020 offered a little something for everyone, with a variety of Bass, Dubstep, House, Techno, and even Trance sets speckled throughout the stages. The totem and kandi-making stations offered a memorial keepsake for attendees to take home from the weekend. The Dunk the DJ station was placed prominently at the edge of the art-making area, tempting those with the proper charitable vindictiveness to donate money for a throw. The campsites themselves were huge and could fit way more than the suggested six individuals per campsite, unlike the squished regulated areas we’re used to at large festivals. We also had fire pits at our campsites, and we were able to keep our fire going all night long without complaint. Hope at Hideaway guests could also take part in the Tube the River segment of the campground, which added to the myriad of activities available throughout the weekend. […]
