Nochella: Vote For The Random Music Festival A Stereogum Writer Will Be Forced To Cover

This summer, I will submit myself to a festival of your choosing. After reading through your nominations, we’ve narrowed it down to ten amusing, potentially treacherous events. We decided to eliminate Gathering Of The Juggalos in the interest of originality (the outsider-attends-Juggalo-festival angle has been sufficiently covered) and my safety (I’m 5’4″). Below, you’ll find brief descriptions of each festival and a form for voting. Please be gentle.
