Golden Plains

Golden Plains is a Premium Music Festival on an Epic Long Weekend in the Greatest of Outdoors. It is staged in Autumn so the weather is warm and stable. Afternoon goes on all day; the sun like honey on the trees, then a giant spike of excitement goes kabloooey at nightfall. The Summer Fool is spent by March so Golden Plains is oblivious to that particular strain of vain folly. Golden Plains is for seekers not attention-seekers.
