    Howdy all, just here to post up some relevant info on the 10KLFand maybe catch some heads that might not be going. Plus you don’t have to dig through the site…here’s the scoop. I’m hoping folks will read this and decide to make the trek. You still have a grip of time to make it happen.

    This is no Bonnaroo either- sorry I’m into smaller fests. So here’s the scoop…

    4th year running...10,000 Lakes Festival (10KLF) takes place Wednesday, July 19th through Saturday, July 22nd, 2006 at the scenic Soo Pass Ranch in Detroit Lakes, Minnesota.

    The Festival showcases over 45 artists and bands on four stages, including, Phil Lesh & Friends, Trey Anastasio, String Cheese Incident, Keller Williams, O.A.R. (Of A Revolution), The Benevento/Russo Duo featuring Mike Gordon, Umphrey's McGee, Steve Kimock…umm, and Railroad Earth- just to name a few.



    The event ticket price includes all band performances 7/19/06 - 7/22/06…that means no hidden fees for late night shows.

    All campgrounds will open at 10:00am on Wednesday, July 19th for Music and Camping Ticket holders. The campgrounds will remain open until Sunday, July 23rd at noon.

    The first band performances begin at 6:00pm on Wednesday, July 19th.

    The closest commercial airport is in Fargo, ND. (Yes, that Fargo). It’s about a 45-55 minute drive from the Fargo airport to the festival site...a hitchhike away. My original plan was to fly into Fargo and rent a car seeing as it’s so close, but I nearly had a heart attack when I saw the price of plane tickets.

    Fly into Minneapolis and it will be hella cheaper, but you sacrifice a long ass drive (4 hrs) vs. a nice stroll. I’ll probably regret it, but I’m already taking a week off from work and have burned all my vacation time.

    MrBusDriver.com has organized a number of airport bus shuttles from both the Fargo, ND and Minneapolis, MN airports directly to the festival grounds, with a return trip back to each airport on Sunday, 7/23. There is also a pickup scheduled for St. Cloud, MN.


    Some good things provided…Showers so you don’t go home smelling like death, real shitters- yes, this excites me as I’m scared of porta potties, I dunno if you’ll catch a signal on your cell, but there are payphones, outlets to charge your mobiles, and lastly….WIFI. I’m a nerd, and bring my laptop with me everywhere.


    $135 (Standard)

    $350 (VIP)


    $30 (Viking is the only one left, rest are sold out)

    $30 (VIP, located behind the main stage)

    I am def going to this fest, does anyone think that more bands will be added? they are already 10 over last years amount, but still seem to have a lot of room on the bigger stages as most of the bands are playing in the saloon stage. I can only hope particle, sound tribe, yonder, or toubab will be added.

    Can someone who's gone before tell me if they search you at all upon entering?
  14. you know what... i cant really answer that... after Coparusa and Coparoo... who knows... i read a post on the 10k frappr site saying that they almost did not have a 10k this year because the Soo Pass Ranchs owners wife is highly religious and disagrees with the drug use that goes with the festival... so her husband made a deal with her that they would up the patrol at 10k... so i dunno.. my best bet i say is if you're just thinking about bringing personal stash... leave it at home... you're better off tryin to score at 10k.. instead of getting a ticket for possession if they do search your car... also there are pipe vendors... so leave the piece as well... and buy yourself a cheap glass piece while you're there...
