Thinking about this? What is it like? How does it compare to Telluride in the sense- would the kids like it?

I can answer this.  I'm one of the people that created and managed the festival.  I stopped this last June because I needed a second fulltime volunteer job like I needed a hole in my head.

PIP is very family friendly.  We made it that way intentionally.  There are a lot of kids there and the amphitheater has a raised seating area in the front then slopes back to a huge grassy area where people throw down blankets, kid roll down the hill and play - it's great.  The sound is good everywhere.

Obviously most of Flagstaff folks will be there.  Gary and Dwayne will set up a scaled down version of the Tikibar.  I believe Bevin and Jen are already planning on coming -so it'll be a mini Telluride reunion.

Obviously we are much smaller but I remember last year someone came up to us and said this is my new Tellruide....it's what Telluride was before it got huge.  So there's that for what it is worth.

Thanks Jess.. It is sounding intriguing- must figure out schedule first... BUT, if we came, we couldnt come until Friday night perhaps Saturday afternoon- think someone could throw a tarp down for our tent?

FYI to all the folks coming to PIP from out of town....  John Hiatt and Joan Osbourne are playing here in Flagstaff the Thursday night before the festival.  If you want to come in a day early to catch that show contact either me or wifigirl offline and we can arrange space for you somewhere before the festival campground opens.

Oh, Nathan- YOU ARE GOING TO LOVE THIS!!!!!
 I was talking to Matthew about this festival and how I wanted to go but Dad is working so maybe we ( kids and I could go.)  I was telling him how lots of people we knew from Tride would be there and that  you and Tony were maybe going to play on the. stage.. THAT SOLD IT for Matthew.. His response " Oh wow- yes we need to go. Those guys who camped with us are the best musicians.. They are really nice too. They are even better than Pauolo Nutini.. They are like Leftover Salmon.!!... ( out of the mouth of babes or should I say BRAND NEW teenager)

Hey All, I read the campground opens at 12:00 noon on Thursday so it would be open for the Thursday arrivals. Don't reserve # spaces  through the Coconino County, group campsite through PIP. It's a  very  large area so don't worry. You can even show up on Friday  and still have a spot to camp without a reservation, pay when you arrive.
Aloha, See you all soon, G&D

Wow Deb, thats one heck of a compliment! Im so stoked you guys are coming!!! I cant wait!

We'll only make main stage if we finish top 3 in the band comp, but we are doing everything in our power to make that happen. 

Ron, maybe next time brother!

Much love!
