Bear Creek Music & Arts Festival Simply Never Disappoints

Bear Creek Music and Arts Festival recently went down Nov. 13-16 in Live Oak, FL and featured Umphrey’s McGee, Chris Robinson Soulive Revue, Lettuce, Soulive, Dumpstaphunk, The New Mastersounds, Budos Band, Talib Kweli, Break Science, The Floozies, St. Paul & The Broken Bones, The Nth Power and many more.

We at HYPE think its pretty safe to say, that Bear Creek Music & Arts Festival, is the best funk, jam, fusion festival in the nation and maybe even the world. This is for a good number of reasons.

Second, the music at Bear Creek is always top notch. The producers of this particular festival really do a stunning job each year selecting the perfect acts. Each year though, the true highlights come with the interactions between the bands and the artists on stage and with the crowd. Everyone literally plays with everyone and everyone mingles with everyone, but trust me, its like nothing you’ve ever experienced. Unless you’ve been to a Bear Creek.untitled shoot-060

And third, the most amazing thing about Bear Creek, is every single beautiful smiling face that attends, puts on and performs at BC. The people are simply incredible. There always seems to be a common alliance of love and good vibes at Bear Creek. There was certainly no shortage of that this year.

This year HYPE sent staff photographer Romy Santos up to Suwannee to cover Bear Creek. Check out his amazing images below and like his page here.
