With Sound on Sound Fest only a few hours away, festival go-ers and diverse music consumers state wide are preparing for an inaugural experience embellished with resonance and unity.

Despite cynicism, the camping festival expects large crowds, good vibes and stellar sounds. Amongst others, A-list musicians like Phantogram, Purity Ring and Explosions in The Sky will be taking Sherwood Forest by storm.
