Festival Description

The Way Life Should Be celebrated its inaugural edition in 2011 with a diverse lineup of acts — reggae, bluegrass, rock, jazz, funk, hip hop and electronic. The small-scale festival goes back to the basics of music festivals where people come together, enjoy one another, meet new people, listen to great music music and camp together for the weekend. The festival takes place at Roaring Acres Farm and is limited to 2,500 attendees.
