On Set with The Wild Honey Pie’s Welcome Campers Part 1

A few weeks ago I attended The Wild Honey Pie‘s Welcome Campers SXSW series right outside of Austin, TX. If those words mean nothing to you they will soon when you realize that you too could attend one of these awesome events for free.

Welcome Campers is basically a music video set and you are an extra. You will be hanging out in a beautiful setting and seeing intimate performances by up and coming bands while eating and drinking for free. There’s usually only 100 spots for extras I mean campers so the group of people who won spots was quite eclectic.

The bands who played during my stay at Camp Champions in Marble Falls, TX included Oh Land, The Eastern Sea, Wild Child, On An On, and surprise guest Talib Kweli.

On the first day, we arrived at camp and Oh Land played an upbeat set where we danced and made crafts. We got to explore the rest of the ground, which were pretty fancy for a kids summer camp. Also lots of obligatory Texas pride.

That night we saw The Eastern Sea perform, they were one of my favorites. Their set was on the lake, lots of tiki torches and even fireworks. We got to play with sparklers as well but it wasn’t as exciting by the 6th or so time.

More Texas Pics to come.
