WhatYouWill is a outdoor festival dedicated to the art of improvisation, and will occur this year on the weekend of June 14th-15th, 2013.
The festival offers the chance for improvising musicians and listeners to share in the inspiration and relaxation of a serene rural environment. The hospitality of hosts Dale and Wendy Johnson gives the festival a true “family” feeling, and the presence of Dale’s many sculptures throughout the land lend their own creative inspiration to the proceedings. The program features both local and visiting artists, as well as some interstate Midwest collaborations.
This year there will be no programming on Sunday afternoon as we’ve found that most people depart Sunday morning. However we are highly encouraging campers to come out for the Friday evening opening. This has been a special time the past couple of years and has quite a different feeling than Saturday. Some of the late-night sessions on Friday have been truly epic, as well..
- You are welcome to invite friends who you think would appreciate the festival. You are also welcome to camp on the grounds, and generally enjoy the land. Portable restroom facilities will be available. As per FOOD– we are encouraging more of a DIY approach this year. Potluck has worked the best in the past and ensures that no one has to spend more of their time cooking than actually enjoying the festival. There is also a pizza/sub shop within 5 minutes of the venue on Kilbourne Rd. (C-Dees).
We’re happy to be able to share in all of the creativity and excitement in the music of the moment, and look forward to seeing everyone who has graced our past festivals, and meeting and presenting new people too.
