The way Dave Matthews talked with us made us feel like we had been friends for years. Except I had to explain to him what "jorts" are!

DMB Caravan

People came from all over the world to camp out and see Dave Matthews Band. We even met a guy named Jordan Byrnes from New York who booked a flight at 3 a.m. Saturday morning so he could see the shows on Saturday and Sunday.

Better With Friends

You really can't capture the expansive beauty of The Gorge with a photo. You have to do it with your own eyes, and even better if you're with your best friend.

Time for Tim

Guitarist Tim Reynolds can draw a crowd anywhere, when that anywhere is the mecca for Dave Matthews Band fans, he draws an absolute frenzy.

Free Love

Daily private concerts, like this one with Allen Stone, made VW Area 41 the place to be. The lines were long with people dying to be one of the few lucky ones to get in.

What Would You Write?

Awesome wall to write captions on. People loved putting their quotes up. I went with my favorite Dave Matthews Band line: "But every day should be a good day to die," from 'You Never Know.'

DMB Live

Sitting in the most beautiful amphitheater in the world while listening to the most beautiful music in the world. There is absolutely nothing that compares to seeing Dave Matthews Band at The Gorge.

Game Time

VW had set up tons of little games to keep everyone entertained during the day. Bag toss, volleyball, board games, etc. Was a great way to interact with some of our fellow campers.
