Preview: Govinda @ Wakarusa
Text, Photos, & Video by Tim Borland
Last year one of the hidden surprises of Wakarusa festival was the early morning performance by electronic musician Govinda. The musician greeted fans who had soldiered through until the morning light experiencing as many bands as possible. Scantily clad dancers cavorted about the stage to the mixture of organic violin and electronic sounds.
The Mod Crew was on site to interview Govinda last year during the festival and capture some video of the musician’s live performance. Govinda is currently based out of Austin, Texas, and will be returning to Wakarusa 2014 for another sunrise performance at the Satellite Stage beginning at 5:15 a.m. Sunday morning.
Those who have not picked up their Wakarusa tickets are in luck – the festival extended the current price of $204 plus taxes and fees currently available on the website. However, prices will soon increase. Those wishing to get a head start to Mulberry Mountain can arrive early today, and there will even be music performances such as That 1 Guy occurring on the Backwoods and Riverside stages tonight. Check back soon for Mod Mobilian’s live coverage of Wakarusa 2014.
