Backstage Hangs @ High Water Fest

High Water Festival 2018

This year's sold out High Water Festival rocked our freaking socks off! It was one of those memorable weekends where all the stars aligned for some perfect weather and incredible live performances.

Before all the magic happened on stage, we were movin' & shakin' behind the scenes outfitting the artist's dressing rooms and creating some cozy spots to hang backstage. We let our imaginations run wild when creating these nooks and used some fun wall hangings to inspire the color theme and style of each space. Here's a taste of the magic...

Charleston's most darling mobile bar, the Chug-a-Lug Wagon, was serving up some ice cold Lagunita's brews all weekend. BIG congrats to our co-founder, Theresa, who recently launched her pint-sized Chuglette! Plan to see this adorable bar all over the map this upcoming year.

And of course, the best thing about working at a music festival is catching a plethora of live music! We caught some epic performances from Brandi Carlile, Tank & The Bangas, Shakey Graves, along with local favorites Shovels & Rope and Susto.

We had some honest to goodness fun at High Water and can't wait to hit the road this summer for festival season! Stay tuned for some behind the scenes action at Bonnaroo in June and Forecastle Fest in July. - xoxo
