Hey flag wavers, fireworks gazers, did you make it out to America’s Heartland for Rothbury Festival in Michigan this weekend? No? Us either. Here’s what you missed: Lots of the usual awesome festivalness like live music from headlining jamsters String Cheese Incident, The Dead(!) Bob Dylan (!) – a regular Woodstock ’09! Only this time all the dancing hippies could channel their energy through yoga! Normally we stray from the hippie/yoga stereotype, but we mean it as a compliment here – this was the only performance of The Dead at any festivals this summer, and there were morning yoga classes each day, so you know there was some serious hippie (yippie?) chic-ness.
An impressive crowd of approx. 200 yippsters crawled out of bed and gathered for the 10:30am yoga classes each morning.
Watch a video clip of the scene below, looks like fun! (note: yoga was part of 2008’s fest as well)

Did you make it out to Rothbury? We’re really digging the yoga meets music festival trend going on here. Next up, Wanderlust in Lake Tahoe at the end of this month (July 24-26). Wish we could go..boo hoo.
