Get ready Wayhomies, the time has finally come! This coming Friday kicks off Wayhome 2017 with some excellent artists! The artists I’m particularly excited to see this year are: Cage the Elephant, Foster the People, Flume, Vance Joy, Royal Blood, Russ, and Porter Robinson.
I do agree with most that past years lineups are better, however many of these artists I’ve never seen live before (and I probably wouldn’t buy concert tickets to specifically see a single artist from this year), so it’s still a win win, and still am very pleased with the headliners!
Tickets this year can be bought heavily discounted if you still have yet to purchase one. The artist lineup is seen as less appealing than previous years, but there are definitely great artists to see in 2017! That being said, Wayhome has been giving out a lot of free tickets through various sponsors, and many people have gone and posted discounted tickets on sites like StubHub and Kijiji. Single day tickets are going as low as $60, while 3 day GA tickets seem to be selling anywhere from $150-250.
Currently on Wayhome’s website, single day tickets are selling for $109.99 plus taxes and fees, and 3 day GA selling for $249.99 plus taxes and fees. VIP tickets are still available as well with various perks and benefits!
Remember to be weary about buying online tickets! There are many scammers and fakes floating around!
Trust me… camping is a must have and is essential to make your Wayhome trip a great one! Wayhome provides a few options including RV campsite, so I’d definitely urge you to buy a spot with friends to get the full experience!

Saturday’s sundown at EA 2017
One week has passed since the closing set of Zeds Dead last Sunday night. The music was loud, the sun was shining, and the artists were insane! Ever After 2017 was seen as a major success this year in my books, and they really brought a lot to the table in terms of providing a properly organized music festival!
- Overall look and feel was improved substantially from previous years
- Artists did not disappoint
- Weather was awesome, no rain
- Security staff was friendly to festival goers (not power tripping)
- Free Midway games and rides (not too bad of lines!)
- Fast drink lines
My recommendations for EA for things to improve on for 2018:
- Put the water fill stations on concrete to avoid creating a muddy mess!
- Stock additional beverages! EA ran out of a lot of alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks towards the end of the day
- Allow attendees to preload cash for drink/food purchases
- Serve alcoholic beverages past 9:30pm….!
All that being said, the Ever After organizers did an amazing job this year and seem to have given themselves a better bran image compared to previous years. I’m DEFINITELY looking forward to next year! 🙂
