Woodsist Festival: Thee Oh Sees, Real Estate, Fresh and Onlys

Mark your calendar: on August 4-5th, 2012, you’ll be able to escape to the woodsy reaches of Big Sur, California for one of the most intimate and tucked-away music festivals of the year. Thee Oh Sees, Real Estate and Fresh and Onlys will headline the 2012 Woodsist Festival, a two-day music and camping engagement at the Henry Miller Library (which sports the extra-perfect tagline: “Where nothing happens…”).

Tickets go on sale Fri. Mar. 9 at Noon PST at folkyeah.com – no word yet on the price, but for a ballpark reference, two-day passes went for $40 last year. Not too shabby for a weekend getaway.
