Sound on Sound Lowers Camping Fees

Hear ye, hear ye, the inaugural Sound on Sound Festival has slashed its camping prices. Last week the lineup and location for Sound on Sound was announced, and many who were thrilled to learn about the camping option soon had their enthusiasm zapped when the sticker price for a 3-day camping pass meant tacking on an extra $300 on top of the price for festival admission. Margin Walker (the production company behind the festival) has responded to the overwhelming negative feedback by dropping the daily camping process from $99 to $75 (plus about $12 in taxes and fees). For those who are still reluctant, but are worried about making the nearly hour-long drive, later this week Sound on Sound will be making an announcement about shuttles to the site.
