Last year the grounds were covered with mud on the final day. Will we avoid the rain this year?
I should preface this post with a big caveat. Always, always, ALWAYS prepare for the worst weather at Cornerstone Festival. It will rain, so bring shoes you don’t mind getting muddy and possibly ruined. Bring ponchos so you aren’t miserable and wet the entire day. Bring plenty of socks so you don’t have wet feet all week. Bring tarps and covers for your tents so all of your stuff isn’t ruined. It will be dusty if it doesn’t rain. It can be choking if it doesn’t rain at all, so if you have respiration problems, be prepared. It will be hot. Bring sunscreen, you will be sunburnt if you are not careful. Drink plenty of water and stay cool. Don’t use up all your energy perfecting your roundhouse kick at the hardcore shows the first day so that you are dead tired on the last day. It will be cold. In the evenings, it can get downright chilly. Bring something to wear in the evenings. Bring appropriate gear to sleep in.
Now, having said all that, checking various weather sites it looks like the weather is going to be incredible for the week of Cornerstone Festival! So far the predictions seem to be in the mid 80′s for highs and 60s – 70s for lows (some nights as low as the high 50s!) so be prepared. The chance of rain looks small, but never count on it not raining at Conerstone.
Now, I know there have been some legendary times at Cornerstone in inclement weather. Do you have any memorable times at Cornerstone in the rain, heat, or cold? It was fun and all watching the kids slide around in the mud last year and of course, moving the Underoath and The Devil Wears Prada shows to the Gallery tent was epic. I’ve been to Cornerstone under all conditions. However, I prefer a nice, sunny, days with low temperatures and cool evenings. Keep your fingers crossed because we *might* get that this year.
…and if we don’t, please don’t flood this post with hate comments directed at me for jinxing it. Just a little while more now before the fun begins!
