A post shared by M I D D L E W A V E S (@middlewaves) on Sep 15, 2016 at 10:45am PDT Middle Waves Music Festival turns up the volume and the good vibes this Friday and Saturday, September 15th and 16th at Headwaters Park. This second annual festival offers plenty of events to get hyped about. If you’re still on the fence about attending, check out our 5 can’t-miss reasons to go to Middle Waves.   1. The Music With three stages of local and national acts, the official lineup is jam-packed with great music. Between headliner MGMT and a medley of different music, you’re guaranteed to find tunes that you vibe with.   A post shared by M I D D L E W A V E S (@middlewaves) on Aug 31, 2017 at 2:08pm PDT   2. Vibe Events Speaking of vibes, there’s oodles of activities you can participate in for free with admission thanks to the Middle Waves Vibe Tribe. Get your hair done at the Braid Bar, pick up some glitter from the Glitter Bar, take a yoga class, meet a unicorn, snap a selfie at the photo ops, or hang out in a hammock or VW Bus – and that’s just a few events put together for the Middle Waves experience.
