What: Pinestock Music Festival
When: September 7, 2012
Where: The Nate Norris Estate; Churubusco, Indiana
It has been almost two months exactly since Pinestock 2012, and it’s time for LxL to share the experience with the world. On September 7, 2012, Churubusco Indiana was home to not only the greatest music festival in Indiana, nor simply the greatest music festival in America, but the greatest music festival in all the world: Pinestock.

Sometimes it’s a combination of both. Some people go for the art. Some people probably just go for their friends. Teenagers go to fit in or to look like a rebel. Old farts go to feel young and seem hip. I even heard Bear Grylls showed up to film an episode of Man vs Festivals in order to properly demonstrate exactly how to drink copious amounts of alcohol in 108 degree weather without dying (I think the trick had something to do with mixing every drink with pickle juice). Personally, I only go for the Ferris wheel.
