Saturday, May 19th & Sunday, May 20th: The Great GoogaMooga Festival – Our Music & Panel Picks

The Great GoogaMooga Festival takes over Prospect Park this weekend with approximately 75 food vendors, 35 brewers, 30 winemakers, live music performances & some pretty awesome panels. Unfortunately, all free General Admission tickets have sold out (& Extra Mooga admission is $249.50/person!!!!). However, you might have some luck looking for tickets on Craigslist or hanging out somewhere near the entrance in case someone happens to have a spare.

With so much going on & large crowds to contend with, you might want to plan out the day to get the most out of GoogaMooga’s amusements. Here are our recommendations for bands to listen to & panels to sit in on while you’re not busy drinking & stuffing your face:

PS: Check back tomorrow for our food & drink picks.
