Seeing live music can be a transcendent mind-body experience, akin to getting a tattoo underwater or making out during an eclipse. Transcend boredom with today's Groupon to the Allegreen Music Festival, running April 22–24 at Durhamtown in Union Point. Choose between the following options:
- For $17, you get a one-day pass valid Friday, April 22; Saturday, April 23; or Sunday, April 24 (a $35 value).
- For $25, you get a three-day pass valid April 22–24 (a $50 value).
The environmentally themed Allegreen's three stages showcase more than 50 performers and bands, drawing from a massive range of genres, including rock, bluegrass, hip-hop, dubstep, and more. Three stages will bustle with artists including That 1 Guy, Almost Kings, and Brock Butler of Perpetual Groove, as well as live comedians. After sating audio appetites, visitors can revel in performances by glassblowers, motorcycle stunt devils, and ill-fated glass motorcycle stunt devils. Flanking the festival's two outdoor stages will be a bevy of vendors, artist workshops, disc-golf games, and a beer garden, and the indoor stage and bar will host danceable electronica performers, providing beats to accompany dancing or rhythmic beverage consumption. Though not included with today’s Groupon, cheery ear-hole-fillers can camp, park an RV, rent one of a limited number of cabins, or annex up to 5 acres as a sovereign country in Allegreen's 6,000-acre Durhamtown digs.
