Another year of fantastic friends and music is the best way to wrap up how much we enjoyed Weatherstock this year. The bands were all excellent and I loved how they all approached Weatherstock with their own particular style.
I didn’t hear what the final tally of players that attended this year but it is reported on the forums as “about 500 people, 1 chicken and 1 horse”. It certainly seemed larger than last year from my perspective. For example, this is what my screen looked like if I turned names on.
A big kudos definitely goes out to the Lonely Mountain Band and all who helped organize this amazing event. I will say with certainly the small editions they added such as a transition band really did helped keep the flow of the event going. I really enjoyed the flow and can’t imagine how much work must have been put in to make it all happen.
Of course I cannot talk about Weatherstock without at least mentioning the awesome new theme song created by Aegthil called “Weatherstock Forever”. I’ve been humming ever since. Download your copy of “Weatherstock Forever” here!
As for the results of the Battle of the Band contests being held, here are the winners!

While we did broadcast the whole event live on Middle-earth Radio, we did not record the event for podcasting so I do apologize if this is something you were hoping for.
