The basics

Rhetorical festival in Oregon

The festival

What The Festival has it all: art installations inspired by The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, a Japanese Spaghetti Western teahouse, a silent disco (always fun), an illuminated forest and lots more. The only thing it doesn't seem to have is a DFS sale, but then, DFS seem to have that little market covered. Also, they don't have a question mark at the end, which is unsettling. 

Oregon's whackiest and perhaps best festival isn't just art and shizzle though, there's tonnes of music, with the likes of Gold Panda, Dillon Francis, Bonobo and Julio Bashmore having appeared in the past. 

If you're wondering what festival to go to next year, and you've got a bit of money burning a hole in your pocket, call the fireman to put out the fire, jump on a plane — or a really big catapult — and get yo ass to Oregon town (state) for some freaky art and music action. 

Our tip

Oregano goes very well with beef, chicken and lamb but not so much with pork — and don't even get us started on fish.
