Las Tortugas V: Daily Schedule Themes, Adds, Camping Update


ALO's Zach Gill :: Tortugas IV
By Chad Smith
Las Tortugas – Dance of the Dead V has just announced it's day-by-day schedule. Check it out here.

Taking place October 28-31 at Evergreen Lodge in Yosemite, CA, Las Tortugas has added Five Eyed Hand, DJ No Parking on the Dance Floor, Who's DunFour (i.e. Nathan Moore and Big Light) and The Trespassers to an already rich lineup that includes headliners Yonder Mountain String Band, ALO, 7 Walkers, The Mother Hips, Tea Leaf Green and Cornmeal for more than 30 acts over four days.

One of the great pleasures of Las Tortugas is the daily pageant of costumes that attendees bust out in an elongated celebration of the Halloween spirit. This year's themes are:

Thursday, October 28 - GYPSY CIRCUS: There are many roles in a circus and many types of gypsies in the world. What is your interpretation of a Gypsy Circus? Gypsy pirates, dancers, carnies, ringmasters...the list goes on forever.

Friday, October 29 - DECADE DANCE: Represent your favorite decade in any way you like. Retro cinema, political statements, historical figures and pop culture are all fine starting points. Time is your plaything!

Saturday, October 30 - MONSTERS vs. ALIENS: Are you a monster or an alien or a monster-alien? Join your fellow species to unite, multiply, divide or whatever else it is monsters and aliens do.

Sunday, October 31 - THE MASQUERADE BALL: It's Halloween so come as you wish. Some good ideas suggested to the festival include Solid Gold, glitter & glam, midnight in the garden of good & evil, wild animal kingdom, and psychedelic superheroes. Let your imagination roam and then come freak freely with the rainbow flock!

For those that can't make the full festival, new ticketing options are now available, with 3-Day Tickets (Fri-Sun) and 2-Day Tickets (Sat-Sun) offered here.

While on-site camping has sold out, the National Forest Service has granted the festival a permit for a unique camping opportunity just steps away from Evergreen Lodge in what they are calling the Emerald Forest. This camping area was a huge success last year, and it will provide our guests with a safe and controlled camping area across the street from Evergreen Lodge. Just like on-site camping, the cost is $15 per camper per night, and there is a 3 night minimum stay required. There is also a one ticket requirement per camper (either the three night or four night ticketing options will satisfy this requirement). There is limited availability for off-site camping, so call the Lodge asap at 209/379-2606 to reserve your off site spot in the Emerald Forest.
