Each year River Re­vival draws in more than 500 con­scious campers, all gath­ered to par­take in a va­ri­ety of ac­tiv­i­ties geared to­wards bring­ing peo­ple to­gether for a good time. Ac­tiv­i­ties such as in­ti­mate camp­fire con­certs, hik­ing, river float­ing, ca­noe­ing, pad­dle board­ing, kayak­ing, rope swings, fish­ing, var­i­ous work­shops on rep­tile han­dling, bee­keep­ing and na­ture iden­ti­fi­ca­tion with a true mas­ter nat­u­ral­ist, live tran­scen­den­tal med­i­ta­tive mu­sic mixed with morn­ing yoga ses­sions with Christi Work­man of Hi/Lo Kick Stu­dios, kids mu­sic class and per­for­mance by AndyRoo and the Andyrooni­verse on Satur­day, fam­ily ac­tiv­i­ties and pup­pet shows and nat­u­ral live art ex­hibits by Jour­ney Through. There will also be a One-Pot Cook-Off Com­pe­ti­tion on Satur­day, where six cook­ing teams will come up with one dish that is made in one pot us­ing only one flame. The teams can cook a cold dish off-site, or on-site, but it must fit in one pot. If teams do cook on-site, they can start any time af­ter 12 p.m. on Satur­day, Sept. 30, and the dish must be ready for the campers around 6 or 7 p.m. Uten­sils will be supplied. Lastly, there will be a group float pro­vided by an out­side out­fit­ter for an ex­tra cost. It comes with tube rental, pickup and drop-off, and at­ten­dees can float back to the camp­grounds and stop at the stage as the mu­sic starts. At­ten­dees are also in­vited to float on their own through­out week­end.

River Re­vival give­aways and prizes in­clude the “Most Cre­ative Camp­site Award” and the “King & Queen Campers Awards.” The win­ners will re­ceive a prize and get crowned the

of­fi­cial king and queen of River Re­vival. It is the high­est honor and it comes with a lot of re­spect. More awards in­clude the “Should’ve Been at Wood­stock Award” where the most down-to-earth hippy soul will win. Campers seek­ing a prize are ad­vised to “come nat­u­ral, come happy and spread peace ... and you will win a prize.” Other prizes are the “Best Hat Award” and “Most Cre­ative Style Award” where at­ten­dees with cos­tumes and col­ored at­tire will win. Lastly, campers will vote on their fa­vorite dish in the One-Pot Cook-Off Com­pe­ti­tion.

“Ev­ery year we like to sign at least one blues le­gend to our lineup, bands who are on the rise, or artists who have im­pressed us on any size stage in the year lead­ing up to River Re­vival,” said Splice Records CEO Shaun Bren­nan. “This year we have added the best live band in coun­try to the bill, Pimps of Joy­time, from Brook­lyn, New York. They are a multi-genre funky mash up that I saw live for the first time three years ago at Jaz­zFest. Ever since that first show, I have fol­lowed them and seen them on ev­ery oc­ca­sion that I could. The prob­lem was that ev­ery time would re­quire me to be in New Or­leans. That trig­gered my will, and I was de­ter­mined to change that. I made it a dream of mine to be the one to bring them to Texas to have them play live at River Re­vival. The en­ergy from their live per­for­mance com­bined with their unique mix­ture of funky-soul has me pro­foundly ex­cited to an­nounce that the Pimps of Joy­time will be clos­ing the main stage and head­lin­ing this year’s fes­ti­val.”

“Fri­day night we have Grammy Award win­ner Alvin Youngblood Hart bring­ing his trio to the stage,” said Bren­nan. “He is a mu­si­cian’s mu­si­cian who has a long his­tory of in­cred­i­ble songs with a rootsy Mis­sis­sippi Delta blues sound that is unique to mod­ern mu­sic. His gui­tar and song­writ­ing will give our campers that bal­ance of mu­sic that is meant to be heard in na­ture around a camp­fire.”

“We are not try­ing to be the big­gest fes­ti­val or the loud­est, we are just try­ing to be the most fun,” says Splice Records CEO Shaun Bren­nan. “The camp­ing and the Guadalupe River are what sep­a­rates us from other fes­ti­vals. River Re­vival is so much more than a mu­sic fest, the com­bi­na­tion of the mu­sic and river is our recipe for a spe­cial week­end.”

Clean and main­tained show­ers are avail­able on-site, but they do re­quire quar­ters for op­er­a­tion. The camp­grounds pro­vide firewood and ice, and there is also a small store on site. Campers are al­lowed to bring their own sup­plies as well. Tent campers will have a re­served camp­site that will be made specif­i­cally for them. There will be a fam­ily area sec­tioned off for at­ten­dees with chil­dren. At check-in, the camp­site num­ber and itin­er­ary will be pro­vided. RV and mo­torhome spa­ces are also avail­able on a first-come-first-serve ba­sis but are very lim­ited. The 30-amp RV pre­mium camp­sites come with a one-time $95 ad­di­tional cost which can be pur­chased dur­ing the ticket check­out ex­pe­ri­ence.
