Ten Awesome Reasons to Road Trip to AURA Music Festival 2015

By Tracy Block

There's not much quite like AURA Music & Arts Festival. Though in its sixth incarnation, for the past three years, this celebration of all things art, sound, mind, and body has returned to Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park in Live Oak, Florida. It's a time and place where you can catch forty diverse jam acts whose styles range from the innocent and melodic to trippy and nasty. It's also a spot where folks can come together and exercise their inner yogis or buy some one-of-a-kind artwork.

The fest starts on March 6 and runs through the 8th. Whether it's camping in the woods or pimping out an RV, the AURA experience is all about what you make of it. On the fence about embarking on the trek to Northern Florida? There's all kinds of reasons you should pack up your car and cruise out, and here are ten of the finest.
