Road Trip Overview: Highlights of OtterTour 2015

Read Article


It’s hard to believe, but we’re almost halfway through the 2015 OtterTour! It has been an absolute blast going from state to state this summer, and hanging out with all of you at these summertime festivals!

If you had the chance to stop by the OtterTour truck, we hope it was one of the highlights of your festival-going experience. If you haven’t had the chance, don’t worry, there are still plenty of opportunities! For a full list of where we’re heading for the second half of the OtterTour, check this out:

We want you to come and rock with us!


To celebrate the first half of the OtterTour, here are some of our favorite highlights so far:




Rain at Rocklahoma


On one of our first stops at Rocklahoma, the conditions were wet. It rained and then kept raining, and raining, and raining — and then it rained some more. It turned the OtterTour tent into muddy mayhem. And it was awesome! People still stopped by and had the time of their lives, not letting Mother Nature rule the day. Rain or shine, we still rock on!


Camping at Wakarusa


On Mulberry Mountain in Ozark, Arkansas, Wakarusa is one of the most beautiful festivals out there. Camping on the mountain is a life-changing experience that you share with thousands upon thousands of new friends. Not to mention, being able to see The Roots, Ben Harper and Major Lazer all in the same weekend!




Florida Georgia Line at Summerfest


What good is summer without seeing a country concert? We got to see one of the most popular acts in all of Nashville at this year’s Summerfest — Florida Georgia Line — and at one of the best festival venues across the land to boot: Marcus Amphitheater.



Kendrick Lamar at Summerfest


Going a complete 180 from Florida Georgia Line, we were also able to see one of the most respected names in hip-hop at Summerfest, rap artist Kendrick Lamar. And let me tell you something, that dude can perform!





Oceanfront at the Newport Folk Festival


I didn’t think we were going to see a festival that was as beautiful as Wakarusa, but holy cow, the Newport Folk Festival is something else. It’s situated at the mouth of Newport Harbor, with gorgeous views of the Newport Bridge and East Passage. If you’ve never been, you owe it to yourself to go!



Through all of our travels across this great nation this summer, we haven’t missed a single thing because of our Resurgence power cases. They give us 2x the battery life so we never miss a sweet photo or a concert set list. Make sure you don’t either, and pick up your own Resurgence case on!
