Nothing was mandatory or expected, we just had fun games for people to play if they wanted to. We even held a Super Soaker wet T-shirt contest that both men and women participated in.
Everyone has a different goal in mind when attending festivals, but we wanted everyone to have a blast and that's what it was all about. Why go to a festival if it's only for yourself?
When is your next festival and will you be hosting another Booty Sundae's?
Absolutely! This is going to be at every festival I attend. As long as I am there, there will be Booty Sundae's. As far as my next event, we're going to Electric Forest, Lost Lands 2018, and if Tomorrow World comes back I will definitely be there. I'll also be at Holy Ship! in January. I might even try to pull off Booty Sundae's there as well.
What was the turnout to your after-parties, and was it as anticipated?
Honestly, I didn't know what to expect. We either thought it was going to go really well, or it would flop. We made a page online to promoted it so a lot of people knew about it, but it could have been bigger. It's definitely going to be much bigger next time!
A few DJ's even stopped by for a bit. Space Jesus, Downlinks brother Dusty came by and pretended to be Downlink which was hilarious(he drew a dick on my shirt). I heard BTSM and Figure stopped by, but I can't verify those two as I was sleeping.
Did you receive any feedback from those who participated with your camp activities?
Yes. Everyone who came up to me, thanked us, and said they felt safe and welcome, and said the vibe was unlike anything they had ever seen. Even till today, I am still receiving messages thanking me and wanting to come again next time. We have received so much support. I heard about one noise complaint situation which I didn't like how it was handled, but it wasn't from anyone from our camp. It was unfortunate, but not everyone can be a phenomenal human being at all times. For the most part no one got out of line, and certainly no one officially in our crew.
One thing I was very strict on was respect. #1 respecting the women, especially with Booty Sundae's, I didn't want anyone to feel disrespected, pressured, or uncomfortable. I wanted everyone to be completely safe, and I didn't want anyone stopping by to feel disrespected. It was supposed to be for fun, and all love.
According to your post on the Lost Lands Facebook page, your camp was able to raise $2,255 for Hurricane relief. Was this in conjunction with Booty Sundae's and how was the fundraiser organized?
No. Booty Sundae's had nothing to do with the fundraiser, we did it on a totally different day. That was just us messing around and having fun.
