TODD MISSION, Texas – Each of the 66,000 who attended the Middlelands music and camping festival last weekend got to experience four magical days of revelry and adventure at the Texas Renaissance Festival Fair Grounds.

The 200+ acre festival boasted warriors, queens, fairies and goblins, futuristic castles played sounds from 150 artists and guests got to hone their jousting and archery skills as they feasted on turkey legs.

The presenters of the festival, Insomniac and C3, unveiled five never-before-seen stages that included the roaming Wench’s Bay Art Car, Trinity Vale, the Stronghold, Middlelands Arena and Castle Northwoods.

Castle Northwoods stretched 200 feet wide and nearly 100 feet tall as 23 pillars of fire, 800 video tiles and 24 laser light beams radiated across the nearby forest.

Performers at the event included Major Lazer, Phantogram, Marshmello, Bassnectar, GRiZ, Rae Sremmurd and Kristian Nairn.

Those in attendance worked to spread positive change and self-expressions throughout the weekend with charitable initiatives.

Earth Emporium gave fans prizes for recycling while the sober support collective, Consciousness Group, opened their doors and #OpenTalk provided a safe space of learning for fans.

The festival's 21st edition of Electric Daisy Carnival makes its next stop in Las Vegas, Nevada, from June 16-18.
