I've been to a dozen different festivals, but never Wakarusa. I love the lineup, which is the most important part, but want to be sold on the rest of the festival. To those that have been before, try to sell it to me.
Dude... Go. It's such a laid-back atmosphere, in a beautiful setting. I hate to use the "v" word, but the vibe is unreal at Wakarusa. Spirits are absolutely soaring the whole time, and every set is a dance party. Even the mid-afternoon bluegrass sets will have tons of people getting down.
One cool thing about Waka that they introduced last year is the 24/7 music. Once the music starts on Thursday, it never stops until the last band plays on Sunday. They'll have bands play all day, usually make the switch to more electronic-themed late nights (with a few exceptions, of course), and keep the late nights going through sunrise. Once the sun rises, they have singer-songwriters play for a few hours until the bands start back up at noon. There's always something to see.
Also, if you like glow toys, Waka is the place to be.
I mean I wouldn't use that to describe Bonnaroo...
Edit: I suppose you're right though, as far as smaller festivals go. It's easier to achieve that sort of communal, family type bond with a smaller amount of people. It really feels special at Wakarusa though. I just can't explain it.

The phish kid was cool but the bus driver scream oh hells Naw and praying cuz the brakes were bur ing was sketch. But honestly Waka is amazing. It's a beautiful setting, there's a river to swim in and cool off. Security is super chill. Everyone is happy. Just a bunch of people existing together with no problems. And no mounted police men.
The fishing is equal distance between the woods and mainstage. You have to cross the highway to get to the fishing and music area. Plus you only need one pass for a car so whoever you go with, you can split the cost. Plus it would be nice to listen to music from your camp.
*i like coconuts, you can break them open they smell like ladies lyin in the sun** *Hell I don't even know where I am** *for now I must sit here and ponder the yonder: The herbivores did well cause their food didn't never run** *We listen, if it feels good We shake** *You made a big impression for a girl of your size, Now I can't get by without you and your big brown eyes.**
What you got back home, little sister, to play your fuzzy warbles on? I bet you got little save pitiful, portable picnic players. Come with uncle and hear all proper! Hear angel trumpets and devil trombones. You are invited.
