Wakarusa Music Festival

Wakarusa is a four-day music and camping festival with roots in Lawrence, Kansas. From its inception in 2004, we launched a new website every year. When the festival moved to the Ozark National Forest in 2009 and two other festivals were added to the location in 2010, the timing coincided perfectly with WordPress’ launch of Custom Post Types which were used for the Artist Lineup, Stage Schedule and other content. We developed a WordPress Multisite to manage content for 3 festivals and over 20 website editors.

Home Page

The highly versatile home page enables the constantly evolving festival to promote new festival events, features, contests, sponsors and other content quickly.
