The 4th annual Waynestock hit record numbers this weekend.

With nearly 1,000 people on the grounds this weekend, Waynestock 4 brought excellent talent to the venue that keeps growing by the year.

"Over the course of the weekend, even though our attendance is based on our capacity, is approximately 600 and some; We've probably seen a couple thousand people come through on all three days for sure," explained Last Chance Saloon Manager, Paula Sutherland.

"We had a couple of big names," said Jhett Douglas, Waynestock stage manager. "Amy Bishop, The Wardens and Electric Audrey. Those people had the crowd going. It was a great party a great place to be (and) just totally fun all around."

Sutherland commented that Saturday night was Waynestock's busiest evening as the grounds were at full capacity.paula1Festival Organizers David Arsenahault, Paula Sutherland and Jhett Douglass

"The caliber of talent just keeps increasing and increasing," said Sutherland. "If it wasn't for the musicians and visitors, this wouldn't be growing leaps and bounds as it is."

As successful as festival organizers were with this years Waynestock, Sutherland added that they do intend to give back to a cause that means something to the venue as well as a society that helped throughout the weekend activities.

"We always have a charity component attached to the music festival. This year we worked with the Humane Society. We are very grateful and thankful to many of the volunteers who came out to donate their time. If it wasn't for them, we would've had to have worked that much harder so we are quite grateful to the Humane Society."
