Baltimore celebrates new music festival

Friday - 8/22/2014, 8:46am  ET

DARLINGTON, Md. (AP) -- Baltimore's indie music, art and theater scene is packing up and heading to the woods.

The first-ever Fields Festival is three days of camping and music at Camp Ramblewood in Darlington, beginning Friday. The festival features some of Baltimore's most beloved underground artists and musicians, such as Dan Deacon, Matmos and Flock of Dimes.

Campers can also look forward to comedy shows, art installations and dance performances on multiple stages across the campground, which is equipped with a pool, a ropes course and cabins for those city slickers less inclined to pitch a tent.

The festival's co-organizers, Amanda Schmidt and Stewart Mostofsky, say some are calling Fields, "Whartscape in the Woods" -- a nod to the weird, quirky, now-defunct festival co-organized by Deacon.
