In addition to the professional bands, many of the 4,000 plus people who attend are musicians themselves. They will bring their instruments and join in the many impromptu jam sessions that go on day and night in the campgrounds.  If you're interested in getting involved as a musician, instructional camps are held in the days prior to the festival.
