As August steadily approaches, the anticipation begins to build. There’s a particular resonance in the air, a distinct harmony, that comes but once a year. It’s a call to music lovers, adventure seekers, and those yearning for a sublime communion with the beauty of the outdoors. It’s the call of the Summer Oasis Music Festival, the brainchild of Cedric McDougle, a producer whose love for music and nature inspired the creation of an immersive glamping experience unlike any other.
Nestled in the historic enclave of Idlewild, Michigan, the festival exudes a spirit of unity and freedom, echoing the town’s rich African-American history. This hallowed ground was the bedrock for the festival’s inception. As McDougle reminds us, “We can learn so much from the struggles and successes of our ancestors. I feel their spirits leading us to reclaim and maintain our presence in Idlewild. It’s our legacy. It’s our right. It’s our responsibility!”
McDougle’s vision extends beyond mere musical entertainment; it serves as a testament to his life’s journey and dedication. Having transformed his passion into his life’s purpose, McDougle has striven to reshape long-held perceptions of camping and outdoor experiences. The term ‘glamping’ encapsulates the festival’s essence; it is glamorous, luxurious camping at its finest, a chance for people to step outside their ordinary routines and experience a new reality.
Specializing in carefully curated outdoor experiences, the Summer Oasis Music Festival steps out of the regular concert lineup, promising a deeper, more transformative interaction with the elements and music. McDougle doesn’t merely deliver a product; he carefully designs an experience that surpasses conventional expectations. His philosophy is to touch lives through these experiences, thereby distinguishing his festival from typical, run-of-the-mill music events.
McDougle’s words inspire as much as they enlighten: “Endeavor to conduct yourself in a manner in which others will be proud to follow. And strive to grow into your Divine purpose. Why? Because purpose defines your life.” He propounds that success is more than material wealth; it’s about being able to positively impact someone’s life through your actions and serving others.
With an ambitious vision for the future, McDougle is set to take the festival’s unique blend of music and nature to new heights. His goal is to shine a light on historically Black-owned campsites, bringing the music festival there to rejuvenate them, much as he has done with Idlewild, Michigan. McDougle’s ultimate aspiration is to organize four such festivals per year, each corresponding with a season, infusing life, energy, and prosperity into these historic locations.
Slated for August 18-20, 2023, the Summer Oasis Music Festival promises an immersive musical glamping experience that harmonizes music and camping in an upscale environment. For three days, attendees from all over transform the serene landscape into an elaborate and comfortable living space.
