Y'all, we have some great news!
Yellow Leaf Hammocks is very excited to announce that we will be creating hammock "relaxation stations" for the South by Southwest festival in Austin, TX from March 9 - 16.
SXSW reached out to us this year to ask if we could add our signature mix of blissful relaxation + social consciousness to the 2014 festival. And we said, "HECK YEAH!"
We are VERY excited to say that hammock lounges will be popping up all over SXSW, including a backstage lounge for performers and a pop-up shop at the Renegade Craft Fair. We're packing up and heading to Austin for the week, too-- we'll sleep on floors and live off of free food samples, but we'll tell everyone we see about our vision + incredible products!
Like your favorite indie band, now you can tell everyone you were in on Yellow Leaf Hammocks before they were at SXSW.
This is an awesome opportunity for us to build buzz around our hammocks and our social mission-- we get to personally reach thousands of cool, connected new people from around the world! And we PROMISE to try to get a picture of Willie Nelson in a Yellow Leaf Hammock (guys, he's performing! yes!!).
We couldn't be happier about the progress we are making as we head into "hammock season"-- with you on our side, 2014 will be the best year yet!
Stay tuned for more awesome news! We'll be e-mailing out some festival specials, so make sure you're "on the list!"
