The skies cleared and left behind a gorgeous day for festival goers. Someone defiled the FFF porta-potty photo booth. Hence, it became a feature of the skyline. The grounds recovered from the rain of the previous days; the landscaping tweaks certainly seemed to work and the layout changes prevented most potential destruction from stomping boots. I was pretty stoked for the weather change as Sunday was the most complete day of old and new, jams and oddities.
We have on tap photos from sets by Golden Dawn Arkestra, Title Fight, Alvvays, Growlers, Chromeo, Future Islands, Ms. Hill and more…

Park and Rec Strikes Back – The rains came down after the festing on Friday. There was a bit of standing water remaining and a few potential sinkholes that the city needed to be covered up by mulch before the doors could open. We were allowed in to take refuge from the gathering masses. 1:20pm, was the new start time. Early bands unfortunately did not get to perform, mainly for me I was disappointed to see A Giant Dog with the downtown backdrop. Oh well, I got to lurk during their KUTX recording session and we had quite a bit of jams to fill that void. Shots of Jane’s Addiction, Joanna Gruesome, Ride, Charlatans UK, Fuzz and more after the break…
Let’s get the photo party started. You may have already read our thoughts on the fest along with our interviews (more still coming, allegedly).
Friday, we dodged a bullet. The weather held out for the most part and we were able to stay fashionable in the face of volatile moisture levels. We all were able to dance and mill about, an occasional sprinkle to chill us out. Click through to get shots of Viet Cong, Toro Y Moi, Peaches, Parquet Courts, Cheap Trick, CHVRCHES and more.
