is it a dream
keeping you awake
is it the stillness that makes you shake?
if you need to know for sure
what’s on the ocean’s floor
you’ll sink

Saw them at Roo, & then they happened to stop at a venue about 60 miles from my hometown a month later, priceless.

Post image for sunday funday

i thought saturday at the xpn festival would be tough to top but sunday just might have… the weather could not have been better and the bands were amazing. i was fortunate enough to have a media pass so i was able to watch the shows from a spot directly in front of the stage – i have tons of great photos to share! but for now here are some photos of the atmosphere on sunday…

we took the ferry over to camden from penn’s landing – definitely the way to go! you get some great views of the philly skyline and ben franklin bridge.

Post image for it’s all about the music

one of my favorite music festivals is taking place this weekend! the XPoNential music festival is an annual three-day festival put together by the university of pennsylvania’s public radio station, WXPN. it’s pretty much the only radio station i listen to- not because i went to school there, but because they play the BEST music. i cannot tell you how many new bands i have discovered through them. anyway this year i think they have put together their best lineup yet! here are some of the bands playing:

one
grace potter & the nocturnals; the felice brothers

two
yo la tengo; the walkmen

three
these united states; blood feathers

five
dawes; robert randolph & the family band

four
dr. dog; edward sharpe & the magnetic zeros

the festival is held at wiggins park, a really cute spot on the waterfront in camden. they have lots of local vendors, good food, good people- and the best part is how small the festival is. the first time i went i got to meet jim james from my morning jacket at the side of the stage – really exciting for me since they’re one of my favorite bands. can’t wait for this weekend! i will be taking lots of photos for the blog, so stay tuned.

and here is a playlist of songs by the bands listed above!

Post image for are you going to glasto?

one of the largest and most eagerly anticipated music festivals in the world starts tomorrow – glastonbury!  located on worthy farm in pilton, glastonbury has been going on since 1970 – the day after jimi Hendrix died, to be exact.  it has come a long way since its first year, when attendance was only 1500 and the cost of entry was one pound (which included free milk from the farm). now there are too many artists playing to even list, and tickets are extremely hard to come by – but i can see why. it is definitely on my list of festivals that i must attend at some point in my life.

it reminds me of bonnaroo but on a much bigger scale – a farm that transforms into its own bohemian world of music, dancing, laughter and lights. and maybe some mud…

two

love that last photo…those girls have the right idea!

some of the many acts playing at this year’s glastonbury: gorillaz, muse, stevie wonder, flaming lips, phoenix, the national, lcd soundsystem, mgmt, grizzly bear, black keys, mumford & sons, the xx, julian casablancas, broken social scene, mos def, george clinton with parliament, toots & the maytals, loudon wainwright III, broken bells, local natives, beach house…and many, many more. sigh.

are you going? who are you excited to see? be our eyes and ears… and feel free to send photos to blog@freepeople.com :)

top two images from the glastonbury scrapbook.
