one of our fp girls was at camp bisco this past weekend, the annual disco biscuits festival in new york. her fiance does the lights for the band and she sent me some photos and video of what he did this weekend…it’s pretty amazing:

“johnny literally broke all boundaries in the lighting world this weekend!  i am still in complete awe of what this all looked like. it was the most unbelievable thing i have ever seen!”

check out a quick clip of the lights in action- i’ve never seen anything like it either:

there was an article about the festival on the cover of the new york times yesterday – check that out here.

2 day dream…

i had the opportunity to watch two bands i love – edward sharpe & the magnetic zeros and dr. dog – from the area between the stage and the crowd, and when i was able to keep myself from dancing around all over the place i managed to get some photos :)

the walkmen and yo la tengo were both fantastic, and i got to sit and chat with diane birch (pictured above) who is a really talented and sweet person, not to mention beautiful! i will have that interview here on the blog shortly but today i’m off to the festival again- dr. dog, edward shapre & the magnetic zeros and robert randolph play today,  i can’t wait!

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…

Bonnaroo Day 2 – Sweaty Hot Saturday!

Untitled-8sizedUntitled-9sizedUntitled-10sized

Wow Saturday at Bonnaroo was very VERY hot! I’m surprised I made it through :)

I did manage to snap some girls in cute outfits though.

 I quite like the style of Bonnaroo it’s not as high styling as Coachella  but hey we’re at a festival right.

I liked how girls wore florals with aztec prints and how they rocked bandeaus with their shorts.

I liked  they didn’t care if they got sweaty and passed out on the side of the dirt tacks.

I loved that they danced their hearts out under dirty water fountains and that they swung their hair around like they just don’t care.

The sweet smell of patchouli covered the air.

Bonnaroo I had fun with you
