Here are a few clips, pics and snippets from a few weekends ago – stroll down memory lane with us as we reminisce and anxiously count down ‘til #EF2016.
The String Cheese Incident played a 3.5 hour set…and we loved every second of it. Arial acrobatics from a hot air balloon, blimp drones, confetti, oversized beachballs – we’re all about it.
Macy Gray throws back to a classic, revamped with Galactic and a grooving crowd. Excuse us as we get transported back to yesteryear and sing along.
Lindsey Stirling goes from YouTube sweetheart to rocking a packed set while fiddling w/ our hearts.
