The first act we made it into the festival for was Sun Airway, a mellow rock band who provided a good start to the day. Their performance was solid although not that impactful, but I guess that kind of goes with their mellow vibe. Nonetheless it was a good way to begin the afternoon, the crowd was light so it was easy to get a good spot and soak up the music.
Luckily though we still had one more act to go, and in many ways it was my most anticipated headlining act of the weekend because I had only seen Fleet Foxes one time before and it was only partially fulfilling. Fleet Foxes has gained a lot of popularity over just the past year or two, and you could tell as the crowd got very thick as they were about to take the stage. My vantage point was not ideal but at least I could hear the music very well. Fleet Foxes is almost a band you could enjoy even more with your eyes closed, their beautiful harmonies washing over you amidst the throngs of people. Their music has some folk elements for sure, and is definitely of the slower pace but no doubt absolutely beautiful. Best to hear it for yourself, check out the video I shot below. Then go get some of their records, great music to chill out to if you know what I mean.
