What? Yes, in case you hadn’t heard Emerson Drive has been added to replace the unfortunate loss of Little Big Town.

St. Vincent WayHome Art and Music Festival-

St. Vincent at WayHome 2015 [Photo Review]

WayHome Day 2 St. Vincent I’d never heard of St. Vincent before the WayHome artist line up was released and I’m ashamed to say I didn’t do a lot of research even though she was playing the main WayHome stage. There were so many things to do to prepare. Shame on me. Let’s say, if hindsight […]

Vance Joy WayHome Art and Music Festival

Fire and the Flood: Vance Joy at WayHome 2015

From the first WayHome artist lineup announcement, Vance Joy was sitting at the top of my list. There was something about him, something sweet and charming, authentic and compelling. Ok, at least I thought there was based on his videos. It never occurred to me that it wouldn’t translate in real life and I wasn’t […]

Walk The Moon WayHome Art and Music Festival

Shut Up and Dance: Walk the Moon at WayHome 2015

“It’s our job to make sure you have a good fucking time. Are you having a nice time?” It was a nice gesture, and it got a pop from the crowd, but everyone at the WayBold stage on Sunday evening had already made it clear that they were good before Walk the Moon asked the […]

Kendrick Lamar WayHome Art and Music Festival-9324-2

Alright: Kendrick Lamar at WayHome 2015

To be completely honest with you, I went into Saturday night knowing that I was 100% unprepared for Kendrick Lamar. I was right. The sun was down as somewhere around 30,000 people were stretched from the stage as far back as they needed to be – and when the lights came up on the stage […]

Hozier WayHome Arts and Music Festival

Hozier at WayHome 2015: Take Me to Church
