And We’re Live: WayHome 2015 Day 1

WayHome 2015 officially kicked off Friday with a ton of sunshine, 4 active stages filled with music, and thousands of fans wandering the grounds of Burl’s Creek Event Park.

WayHome 2015 Day 1The layout is vast, covering acres and offering shaded refuge, great sightlines, and a ton to see and do. We did our best to take a bunch of it in, but thank God we’ve got 2 more days, because there’s a lot left for us.

Shout out to The Drake for having cold brewed coffee and fancy hot dogs and fries and baked potatoes and baked beans and jalapeno corn bread and more available in the VIP – we enjoyed every bite and sip.

And high five to WayHome for having water filling stations available in VIP and on the grounds. It was hot and we went through a whole lot of H2O.

Sadly we don’t have pictures and notes on all of the music from Friday (there was just too much). But we do have these shareables from Thousand Foot Krutch, Bear Mountain, and For Esmé. Check it out and stay tuned for more coming soon…

Thousand Foot Krutch

Thousand Foot Krutch WayHome Art and Music Festival-8001In the hot afternoon sun, on the WayHome main stage, these boys from Peterborough put on a loud show that had no shortage of energy from second they plugged in.

With tracks like Give It To Me the 5 time Juno nominees (Contemporary Christian/Gospel Album of the year) urged the crowd to get into the fun, dancing and jumping and screaming along.

Note: I love that this is a Christian rock band and the lead singer was wearing a Born This Way t-shirt. That works for me.

Bear Mountain

Bear Moutain WayHome Art and Music Festival-8111On the WayAway stage, tucked in behind the trees, where circles of like-minded folks sat to share a joint or two, Bear Mountain took the stage at 3:30ish and were an instant party starter.

The Vancouver electric pop rock band were a lot of fun, with hand claps for the crowd, very danceable songs, and they really looked like they were having fun – which is always a bonus to see.

Note: The lead singer has an awesome beard. And a voice that I wasn’t expecting. Check them out to see what I mean.

This was a quality dance party Friday set. Bear Mountain should be very happy with themselves, and the fans should be very happy they got to play along with the band.

For Esmé

For Esme-8214From down the highway in Toronto, these 3 musicians took the WayBold stage in the late afternoon and put on a show. With the shade of the tented stage providing a comfortable environment, Martha Meredith, Dave Thiel, and Nathan Crook brought their “artpop adventure” to life.

The trio received a nice pop from the crowd when they took the stage, and they earned that and more with their set. With tracks like You (keep and eye on Much Music for the new video) the band played to both current fans, and the ones who were meeting them for the first time.

Note: High Five to Martha Meredith for having a lot of fun up on stage in her adorable 1 piece outfit. She dances like she’s living the music every single moment of the show. We dig it!
