A Journey Through Boredomfest

Morning til well.. morning we experience the warmth provided from Boredomfest and it's attendants. The one day festival went above and beyond to exterminate negativity and stress among hundreds of others. Although some names didn't stand out at first, their talent did. With impressive sets from just about every performer, we can't wait to see what next year is to bring!

Our day started with a metal band that goes by SALIGIA. The energy behind this set was beyond belief and the crowd was sure to let that be known! The never ending load in revealed a 5 person band with 2 guitarist, a bassist, a drummer and a lead vocalist. After quickly organizing themselves, they were ready to go. Starting off with a mesmerizing guitar rift, there was no questioning the avid attention presented. As any following act would, A good friend known as ZACH scurried to put together a ground breaking performance to bring people back to stable ground.

While only some could bare the heat, we traveled to the main stage to see what we could find and turns out sexy pinatas are what's in. What at first appeared to be a metal structure, it was later discovered that this structure is wooden and very permeant! Providing the perfect summer day music was upcoming artist GDLK and the setting was perfect. Watching festival goers roll through the gate as early birds took in all there was to offer was surely a site to see. 
Heading back to the Ikonic Stage it was a nice change to hear some more relaxing music from the great list of bands provided. Once the Anarchrist Funk Brothers came to the stage, it was time for the vibes to set in! With a great flow of musical energy, these four were able to pack the barn with the echoes of the jazz sax.

Calvin Hobbes set was filled with tension and energy.  While it's hard to create a unique set, Calvin left the audience baffled with a bone chilling selection of songs and creative transitions that illuminated the farm.  His originals became overwhelmingly climactic as he laced them perfectly with complementary songs in this surprising set.  Every song was unexpected, yet welcomed with open arms by an audience that couldn't get enough.

Being our first Run DMT show, it was time to release some built up energy. Jumping from song to song, the intensity rose with every change and the crowd made sure to make that known. It was pleasing to hear tracks come from all eras of his career as well as some to come. Most artists just blare the same tracks, but this set was personalized for the party goers of the night.

Stepping into the barn after his headlining set, Run DMT brought out his alter ego PPLPRSN and let me tell you.. Some of the tracks coming of out that set we're straight out of a spaceship. While looking forward to new music from both personas, they both sit in very different places. 

With another year in sight, we hope to be apart of everything Boredomfest! Although we wish we could have explored a few days longer, this one day festival was beyond belief and brought new aspects to camping festivals throughout the nation. We'd like to thank our friends at Forward Momentum Productions, Prolux Entertainment, Elderberry Farms & those we have yet to meet.   

See you next year Boredomfest :)
