Rothbury Festival goes off with a Bang!!!!

So..... Its been a few weeks since the first ever Rothbury Music Festival in Rothbury Michigan, but then again its taken me that long to recover. The festival, which spanned 4 days over July 4th weekend, included headlining acts The Dave Matthews Band, Widespread Panic, and Phil Lesh & Friends, as well as many other incredible acts such as The Disco Biscuits, 311, Modest Mouse, and a surprise 3/4 Phish Reunion on Sunday afternoon. This trip was nothing short of amazing. For a first year festival you would think they had been doing this for years. I could not tell you a show i saw that didn't amaze me. The Sound at every stage was amazing, the stages looked so cool, and there was a forest completely lit at night with black lights and other various psychedelic lighting. I could never imagine picking my favorite performance, they were all amazing, but i will never forget Sound Tribe Sector Nine performing at The Ranch late Saturday night into Sunday morning. I don't know if it was the amazing set played, the hundreds upon hundreds of glow sticks thrown, or if it was the FREAKIN FIREWORKS!! being set off from the middle of the audience, but i do know this was one show I'll never forget!!! Here is a clip i found of these shenanigans....
