Theme of LeeFest 2016: The Neverland
The Three Tribes of LeeFest
The LeeFest Orgin Story
Taking it Old School
The Great Water Balloon Fight of 2016
While most of the weekend saw the tribes intermingling peacefully, an occasional battle would break out, like the Friday water balloon fight between the Lost Boys and a roving gang of pirates.
Meet a Festival Fan: The King of the Sea From Middle-Earth
“Are you the King of Mermaids?”
“No. I’m Ulmo, the King of the Sea.”
“It’s from the Lord of the Rings.”
So Many Activities
Burlesque acts. Secret shows. Dodgeball tournaments. Hot tubbing. Drag queen performances. The list of stuff to keep a festie busy at LeeFest seemed endless.
Festival Fashion: Transforming Shirts
Submotion Orchestra @ The Neverwood Stage
Favorite Festival Set: The Big Moon
The Big Moon live looks like a band that just loves playing music together. This shreddy foursome made my Saturday night with a blend of straight up indie rock mixed up with a dose of pop and plenty of sweet hooks.
Dogs of LeeFest
I haven’t been to a dog-friendly festival in forever and could not get enough of these four-legged festies.
Favorite Moment: Final Song of the Secret Show
Deep in the packed confines of Hook’s Bar, the hardcore band Frank Carter and the Rattlesnakes, capped off an amazing Saturday of music. My favorite moment came at the end when the band invited all of us up onto the stage to sing along with them. After a weekend of love and peace, screaming “I fucking hate you and I hope that you die,” felt most cathartic.
