Fun Fun Fun Fest // Day One

 By Samantha Melomo

Damn.

That’s all I can say about day one of FFF fest this year. That, and my feet hurt.

We got there around 11:30 AM, beat the insane will call line and made it just in time to catch one of our favorite local boys, Blue, The Misfit. His set was incredible as always, the beats were bangin’, the crowd was pumped and by the time “Alive” came on everyone was losing it.

 

After Blue we had some time to look around the park before our next show. We explored the vendor booths, ate some expensive festival food and watched the skate ramp until SOHN.

Then we made our way to the Black Stage to see Pallbearer and get some headbanging in.

Next we hurried back to the Blue Stage to catch SZA and Holy. Shit. It was incredible. SZA is the first woman and R&B singer to be on the Top Dawg label (known for artists like Kendrick Lamar and Schoolboy Q). I was super excited for the show and it did not disappoint.

Then we caught Lunice and Run The Jewels at the same stage, both super fun.

But possibly one of the most fun/bizarre shows was Ginuwine. The whole set was like an ongoing pickup line to all the women in the crowd. And even though he may have played more songs by other artists than his own, by the time “Pony” came on there was plenty of room in the crowds hearts and jeans.

The rest of the night we spent hopping around from show to show and caught Yelle, Death From Above 1979, Dinosaur Jr., Atmosphere, alt-J, Judas Priest and ended the night on a nice and mellow 2 Chainz show.
