Lavender tapestries greeted my best friend Barkha and I at the entranceway to . The scene was one I imagined to be except minus the forest, add the beach and Chicago skyline. Henna in your peripheral vision and yoga mats aligned on the right, activity tents welcomed us; all extracurriculars were free. Grabbing Barkhaâs hand, we coasted past the Silent Disco to booth. Red blend, rosÃ©, pinot grigio and moscato kissed our lips as we took a sip out the stackable wine cups for purchase. Buzzed and starving, inhaling billowy whole wheat veggie bun took precedence.
Trekking stage to stage across a sea sand, wearing ill-fitted flip flops, was quite the challenge. A hemp-straw safari hat rested atop Rauryâs hip-hop/folk-filled head. St acoustic guitar strums escorted his emotive voice amid â.â
Samantha Gongolâs black thigh high boots and blonde ballet bun accessorized slinky sound. âI got this thing, gonna tie your tongueâ belted out Gongol. âStep in my ring. Youâll be out round one.â She gleefully skipped across Mambyâs Beach Stage during Steve Davitâs saxophone solo while performing their assertive 2015 anthem â.â
Charlie and The Chocolate Factoryâs âPure Imaginationâ opened sugary set. Singer Mandy Lee courted fiancÃ© and bandmate Etienne Bowler with her indie pop mating call âDrummer Boy.â
The Mixmag Stageâs delivered feel-good Detroit house below the gigantuan LED walls draped in kaleidoscope visuals. I was entranced by his ficial remix Diplo & Sleepy Tomâs â.â
As spun Disclosureâs â,â a live violinist stepped in, front and center; while the bowâs hair glided across his instrumentâs G-D-A-E strings, sunbathers grew misty-eyed.
One brunette, jean-jacket-wearing babe in particular, caught the corner my eye as her glossy lips traced the vocal sample word âaddictionâ during âs closing set. Alvarezâs intuitive beat blending techniques and playful body bopping, engaged Silent Disco participants.
