It felt twice as crowded as it was last year, because it was. Last year was their first year and we loved how it was easy to get a seat and you never had to stand in line. This year it was sold out! But despite being more crowded, it still didn't feel overly busy: the lines weren't too bad and we needed all the people to keep everyone warm! The only downside of this year's festival was for sure the weather - it was cold and damp. Fortunately, that didn't take away from the wonderful music!
Deep Dark Woods: Harmonious twang as usual. I'd love them more if the lead singer starting acting like he was having fun out there though.
Mike Plume Band: I love his Fools for the Radio album and was so excited to see him live! Always good tunes.
Danny Michel and The Garifuna Collective: The highlight of my festival! So happy! So uplifting!
Danny Michel and The Garifuna Collective: Yes, he's playing turtles, and yes, he's playing a jaw bone.
Seriously, go buy their Blackbirds Are Dancing Over Me album - so awesome! Here's a short video I took, just a fraction of how lovely it was!
Can you spot Jim Cuddy?
Sarah Harmer: Lovely as usual!
Shout Out Out Out Out: Definitely a band to experience live!
All-Stars with Danny Michel, Jim Cuddy and QuiQue Escamilla: My second favourite session of the year - so fun!
Skydiggers: The lead singer totally reminded me of the lead singer from Oysterband!
Elliott Brood: As usually it was a rockin' good metal banjo-y chair dancing yelling time! My third favourite!
Steve Earle and The Dukes: He makes even me feel nostalgic for the good ol' days!
I really enjoyed Interstellar Rodeo this year. The music was awesome, the food was tasty, and best of all I got to hang out with really nice people! I can't wait until next year!
