I needed time to recover from all of the fun I had recently. My first music festival was MAD DECENT BLOCK PARTY over the weekend. Over the span of two days in a row (Saturday & Sunday) I jumped, skipped, and danced all over MCU Stadium in Coney Island. Saturday’s (which was my favorite) contained a line up of: 4B, Cashmere Cat & Trippy Turtle, Gents & Jawns, Vic Mensa, Die Antwood & Major Lazer. Everyone put on a great so from beginning to end. Cashmere Cat & Trippy Turtle had everyone on a groove train and I loooooved it. Die Antwood was full of energy with mask, backup dancers & a few butt check flashing & Vic Mensa had the crowd jumping through his whole set. But the main event of the night was Major Lazer. There were lights, smoke, ribbons, fire & of course lazers! Flags were waving, music was non-stop, shirts off, topless girls & probably a lot more I missed because I was dancing lol. Sunday’s line up consisted of :Grandtheft, Party Favor,Tyler The Creator, Knife Party & Jack U . Sadly I got there late because I needed the extra sleep partying the night before I missed a few djs but I got there for the three main events. I previously seen Tyler The Creator in December and it was amazing. Not only did he put on a great show he also but he got so many girl to show there boobs….Oh glorious Tyler I bow to you!!! Knife Party got they party started. His beats had the shufflers bring out there fancy foot work. Now Jack U (a combo of Skrillex & Diplo) shut the stadium down!!! If you were in the stands you were dancing, if you were on the floor your were dancing, even if you were behind a hot dog cart you were dancing. They pulled out all the stops, playing their classic, bringing out special guest CL singing “Dr.Pepper” and ending the night off with their recent hit taking over the air waves “Where are you now”. It was amazeballs & Mad Decent Block Party will be taking my money next year!!! I had no “official” camera so check out my phone footage Here!!! lol Enjoy 🙂
AfroPunk I missed you last year due to working at a great sleep away camp but it was 100% free then *(so I was told) low key kicks myself*. Sadly its is no longer free and I already brought tickets to a 2 day event for the summer so what am I to do??? Go to the 100% free one DUH!! Afropunk gave the lucky people who knew about it, a free preview of a little of what you can expect from the paid event & boy it was worth switching my day off. The Performers: Lion Babe, The Skins & Vintage Trouble. Lion Babe makes R&B music with a groove that make you want to jump around & sing or do a sexy dance in the mirror & sing, you get to choose. The Skins are a banging rock band from Brooklyn *SHOUT OUT TO BK* who actually performed last year at Afropunk. I actually seen them do a sound check at Sonos Studio while making a speaker. I know right a speaker….but during that moment they grabbed the attention of everyone in the room. Gladly I had my camera on my so I got a few cool pics. Now on to Vintage Trouble. I had no clue who they were but they let that be known ASAP. Their music is combo of country, rock, R&B, blues, & a hint of church. Now the lead singer TY & I had a connection. Okay I know what your thinking: LIES!!! But I wasn’t the only one who seen it. He knew I was taking pictures of him & would dead in my direction into my lens. It felt one of those movies, where at any point he was going to jump of stage (which he did), come straight to me, grab me by that back of my neck, bust out a high note into the mic while dipping me and I faint on the spot (Which didn’t happen). It was just one of those things you just have to be there for. For more pics click HERE!!!
