Twas The Greatest Day!

My journey to foreign territory aka the Bronx in search of The Greatest Day Ever and I shall say it definitely lived up to its name. DAY 1: To my surprise it really that bad of a travel to get to the festival. Although it took 2 hours it was totally worth it. Once though the gates you were greeted with the site of carival rides, beautiful people and bass thumping music. The line up consisted of Tropkillaz, Westside Gunn & Conway the Machine, They. , Dj Esco, Kyle, Anna Lunoe, Mr. Carmack, Bro Safari and Dillion Francis. I miss half of Tropkillaz set because of travel but was I did catch was pretty good. Westside Gunn & Conway the Machine gave us some hip hop. 20170715_173943They. were awesome. Dante & Drew’s performance was just as hype as their videos. DJ Esco had the crowded turned ALL THR WAY UP! There was not one body that wasnt moving during his set. By this time I made my way up close to the front for Kyle. He never disappoints. He and Super Duper Brick were so energetic. They busted out some dance moves from the 90’s and giving nothing but Super Duper show.20170715_194840(0) Next up was Anna Loune. Droves of people began to pour in as they set up for her set. I had never heard her play before and she was beyond everything I expected. Words truly can’t described how in Aww I was of her and on top of giving the crowd 1000% she did it 7 months pregnant. That was just the cherry on top of the sundae for me. After the amazing Anna was done I went to some grub. With the amount of jumping around I was doing I needed to refuel. Snack of choice: Loaded Tots *drools*.20170715_185913 With the line being so long and how slow I was eating *savoring every piece of bacon* by the time I got back inside Bro Safari was providing the tunes. Whoever is sidekick was that was dancing on stage for him was hilarious. They definitely got the crowd up and on their feet in preparation for one of my  new faves Dillion Francis.20170716_001421_011_01 I immediately fall in luv with him one year ago when he opened his set playing the Pokémon theme song * he knows his was to a girls heart*. Of course he was blessed us with greatness and gave the crowd a lil 00s throw back tunes. It truly was great way to end the night. DAY 2: I made the trek back to the BX thinking I was late because i got there at 4:15pm and I was just a little bit but it started at 4pm. The line up consisted of: Fight Club, Tunji Ige, Tokimonsta, Green Velvet, Gold Link, The Internet, Post Malone, What So Not and the main attraction Diplo. I caught was was left of Fight Clubs set then decided I would get on some of the rides. Ya gotta take full advantage of all the was given. There was the calm Ferris Wheel, the Zipper which would be recommended to ride on a empty stomach, Himalaya and Alien Invasion.20170715_232755 When I was done Tokimonsta was starting to play. She is one of those artist I like to put on my Groove Train list. She takes ya on a ride. Nothing too hard but nothing soft or mellow but pure groovy baby. Green Velevt kinda put you in a trance. So much so that a spin the bottle dance circle started. If the top points to you, ya get in the circle in show your moves. When he stopped playing we all looked up in confusion like “Damn that was it? Why he stop?”.20170716_192550 Gold Link made me become a fan on the spot. His vibe, his clothing of choice, and his lyric pulled me in. It was one of those moments when I thought “Damnit! I should have Googled him before so I knew the words to his songs”.20170716_195935 I felt so left out with everyone singing along but trust I’ll know them for next time. I was super hype when The Internet took the stage. The group recently all did solo project and I hoped they’d sing a song from those albums and they sure did.  Both Syd & Steve Lacey performanced songs off their project and it made me so happy.20170716_205754 After they finished I went to get some food and sit for a bit so I missed Post Malones performance. I needed that refresher because What So Not got the wharehouse bumping. I danced so much I almost couldn’t catch my breath. They were awesome. Glady right after What So Not finished, there was no time wasted getting Dilpo to the stage. 20170723_101544He never lets ya down. My shirt was fully socked with sweat by the time he was done. Luckily I brought another one for back up. If this was the replace or a hold over for Mad Decent Block Party, I ain’t mad at it. I defiantly had a great time even thought it was so far I’d travel back for another round of The Greatest Day Ever.

Being Decent At The Block Party Gone Mad

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 🙂
