Saturday at Nateva was a dream lineup for “indie” music fans, with a stacked lineup including Grizzly Bear, She & Him, and the Flaming Lips in the midst of electronic/dance acts (STS9 were wholly responsible for turning it into a proper dance party) and more reggae-based bands like John Brown’s Body and Roots of Creation.
Friday, the first full night, held some heavy hitters as well, with Austin’s Ghostland Observatory taking command of the hills with their smoke, lasers, and spastic jams — all just from two musicians. The festival is still going tonight with the Grateful Dead-bred Furthur headlining the whole shebang.
We’ll have full coverage of many of the 50 bands on the festival as well as lots of other fun (if you were there, I hope you got to enjoy the silent disco dance party as much as we did!) at HillyTown.com over the next two days.
