We came, we saw… we… took photos… lots of photos of happy people.
(UPDATE: Over 250 photos are up, if you were on the floor… I probably got a photo of you… Join our Facebook group to see the photos!)

This is not a blog entry about what happened (or didn’t happen) tonight at HARD Summer Festival, this is a blog entry about people showing extreme amounts of patience and trying to make the best out of a shitty situation. Massive thanks to the 90% of the fans in attendance who were very respectful of what was going on, and listened. For the 5-10% who thought it was cute to block the aisles, jump down to the floor or push/shove their way through, grow up.
I’m sure there will be a lot of terrible reviews, pissed off artists/fans and also hourly workers at HARD – all warranted. Hell, the first thing I started to write was headed that way. However, through the lens of my camera I hope you are able to remember, or discover, that there were some lovely moments that occurred. Rather than sit and be upset about the lack of music, my friend and I tried to make the best of the situation by taking photos of hundreds of people and capturing any positivity that we could.
Big shout out to Josh Woodard for helping me pass out cards, take a bunch of awesome photos and spread the good vibes through the floor tonight. If you got a card, your photo is more than likely going to be posted. Feel free to add me on Facebook as well, much love!
