We bought more fried foods and a couple of thai iced teas- Josh is obsessed, he craves them so we had to get seconds. But what was really nice was that everywhere you went there was live music to enjoy whether getting food or browsing the handmade merchandise.
A lot of the bands this year at the festival are local to Seattle and we were psyched about that because we love concerts but don't know any bands yet. We left feeling like we have a great basis for bands to reference, follow, and check up on who else they play with.
Worth your time to check out some of their music!
We ate snacks and sat by the fountain listening to Campfire Ok. They were a pop indie band but with the sun shining and the grass everywhere it set the day up on a really light positive note.

Also we enjoyed Yuni in Taxco while drinking Thai iced tea
Also there was a music poster show-Flatstock of graphic designers that make awesome limited poster screen prints when bands come to Seattle. Josh and I took all their cards and really want to buy some online. We have our eye on a Decemberist poster. They are just so gorgeous, well designed, detailed, and graphic and tactile too. It was really cool to walk around and be surrounded by all of it.
Some of our favorite artists were:
check out her website! I love how she captures the attitude & mood of the band graphically. They are intelligently designed not just pretty.
Love that some are so whimsical and all the hand illustrations.
They are beautifully done and detailed. I love that some reflect not only the band but the atmosphere of where they were playing.
and they're local artists which is really awesome! I want to show you all of them. Go check them out!
And of course there was a giant color by number!
