“It’s really cool to be asked to play this year. We’ve been excited for this for months. We have some new ideas to try out and new songs. ¬†And, to get to try them out outdoors, on a cliff, after people have been putting who-knows-what into their bodies the night before sounds pretty ideal. Hopefully they can get out of bed in time to catch the set.”

-Alex Robert, Lead Singer of Black Whales

Whether you’re in the mood to dance or slow jam, put them on the list to fulfill all your festival endeavors.
