Love Fest in the Midwest

A fond and mostly photographic look back

The sixth annual Love Fest in the Midwest happened last weekend near Bellevue, no matter what rain, mud or weird temperature swings would do to get in the way.

The festival ran Thursday through Saturday, with many happy hippies taking their time to leave come Sunday. Original music and covers of jam bands like the immortal Grateful Dead played both inside and outside to a crowd that continues to grow every year Love Fest happens. There were 28 bands and workshops on everything from hula hooping to spinning fire poi to acro yoga (that is, with a partner and probably not touching the ground). There were smiles, lots of bare feet and vendors selling everything from tie dyes to homemade jewelry to falafels and gyros.

Long story short, it was a great weekend. But here’s the thing: festivals aren’t something even the most experienced festival goer can describe in words. Here are some photos to help get the point across.
