From emo-ambient metal to speaker-jumping hip-hop with a little bit of well dressed jazz and a healthy dose of Columbus’ greatest rock and roll sons squeezed in for good measure. This years Independents’ Day music line up featured a little bit for every taste and a lot to enjoy on a perfect fall day.
During my time at this years festival I was able to catch performances by Mary Lynn, The Skashank Redemption, The End of the Ocean, Path, The Quinn Essentials, Reverse the Curse, Brujas Del Sol, The Lost Revival, Watershed, Bookmobile, Miranda Sound, Flotation Walls, In Silent Movies, and R-Ring.
Apologies to the bands I wasn’t able to see, I tried to cover as many as possible but this is a festival with a lot going on. Jumping between the four stages of music, the alley of food trucks; craft stalls and restaurant booths, and helping to serve out alcohol at the Brothers Drake tent I was pretty well stretched during my 12 hours at what’s quickly becoming Columbus’ greatest Saturday.
I hope you had as much fun as I did. Enjoy the photos!
