The Booty Shakin’ Electric Factory Festival Experience

This last Saturday, 5/6/17, I attended the SOLD OUT outdoor festival at The Electric Factory in Philadelphia. A mere 6 months ago this festival wasn’t even scheduled to happen. By sheer happenstance 2 different tours were going to be in Philadelphia around the same time, Devin Townsend Project + Gojira + Opeth and Russian Circles + Eagles of Death Metal + Mastodon. Because all of the bands are friends and have mutual fan bases they decided to combine the 2 shows into 1 big festival at the Electric Factory. 6 bands, 8 hours of music, 1 stage, SOLD OUT.

This was my experience….
