So dope. So sad I missed this Phillip K Smith III installation at High Desert Test Sites, one of my favorite art projects in one of my favorite places (Joshua Tree). Smith took an abandoned 70 year old homesteader cabin and transformed it with mirrors & LED lights to reflect the stunning desert landscape.
My top moments from #OSL:
The icing on the OSL cake was the city’s best offerings of gourmet food, wine, dessert, & beer.
Some of the festival’s art offerings
Wild Belle kicked off Friday afternoon
Yeah Yeah Yeahs on Saturday. Karen O kills it everytime; she is one of my all-time favorite performers. Can’t wait to see her again in a couple weeks at FYF!
Phoenix. They played a packed crowd despite the competition from NIN who played at the same time across the park.
The park at night.
NIN from a distance.
Camper Van Beethoven ‘Northern California Girls.’ I also loved Willie Nelson & Hall & Oates. H&O packed the main stage during the day on Sunday.
Foals set got pretty deep!
My favorite song, ‘Ya Hey.’ Vampire Weekend was a straight up party—one of my favorite sets of the weekend. I’ve seen the Foals & Vampire Weekend & Coachella & wasn’t into it, but their OSL sets rocked!
And there are just no words for how special Sir Paul was, let alone the pyrotechnics & fireworks. Lifetime! The most incredible sing along with 100k people singing ‘Hey Jude.’ No words!
