Riptide Was a Slam Dunk

Day 1 of 104.3 The Shark’s annual Riptide Music Festival brought acts such as Portugal. The Man, Saint Motel, Barns Courtney, Weezer, PVRIS and Cage The Elephant. It’s been a while since I’ve seen Cage The Elephant and the newly Grammy-nominated boys of Portugal. The Man so you can just imagine how happy I was to see them both in South Florida!

My day started off strong with The Academic and Barns Courtney (who is a great friend of mine and an absolute genius on stage) before I headed off to photograph the rest of the acts. After Portugal. The Man got off the stage, I ran into the boys as they were heading down the backstairs and I got to talk to them both for about 30-minutes. We talked about our obsession for film photography and Zac gave me a few rolls of film to have and use.

From taking selfies with the octopus sculpture in the sand to seeing my favorite local and well-known artists perform, Riptide Music Festival was a HUGE success and I cant wait to see who 104.3 The Shark books for next year! Here are some of my favorite pictures:
