This year’s line up was very interesting to say the least. A lot of firsts and new things were introduced to the festival which kept the three year old festival a new twist. This year, the Wandeland Festival was headlined by acts Hale, Youngblood Hawke, Lewis Watson, The Jungle Giants, Augustana, RAC, and Kid Cudi.
Augustana, the American rock band from California was when people were really starting to get off their mats and beanbags. Handkerchiefs in their hands trying not to cry through the high school heartbreak and nostalgia, the crowd sang along and knew every single word when they played their biggest hit to date, “Boston”.
As mentioned earlier as well, this year featured a smaller stage for local independent acts. Situated conveniently next to the main stage, festivalgoers were able to walk just a few easy steps from one act to the next. It was refreshing to see that Wanderland’s crowd didn’t just come for the foreign acts. Drawing a good crowd to watch them play were dj and producer CRWN and the ever so lovely Jess Connelly. CRWN’s funky beats and Jess Connelly’s silky voice was the love team of the night. The crowd went crazy to their most popular song to date “Under Blankets”.
