Directly from the Photo Pit: Common Ground Fest 2014

It’s #tbt, or for you non-millenials who are trying to figure out whose strange three-digit phone number that is, Throwback Thursday! An entire day devoted to sharing nostalgic “good ole days” photos on the world wide web for everyone’s viewing pleasure.

This week’s #tbt takes us all the way back tooooo, wait for it…. last month. July 8-13 was the 15th annual Common Ground Fest. This year’s festival invaded downtown Lansing with plenty of live beats, eats and brought it to an even higher level of energy, with zip lining over the river.

Adado Riverfront Park and thousands of patrons were graced with the presence of headlining bands including Justin Moore, Big Sean, Juicy J, Jukebox The Ghost, Fitz and the Tantrums,Brand New, Circa Survive, Say Anything, The Front Bottoms, Braid, 311, Violent Femmes,Dale Earnardt Jr Jr, The Orwells, X Ambassadors, Joe Hertler & the Rainbow Seekers, and Earth, Wind and Fire.

WLNZ 89.7 got right in the thick of it, deep in the moshing and crowdsurfing, risking our lives and lenses to bring you a glimpse of Common Ground 2014.

From the photo pit to your eyes, here it is y’all. Throwback to Lansing’s infamous Common Ground Music Fest.
