The Grassroots Music Festival produced some of the greatest mixed performances at Tom Hanafan’s River’s Edge Park.

The lines were packed and fans were more than eager to get by security. Once the music started bumping and people gained access to the park, the festival took a different spin.

Thousands of fans crowded the stage to catch their favorite artists – Mac Miller, Logic, Blue Oyster Cult, Kid Cudi, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Lupe Fiasco. The incredible performances warped the crowd into one continuous surge of energy. Arms were raised high and everyone danced and vibed along to the beats.

When fans plugged themselves into the music, problems  were left at the door. – Kelsey Benzel
