Do it for the kids! The music world has festivals for every walk of life from hipsters to metalheads so…why not the kids? The fine folks at Life is good decided to give it a try and gave Boston a brand new festival to hopefully look forward to for years to come. The two day event kicked off on September 11-12 and raised over $600,00 for the Life is good Kids Foundation while offering up the most eclectic two day gathering of bands, performers and artists alike to deliver positive vibes all around. The good karma runneth over!
Proving that mixing family and fun doesn’t have to be a recipe for bland the festival brought out some of the best from the music world while keeping the kids fully involved with their own tent and kid oriented entertainment. From a musical perspective, the festival brought out the best of the best from all genres – from the headliners – Jason Mraz and Ben Harper, to the local favorite Will Dailey & The Rivals and Grace Potter & The Nocturnals to one of our personal favorites here at TWRY –OK Go, as cliché as it sounds, there really was a little something for everyone.
Taking place on the grounds of Prowse Farm in Canton, MA, it seemed to be a perfect and picturesque locale for the event giving the 30,00 people who attended a chance to check out everything Life is good had to offer. Proving that truly Life is good we’re already looking forward to next year!
TWRY photographer Dave Barnum was onsite to catch the sights and sounds of the festival. Check out his galleries to get your own dose of the warm fuzzy feeling that Life is good induces!
This weekend will mark the inagural year of Boston’s “Life Is Good Festival”. The two day event will be held at Prowse Farm in Canton, MA and hopefully will become an anual event. The two days will be jam packed with national headlining artists like Jason Mraz, Ben Harper & Relentless 7, Guster, Corinne Bailey Rae, Ziggy Marley, Galactic, Ozomatli, and Mavis Staples as well as rising stars Brett Dennen, Grace Potter & the Nocturnals, Donavon Frankenreiter, OK Go, Dr. Dog, Trombone Shorty and more. Top children’s artists The Laurie Berkner Band, Dan Zanes and Friends and They Might Be Giants will join in the fun on the “Good Kids” Stage and will be joined by San Francisco’s kids-rock performers The Sippy Cups and a unique “Circus To Go!” performance by Big Apple Circus.
For those that are unable to make it to the festival, Chase Freedom, in partnership with the Life is good Festival, will be presenting a webcast of the performances at this weekend’s event. The webcast will be featured on the Chase Freedom Facebook at www.facebook.com/chasefreedom. After the festival, the page will showcase archived clips of the show.
