firefly photo diary

The moment I passed under the shadow of the big, white exit tent of the Woodlands, I knew I couldn't wait to be back. The expansive grounds, the smiling faces and bright lights of the Firefly Music Festival in Dover Delaware only exist for a few days a year, but they're some of the most magical days I know. This year's festival fell on the summer solstice where the sun woke me up just before seven and didn't set when you'd expect. And when the sun stays up past its bedtime, it just makes the days seem longer and more important somehow.

 I got to go on an adventure where I camped out for four days (if you're skeptical, I have the bug bites to prove it), met some pretty awesome people, and scoured the site for some Teen Vogue worthy festival fashion (time out...TEEN VOGUE BABY!) So here's to a perfect weekend of beaded tops, good vibes, unwashed hair, almost sexy dance moves and lots of kickass music by some incredibly talented artists- Band of Horses, Iron & Wine, Hunter Hunted, New Politics, Outkast, Foo Fighters, Ms Mr, and Imagine Dragons- to name a few.

i ran into two girls and a guy who passed this camera along to me! You snap a picture of yourself and pass it along to the stranger. It gets returned to the festival lost and found and the owner gets some fun snapshots from the festival. Sweet deal, right?
