Did you get to the mighty Hillside Festival this past weekend? If you missed it, I hope you may have experienced a slice of the big juicy pie through these images.

Veteran Hillsiders, such as myself will often ask one another what your "Hillside Moment" was. For some it is the Sunday morning gospel hour, for others it is just sitting and soaking in the people parade. My Hillside Moment can be summed up in this image. Seun Kuti & Egypt 80's performance had people shaking their tail feathers for his entire set. Forty minutes is not nearly long enough for a band that comes all the way from Nigeria. His shekere player mentioned to me that they normally start at midnight and finish just as the sun comes up. Now that is a dance party!

Thank you Hillside! I am still smiling from all the great memories!!

Enjoy the rest of your summer!
