Madison’s Revelry Music and Arts Festival has evolved year after year, and while it’s style and location have changed on multiple occasions, one thing that’s consistent is that it always supplies the students of the University of Wisconsin with some great music. Last year was our first year on-site for Revelry, where fans saw great performances from Chance The Rapper, The Chainsmokers, Mick Jenkins and AlunaGeorge, just to name a few. This year’s stellar lineup was no exception to the great lineups of the past. Now hitting stage at Madison’s historic Orpheum Theatre, Revelry saw some great sets from ‘Tuesday’ rapper/singer and OVO Sound artist iLoveMakonnen, GOOD Music‘s Hudson Mohawke, Milwaukee’s talented emerging artist WebsterX, a surprise appearance from IshDARR, Minnesota rapper Finding Novyon, and many more!
If you missed out this year, you did just that, you missed out… because everyone from the bottom to top of the lineup delivered tonight. Hit the jump to check out some of our favorite photos from Revelry 2016, as we sent our photographer Dan Garcia to capture some of the festival’s best moments.
IshDARR has been making some stellar moves within the music industry ever since his debut mixtape, Old Soul Young Spirit, dropped last Spring. The Milwaukee rapper enjoyed a healthy amount of recognition on ‘Best of 2015’ lists by the time the year was out and shows no sign of slowing down. His video for ‘Too Bad’ was like a flare being shot about the dark, cloudy and saturated market of music. With undeniable charisma and no shortage of stories to tell, he brings in 2016 with a brand new track, ‘Time Shawty’ produced by Baltimore native, Millz Douglas. The track has IshDARR harmonizing over some signature hi-hat rattles and pianos about the lack of time his new found success has afforded him, least of all for women.
