This weekend, a bunch of artists rocked the stage at Madison’s Revelry Music and Arts Festival. The packed University of Wisconsin crowd saw performances from Chance The Rapper and The Social Experiment, Mick Jenkins, AlunaGeorge, Until The Ribbon Breaks, The Chainsmokers, Nick Hakim, LordPrez, and many more! And not only did we capture some great shots from the festival, our photographer Dan Garcia got some great footage as well.
A few years ago Madison’s Revelry Music and Arts Festival booked Chance The Rapper for a small performance, and for a crowd of less than a couple hundred. A lot has changed since then, and the numbers showed last night.

Chano wasn’t the only one to hit the Revelry stage though. This year, fans saw great performances from Chicago’s Mick Jenkins, AlunaGeorge (‘You Know You Like It’), Until The Ribbon Breaks, The Chainsmokers, Nick Hakim, LordPrez, and many more!

We just got back from Coachella, and already we are getting excited to travel to our next music festival. While the next fest on our radar is definitely on a smaller scale, that isn’t necessarily a bad thing.
