In the sea of summer concerts, not one could upstage the confetti-raining, swag-stylin’, toddler-dancing energy of Rock the Garden. The 2014 two-day festival, a project of the Walker and The Current, ranged from the rap rhythms of hip-hop trio De La Soul to the catchy harmonics of Spoon. The Walker hillside was filled with colorful blankets, enthusiastic concert-goers, and mad spirit. The weather gods seemed to be on our side this year with a sunshine-filled Saturday and on-and-off droplets on Sunday, which ended in a symphony of light. Audience members showed off their crowd-surfing ways, cat enthusiasm, and groovy dance moves. Nothing peeled back the layers and revealed radiating summer fun more than Rock the Garden. Photographer Carina Lofgren was there to capture the faces and the fun during the festival’s first day.
