Approximately 8,500 fans of jam rock, blues, funk, soul, bluegrass and more flocked to the heartland this past weekend for the inaugural Phases of the Moon Music and Art Festival, held at Kennekuk County Park just outside of the small town of Danville, Illinois, a stone's throw from the Illinois-Indiana border.
Throughout the year our volunteer photographers battle inclement weather, large crowds, long lines, over-zealous dancers and crazy lighting schemes in order to deliver some incredible concert photos for our readers and listeners.
Thousands of music fans made their way to the "land of the delta blues" last weekend for the annual Beale Street Music Festival. This was my fifth time attending the long-running fest, part of the city's month-long Memphis in May celebration in Tom Lee Park on the banks of the Mississippi River.
This year's Beale Street Music Festival took place in Memphis from May 4 through May 6.
