Way Strange Fest 

Strange Ways presented the first year of a new festival in Upland, California called Way Strange Fest. The lineup intrigued me because it featured a lot of the smaller bands I’d often missed during other festivals and lots I had never seen live, but caught my interest. Most of them being from Southern California and many on Burger Records and Lollipop Records. Here’s some photos I took of the bands I saw:

Toward the end, the crowd pushed the barrier down and much to security’s dismay, stormed the stage. In turn, their mics were turned off and their set got cut short early, but I had enough Strangeness. Can’t wait to see if they have it again next year!

Set Schedule (I noticed a few bands on the line-up weren't on the schedule and did not end up performing for unknown reasons)
