We are in awe of the talent of day two! Getting to talk more one-on-one with some artists, our day was overall a great one. What was expected to be a rainy day turned a bit cloudy with some sun capturing the talent that was present. We got to see some artists (*whispers* Odie Leigh and Jon Batiste) that you should keep on your radar, but most importantly, in your playlists.
Alice Phoebe Lou
The Oscar short-lister, Alice Phoebe Lou, started our second day back. Recently she has put out a new album called, Shelter. We got to hear a few new tunes while swaying back and forth to chill love songs. There had been a draw to her with the crowd as the lawn was packed to the brim cheering her on.
Indigo De Souza
Indigo had brought her indie-chill vibe back to the Harbor stage. Being in a sweet spot during the day, it was easy to relax, grab a bite or two, and listen in on the beautiful writing of Indigo and her crew. We absolutely adored her and can’t wait to see where she goes next!
We got to hear a bit of Nanna’s set before meeting up with her for some portraits. Bringing a new tone to her live set, she recently released an album How to Start A Garden. We also got to hear some new tracks while celebrating her time here at the festival.
Playing the one-of-a-kind bike stage (powered solely by festival goers riding bikes), this solar-powered stage had been a sweet transition in the day. Odie played a few short songs while interacting with the crowd to help sing along. After her set, we got the chance to talk more with her and absolutely loved her vibe. Celebrating her first time in Rhode Island, she was excited to see how this weekend would unfold.
Bringing along some friends on stage, Jon started out playing a new track called ‘Rain Dance.’ He helped highlight the many ways Native Americans have impacted the brightness of community and life. Also, bringing along other friends like Lauren Daigle, Jon is no stranger to this festival. His love set was vibrant and poured out inspiration. We fell in love with his gratefulness to be present and thankful.

Day two was something special and we laughed, cried, fangirl-ed (what else is new). What are your favorite artists we covered today? Are you going to day three? Who is on your bucket list to see play ‘the fort’ next year?
