Music festivals are where you go to escape reality and detach yourself from your every day stresses and ILLfest did not disappoint. Not to mention, Austin, Texas was the perfect location for it with its southern charm and comforting ambience. The acts consisted of Cheat Codes, Louis the Child, Slander, Tsu Nami, Mija, Wax Motif, Madeon, Jai Wolf, Griz, Getter, and Kayzo.
What really set this festival apart were the art displays all around the venue. Artists from across the nation worked on their respective murals throughout the duration of the festival. After sundown, festival goers enter a new world brought to life by fire dancers and technicolor murals enhanced by neon lights. Immersed in the plethora of visual art and incredible music, illfest created an experience that will forever be etched in our hearts. We hope to return again soon!
