Common Ground 2014: Photo Gallery

Common Ground 2014
Created with oQey Gallery

We sent our photographers to Common Ground Music Festival to conduct some field research on the facial appearances of artists during a performance. The evidence they collected proves that artists do indeed make the weirdest of faces on stage. We believe this strange effect to be a direct result of the passion musically inclined individuals feel while performing. But, our research continues.

Check out our gallery of enthusiastic facial expressions we captured during Common Ground Music Festival of artists like Say Anything, Big Sean, Dr. Dog and The Orwells.

 

Artists in Order: You Blew It, Say Anything, Circa Survive, Violent Femmes, The Wailers, Berner, Chevy Woods, Ace Hood, Machine Gun Kelly, Hitman & Dj Klaverflav, Big Sean, Jukebox the Ghost, Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr., Dr. Dog, The Orwells, Royal Teeth, X Ambassadors, Fitz and the Tantrums, Joe Hertler & the Rainbow Seekers, Earth Wind & Fire

Adam Bussell – Tues, Wed, Fri, Sat, Sun
