The Hangout Experience Day 3 2013 | Reggae Reflection Photos


Continuing the theme of something for everyone, Day 3 had yet another impressive line up of acts for the final day of the festival.   Although there was more cloud coverage, not a drop of rain was in the forecast.  

Galactic on the Chevrolet Stage was the first set of the afternoon for me.  Galactic is a funk and jazz jam band from New Orleans.  Galactic started out their mid-afternoon set with an instrumental selection, before introducing Corey Glover from Living Color as their lead vocalist for the remainder of their set.

A friend who is a big fan of Imagine Dragons told me no matter what I had to see Imagine Dragons.  Not at all familiar with them, I’m glad I listened because I was really impressed with their set. Full of energy, this 5 member indie rock band from Las Vegas led by charismatic frontman Dan Reynolds really had the crowd energized during their late afternoon set on the Cheverolet Stage.  Earlier in the afternoon I caught a glimpse of them at Media World as they hosted a meet and greet, eagerly posing for pictures and signing autographs from many supporters of all ages.

Stevie Wonder Grand Finale 


For the grand finale of a near perfect three day festival, the masses returned to the main stage area  to see Stevie Wonder’s 2 1/2 hour long set.  Since Stevie Wonder is not frequently on tour it was a rare treat for many of the festival attendees. Stevie Wonder’s set included a great array of his classic sing along standards as well as many covers including Bob Marley’s  Reggae Classic, Is this Love.
