This past weekend nearly 25,000 eager festival goers descended on Seaside Park in Bridgeport CT for Gathering of the Vibes. Despite record heat in the 100′s for the first of the festival’s four days, it was a 1st class rage fest. The crowds were some of the more experienced i have seen, as the musical acts were as well. The Main stage hosted every living member of the Grateful Dead, The band who’s spirit is the essence of GOTV itself. Here are some photos in and around the festival grounds.
