SOS Fest: The magic of Sound on Sound in 10 GIFs

The first Sound on Sound festival is roaring in the Sherwood Forest. It’s one big hearty turkey leg of a festival where punk legends officiate a real-life wedding, kids of all kinds dance on a skateboard ramp, and big-on-Spotify bands like Beach House and Purity Ring totally own it as headlining entity.

Mud, travel time, and tobacco sponsors galore notwithstanding, patrons will point to year one someday and recall the zany sights and sounds. Here are ten slabs of that unique, bold magic–in GIF form.

1) The skateboard ramp dance party, which sprang up well after midnight
