Three attendees of McDowell Mountain Music Festival this past weekend. Check out our complete coverage of the event.
Attendees of last weekend's McDowell Mountain Music Festival at Margaret T. Hance Park found plenty of ways to feel the music during all three days of the event, including those folks of crunchier, groovier, and dread-headed bent.

Over the past decade, the springtime concert festival has been a popular destination for hippies, granola munchers, tie-dye fanatics, and the disciples of Jerry Garcia, probably because it typically boasts a healthy dose of jam bands, reggae acts, and prog rockers in addition to its diverse lineup of indie and Americana acts. And -- along with others in attendance -- they're in a mood to dance, with or without hula-hoops in hand. We grabbed more than a dozen clips of hippie activity that transpired at MMMF, which are presented in animated GIF form.

Ben can't write a decent article so he has to make fun of other people having a good time. Great job, New Times. This is the lowest form of journalism.

Wow.The New Times hired a high school kid with low self-esteem to write for them. How incredibly unimpressive.

Pathetically pejorative.

If it were remotely witty or slightly amusing it would be forgivable. As is, it comes off with the cruelty and skill of a middle school bully. Simply another sign of the declining journalistic standards at the (once acclaimed) Phoenix New Times.

Let me help you with some fact checking that you seemed to have missed when you were bashing the hippie community: Those aren't hippie nunchucks. It is a form of flow art called poi. 


I'm sorry to see that you aren't filled with bliss and sunshine like the rest of us hippies :)

That guy is such an ass hole I've met him in person and he has no right to talk as much crap as he does! If he doesn't like our culture he should report on something else!
