I have had a pretty great festival season, and First City Festival was the perfect way to end it! It was the festival’s first year, but they totally pulled it off. The food was fabulous (awesome food trucks galore), the bands were amazing, and there was even a carnival! It took place at Monterey’s County Fair Grounds and Event Center, where the Monterey Pop Festival took place in 1967, which was a super fun fact to me being obsessed with 60s and 70s culture.
Purity Ring, Toro y Moi, and Capital Cities were up there in my favorites along with Dr. Dog, Washed Out, and Delta Spirit. But in the end, pretty much every band I saw this weekend was amazing! In the photo above, you can see us Lulus girls goofing around at the festival. Check out more of my fav bands, festival looks, and instagram snaps below!

Here you can see a collection of our instagrams from our personal accounts and from the Lulus account. Clockwise from top left: the Ferris wheel; a cutie we spotted in a striped dress; Kerrie, Brit, and Allison with Chaz Bundick of Toro y Moi*; Avery Tare; our favorite drink at the festival– strawberry lemonade; all the girls at Dr. Dog!; Kerrie taking a picture with Scott McMicken of Dr. Dog*; another festival cutie; and finally, the center photo is the crowd at Passion Pit!
