This Is Hardcore Fest kicked off 2013 with a flash thunderstorm as doors were opening that made for an impressive synchronized mode of all hands on deck with everyone helping to hold up tents, get merch under shelter, etc. A hardcore ballet if you will. A little rain could not dampen spirits as waves of fans made their way throughout the massive outdoor merch displays, humane and activist tents, record labels, and more. We bring you the first round of candid shots as opening bands Truth, Praise, and Suburban Scum got the floor moving and festivities underway.
Blow The Scene‘s Dante Torrieri and Joshua Cohen will be holding down the candid and crowd shots as Anne Spina gathers her massive collection of band shots from the stage. Our official band galleries will be posted separately as we did in 2012.
Without further ado, enjoy Day 1 Part 1 Candids, ad stay tuned because we’re only getting started!
Round 1 by Dante Torrieri
