FloydFest: Beyond the Headliners Part II

The time is near to leave behind the daily grind and head to the hills to soak up the magic, music, and mountains of FloydFest ’16. Before you do, we’re back with Part II of FloydFest: Beyond the Headliners. Part I featured the indie folk sounds of Colorado group Elephant Revival, the ever so funky Con Brio, and the sweet bluesy rock of The Honey Island Swamp Band. Since FloydFest is bringing 100 different artists over nine stages in five days, we wanted to take another look at a few of the festival’s “must-sees.”
Nakho and Medicine for the People
Sitting extremely close to the headliners, this quintet out of Portland, Oregon, is led by singer/songwriter Nahko Bear, who uses his powerful voice and lyrics as a catalyst for positive change. The music itself is a mix of upbeat tempos and layered sounds as the band combines funky hip hop and indie folk rock with a dash of tribal soul.
