While so many of the acts were powerful, energetic, and/or cultured, for me, Fitz and the Tantrums was hands down the most all-out fun act of DeLuna Fest! I can't say enough how much I hope you get to see this crew live. It's by far my favorite experience of the weekend!
Now, I know that Stic-of-the-Week isn't exactly known for country music but The Zac Brown Band put on an impressive show regardless. Thats the thing about DeLuna Fest is we have such a wide variety of cultures that compile in this area that it's fun to change it up and see something you might not otherwise. For instance - I think Florence & the Machine is incredible! Her voice is ethereal and stunning but I might not have seen her without being at DeLuna! She skips across the stage in a flowy gown and (despite her self-proclaimed unemotional British upbringing) encouraged us to hug and kiss everyone around us. The show was both visually and musically stunning. She ended DeLuna on such a bittersweet note because it was so sad that it was over but man - I can't wait until next year!
