Full Moon Fest Preview

Summer is now in full swing, meaning weekends booked solid and long hot nights. This Saturday July 8th, Full Moon Fest rises with a breath of air, opening the festival with The Big Quiet, a mass meditation session led by Jesse Israel, before partying down with artists including, Vic Mensa, Larry Heard aka Mr.Fingers and Kelelam.

We looked to Matte Projects, the production company behind the boutique festival, to find out who they’re watching on Instagram. Here, some of the influencers keeping this summer fest chill.
