Bunbury Festival // Day 3 Highlights & Galleries

The final day of Bunbury proved to be bittersweet, but full of powerful messages from even more powerful artists.

The Candescents were the first to play the Monster Energy stage, starting with an easy going cover of “Soak Up the Sun” by Sheryl Crow.

Lauren Sanderson kicked off Pride Month well, taking the CVG River Stage with an important message. The former motivational speaker performed songs from her most recent EP “DONT PANIC!” which described the emotional tolls of coming out and being who you are.

Also representing Pride Month was the Utah band The Aces at the Monster Energy stage, starting with the song “Lovin is Bible.” The fierce female group also included other songs from the album “When My Heart Felt Volcanic.”

Run the Jewels had the crowd jumping with a high energy set list featuring songs like “Nobody Speak”, “Run the Jewels” and “Legend Has It.” They also announced the anticipated release of the next album “Run the Jewels 4” soon to come.

To finish off the final night, headliners The 1975 played a moving performance featuring songs of the latest album “A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships.” Moving into the crowd for “I Love America & America Loves Me”, frontman Matty Healy confronted fans on political statements about gun violence.
