Cold War Kids at Summer Ends Music Festival

By Jazmyn Walker

The four days of Summer Ends Music Festival has sadly come to an end. However, luckily we have photographers and journalists to provide us with just a little something to relive it a bit.

I had the amazing opportunity to shoot Cold War Kids the first night of the music festival at Tempe Beach Park. As the opening act for Thursday night, the crowd had not fully developed yet, but nonetheless Cold War Kids’ fans were lined up against the barricade. The amount of excitement and anticipation in the air was set on fire with adrenaline and energy from the crowd as soon as the band stepped out on stage. The band didn’t hesitate to get the festival rolling and jumped right into the music. Hits like “Miracle Mile”, “Hang Me Up To Dry”, and “First” each got a great crowd reaction and even some of the photographers, including myself, couldn’t help but sing along. The hour long set left the crowd lively and prepared not only for a great night, but a great weekend.
