The very first River's Edge Music Festival is now a piece of Harriet Island lore. Photographer Erik Hess had so much fun gathering Rock the Garden GIFs that he just kept going with it here. Both of our headliners' frontmen, Tool's Maynard James Keenan and Dave Matthews, get animated within, and there are loads more images within that'll always be associated with this weekend.

Above, we have about nine female attendees dressed as Dorothy Gale from The Wizard of Oz completely blissed out during the Flaming Lips riotous performance. And there's someone in a star suit. If you can handle that, you can handle everything we're dishing out. So, let's get to the GIFs!

We knew you'd be psyched.

Here, Dave Matthews gets in a few pre-show calisthenics.


Throwing metal horns means you gotta hold both beers in one hand. NBD.

Mutemath took the theme of River's Edge perhaps a bit too literally.

Harriet Island is large enough for ample dancing room.


Confetti was in no short supply during the Flaming Lips' set. Also, is that tree dancing?

Diplo attracted one of Raspberry Island's liveliest crowds.

Arsenio Hall > Dave Matthews.


The obligatory hacky sack GIF.

Similarly, the obligatory dudes in their briefs and furry boots doing some hula hooping GIF.

Scissor Sisters' Jake Shears and Ana Matronic be on that Kryptonite.

Heavy, bro.

And here's Tool/Puscifer frontman Maynard James Keenan using the entire Bishop stage as his personal surfboard.
