Ten Iconic Shots From Moonrise Festival Day One (Pimlico Race Course)

August 15, 2014 -

Sam Rodriguez

Our first day  in Baltimore for Moonrise Festival at the Pimlico Race Course was truly one to see to believe. Upon arrival, we were greeted with open arms from concert organizers to festival-goers.  The festival was broken up into four stages: Stellar, Lunar, Solar and Celestial. Overall, the event was thoroughly conducted and organized in a way that I have personally not witnessed in a long time. (Fans weren’t expected to dig through their pockets and shed out cash for water, volunteers making their rounds handed water bottles to them, no questions asked.) Moonrise really set the bar high for future festivals, all while its attendees had the time of their lives. We got together with Razberry Photography to bring you Day 1, enjoy!

3. No stars yet? No problem.
