It’s hard to believe that the Life is good Festival started off as a small get-together in the Boston Common only five years ago. Since then, it’s blossomed into one of the best music festivals in the country. Set up at Prowse Farm in Canton, Life is good is a charming, entertaining music festival that reminds you that—well, life is good.

This past weekend’s lineup was nothing short of spectacular with powerhouses like The Roots and Jack Johnson showing the audience a good time. A jazz group by the name of Lake Street Dive made a splash as their lead singer Rachael Price charmed the audience with her soulful vocals. And Yo Gabba Gabba! held down the children’s section with their funky and rambunctious jams.

If you weren’t able to make it down to Canton this weekend, check out these scenes from the popular two-day festival:
