PHOTOS: What You Missed at the 2013 Life Is Good Festival
Jack Johnson and The Roots delivered killer performances at Prowse Farm in Canton.
Itâ€™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, itâ€™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 thatâ€”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 childrenâ€™s section with their funky and rambunctious jams.
