LarkFest 2011, in video

Check out this great video Julia Evanczuk made at LarkFest this past weekend (also embedded above).

But, wait, there's more:
+ Sebastien's posted a photoset from the festival (there's even a pic of AOA Mary).
+ Bennett also posted a photoset (we like this photo)
+ And here's a quick video clip by YouTube user clawdnb from the silent disco -- it's kind of fun to see the disconnect between what you're seeing and what you're not hearing.

By the way: There were an estimated 80,000 people at LarkFest this year. Or, at least, that was the "expected" number. We're curious if there's been a more systematic count of the actual number. (Counting crowds is notoriously hard and estimates often vary widely.) [Daily Gazette] [YNN] [Fox23] [Popular Mechanics]

Comments

Thanks for the link, glad you like it. There are more photos coming, just haven't had time to sort through them all. Most are in the vein of the crowd/candid shots, so maybe people will recognize themselves (though after eight hours of Lark Fest I know I have trouble recognizing myself).

Anyone know how I can get a copy of the "LarkFest 30th" poster? A bunch of photos that I submitted from past LarkFests were printed in Metroland, but I didn't make it to the actual festival this year...

Excellent video. Very well done indeed.

In addition to the Times Union's Seen Gallery, other Band photos can be found on WEXT's LarkFEST Facebook Gallery.

Definitely needs a mural. Another spot that is begging for one is the Delaware Ave Price Chopper in Albany. The side along Elm St is a huge gray wall that takes up most of the block!
