Sad Summer Fest | Milwaukee, WI

The Sad Summer Festival wasn’t all that sad. The fest made its way to The Rave in Milwaukee, WI.

In a world where it can feel like our differences tear us apart there's something to be said about the way music and art can bring so many together despite all of that.
