The last day of Rhythms on the Rio 2015 was clear and sunny—and really quite pleasant temperature-wise. The day’s event began as Saturday’s did with YogaDurango offering an hour all-levels yoga class for festivalgoers. This free class was well attended by about twenty, very obvious advanced yoga practitioners yesterday, who were stretched out on the grass and under canopies. Today’s participants were fewer. But yoga seemed to set a tone for a laid back kind of day today, though the music was definitely hot.
Today’s Rhythms on the Rio opened up with heavy cloud cover, promising rain. That’s not a good sign with an outdoor festival, but these Coloradoans are a hardy lot and will dance to music no matter the condition.

It’s not always easy to get to a musical festival the minute the doors open. Between work and friends traveling from different pockets, and especially if alcohol is involved the night (or brunch) before, it gets even harder by the day. When your lineup is as stacked as Outside Lands’ though, you’d be a fool to show up late. Here are five acts that are sure to make the hustle worth it.
