Seen and heard onstage throughout the event, Shure microphones played a big role at the festival. The photos and captions tell some of the story…

Widely revered for his musicianship, his showmanship remains within a league of its own, marked over the years by wild leaps off amplifier stacks, playing his guitar with his feet, teeth, a handkerchief, drumstick, or behind his back while hanging upside down from the rafters, and during walkabouts into the audience at the end of a 150 ft. cord. more
