The first day of Taste of Fort Collins was a hot one - and not just because of the weather. With local acts from right here in Fort Collins to national acts turning up the heat on stage, the TOFC main stage kept the crowd jumping and dancing all day.

TX2 and Lady Denim got the crowd going in the peak of the afternoon with both artists' ability to highlight different genres and sounds. Their connection with the crowd really showed their roots to Fort Collins.

Taro was absolutely electric on Saturday and brought the energy leading into Pandas & People and Tessa Violet. For the latter two artists, the positive vibes were at an all time high nearing the end of the night. And Tessa's amazing yellow hair wasn't even the brightest part of her performance!

As the sun went down, Holdfast pulled the night perfectly through their performance and alternative sound, leading right into Spin Doctors. Spin Doctors rang in the night as the last act and had the crowd on their feet to close out night one of the festival.
