While Snoop put on a rather exciting DJ set, mixing sounds of everyone from Lionel Richie to James Brown to The Chainsmokers' "Let Me Take A Selfie", Busta Rhymes came out for surprise performance of his classics. The truly surprising part of the evening came from the roaring '20s feel that included women dancing in giant martini glasses, tap dancers, flappers, and burlesque dancers.–Ryan (Twitter|Instagram)20140524_142139Went to Kang Kang Food Court in the San Gabriel Valley to try their Shanghai pan fried pork buns and was not disappointed! The bottoms were perfectly seared to a golden brown and the pork filling was swimming in a delicious broth. –Kelly (Twitter|Instagram)X-Men-Days-of-Future-Past-Character-Poster-Mystiquehttp://instagram.com/p/oesCiIJEyC/Went to see X-Men and had a grill sesh.

LIB is different than most festivals with its focus on community, sustainability, and an open mind. The music and art were amazing, but what makes it special is the people who go to LIB. There is a vibe that can't be replicated, a feeling that everyone there is family. One of my favorite music sets was Little Dragon Saturday night at the main stage. Their show was incredible and her voice is unmatched. –Kyle (Twitter|Instagram)Nev_sailingThis weekend:I looked to the sea, allowing reflections in the waves to spark my memorySome happy and some sadI reminisced with college friends on the dreams we hadWe drank happily together, or so the story goesSetting our eyes to the ocean and the pot of goldAnd we tried the best that we can to carry onThen a gathering of angels appeared above our headThey sang to us this song of hope, and this is what they saidThey said come sail away, come sail awayCome sail away with meCome sail away, come sail awayCome sail away with me...So we did, and I drank port wine on the port side until the sun set over my beautiful new home.–Neville (Instagram)
