To Pitchfork two weekends ago for Kendrick Lamar and Vampire Weekend, and then back again for Red Hot Chili Peppers and Flo at Lollapolooza next. Summer’s busy festival season draws fans to corners of the country far and wide with line-ups that bundle all their favorite acts into one great go. But what does it take to get those artists here and there and onstage, week in and week out? VH1 News caught up with California indie rockers Young The Giant at Dover, Delaware’s Firefly Music Festival this past weekend to see. There’s their big-red bus decked with beer cubbies (“It’s like living on a submarine”), friends (“It’s like working summer camp”), and dressing rooms stocked with soda pop and candy (although one day, they hope to find “a room filled with tiny wolverines, like Mariah Carey and her puppies). And most of all there is the crowd. “When we can get the audience to kind of move around and dance and just look happy? That’s pretty much it,” says drummer Francois Comtois.
