The Year in FLOOD: 25 Best Live Photos of 2019

We got around a lot this year.

In 2019, FLOOD photographers were on the ground for some of the greatest festivals and events across the country (and beyond), from Levitation in Austin, Texas to Robert Smith’s Pasadena Daydream Festival in California to Flow Festival in Helsinki, Finland.

Here are twenty-five of our best live shots from this year, providing a glimpse into the spirit and energy of many of our favorite artists on the road in 2019.
