After a successful inaugural year in 2015, Sloss Fest returned to Birmingham last weekend delivering yet another stand-out music festival to the state of Alabama. Produced by AC Entertainment and Red Mountain Entertainment, the 2-day festival took place at Sloss Furnaces offering a backdrop that featured the same iron furnace that helped develop the city over 100 years ago.

While the warm weather might have made one think they were maybe a little too close to the furnace, a short downpour on Sunday helped cool down patrons. Flawless sets from Ryan Adams, Death Cab For Cutie, and The Flaming Lips will likely be most memorable, but breakout performances from acts like The Arcs, Glass Animals, Sylvan Esso, Washed Out, Danny Brown, Betty Who, and The Burning Peppermints solidified the well rounded 2016 lineup.

While we reminisce and look forward to Sloss Fest 2017, check out some of our stunning 360° captures from the festival below.
