As the bands played, Great South Bay Music Festival attendees danced, sang and played hacky sack -- some by the light of their cellphones -- July 16-19 at Shorefront Park in Patchogue. Freeport carpenter Sebastian Schmitt wore an orange T-shirt from the Barrier Brewing Co. in Oceanside, where he works part-time, with Enyce jeans and Nike Elastico shoes. "I'm a T-shirt and jeans kind of guy," he said. Russpaul Singh, a civil engineer from Uniondale, helped out with the light in his Bruce Lee T-shirt and Nike Air Force sneakers, while Michael Edlund, a carpenter from Ridge, played in his Wreckless Adventures T-shirt, tan cargo shorts and Nike 6.0 sneakers. Ramon Thompson, an electrician from Brownsville, Brooklyn, paired Penfield shorts and Nike Roshes with a Neff Brooklyn Nets shirt. "I was representing my hometown," he said.

That's a vintage shirt on John Prudenti, a medical student from East Moriches. He wore it with Chaps shorts and Vans shoes. "The thing I love best about my outfit are the flowers," he said.

Hula-Hooping Crystal Reyes, an office administrator from Brookhaven Hamlet, wore a Kendall and Kylie Jenner PacSun vest over an American Apparel jumper. She purchased the necklace at the festival. "I was going for a Coachella vibe," said Reyes of that other music festival in California.

Northport resident Jessica Lynch, who is studying to become an aesthetician, sported a romper from Surf Gypsy. "I wanted to bring some color to the festival this weekend," she said.

John Martino, a retired carpenter from Deer Park, came in a Riverhead Blues & Music Festival T-shirt, Big Yank shorts, a Panama Jack hat and his late son's Reeboks. "Whenever I go to festivals, I take him with me," he said.

"This outfit says freedom, happiness and I'm ready to dance," said Billie Scherrer, a dental assistant and part-time personal assistant from Islip, wearing pants and a necklace she bought at the StrangeCreek Campout music festival in Massachusetts, a handmade bag she bought from the Alive After Five street fair in Patchogue and Crocband Grateful Dead Clogs.

"I feel free and empowered," said Sayville's Anna Macukas, who works in retail, in a top and skirt she found at vintage stores, a necklace made by her sister's company Little Bird Jewelry and a flower head-crown she made herself. Her belly was painted by the Gypsy Collective at the festival. "It says I am very pregnant -- eight months pregnant," she said.
