The hot, scattered rainstorms that characterized this past week are set to continue. The past week brought heavy rain and thunder most days, creating a danger of flash floods.

In Colorado, heavy rain and hail caused flooding and much hail damage in the mountain west. It's been a wet week.

The performers might be superstars, but they are live people just like the audience, with stories behind their success. From Post Malone to Halsey to Khalid, every young performer repeated the same tale: be your own self, and keep chasing your dreams. Perhaps that’s why these festivals are so popular: because they tell us to carry on, and because they show us people’s dreams truly have no end.
