The first-ever Lost Lake Festival is on the books. And it was one helluva weekend. Superfly's three-day arts and music event took over central Phoenix's Steele Indian School Park from October 20 through 22, and brought heavy-hitting headliners Chance the Rapper, The Killers, and Odesza, as well as a number of musical acts with ties to Arizona, including Kongos, Futuristic, Bogan Via, and The Ricky Fitts. Here's a look back at the highs and lows of the 2017 Lost Lake Festival.
The inaugural Lost Lake Festival was a lively affair filled with nonstop activity. Besides three straight days of great performances to experience, there were art displays to check out, oversize games to play, and plenty of people-watching to be had. Folks were also doing a lot of talking while hanging out at Lost Lake. And we were definitely listening.
Judging how others express joy is easy. But there's no policing Chance the Rapper's emotions. Once the Chicago hip-hop artist is in his feelings, up on stage, and bouncing all over it, you have no choice but to follow along. To surrender to his emphatic directions to jump, sing, and put your hands in the air. To fully experience the moment — even if repeated pyrotechnics make the moment totally unnerving.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
