Summer 2015 officially ended on September 22nd, but the week that follows is officially the last week of summer denial. With the onset of October it’s time to face facts: is finally, completely dead and gone. It was a damn fine one, though, filled with surprise shows, musical activism and the triumphant return of a number of veteran stars. Most of all, though, it was a season defined by rising young guns like Joey Bada$$, Ibeyi and Jon Batiste making good on the early promise of their talent. Thanks to our top-notch family of photographers, Okayplayer captured some of the best sonic moments of the summer, and now we’ve collated them here for your convenient review. Take a scroll down memory lane as we recap, in no particular order, the good old days of summer 2k15.
