Shay is confidently holding the mic stand and smiling down at the crowd - she is wearing denim cut off shorts and a tied white shirt, her curly black hair is cascading. DJ Niimo is at the DJ booth in the background, he's infront of a neon diamond light, and is wearing a whiteshirt and a loose black tie. Above them are fairylights, balloons and a printed FLOURISH Festival backdrop.
