There was a lot of energy at yesterday's 4Knots Music Festival, and some people decided to use it to propel themselves above the crowd—to middling results. Here, thanks to the crack shooting efforts of photographer Willie Davis, are a few notable shots of people engaged in the once-again-popular act of crowdsurfing, that storied practice of getting to know one's fellow concertgoers (or at least their outstretched hands) while ensuring oneself a better vantage point than the rest of them, if only for a few brief moments.

Not a "crowdsurfer" in the technical sense, but doesn't she look adorable?
