13. A ’60s-inspired rock band had a slight public meltdown.
Foxygen frontman Jonathan Rado climbed the lighting trellace on the side of the stage before descending, accidentally smacking himself in the head. At one point, he started listing things he hated, including a declaration something to effect of “Fuck Red Bull, Fuck American Apparel, Fuck Pitchfork!” which is especially bizarre when noting that a) he’s playing the fest and b) his band is so tame, you’d expect this from one of the heavier/aggressive acts.
14. R. Kelly bringing out the festival’s most diverse audience.
People of all ages and backgrounds lined up to watch Kellz, completely mystified by the massive 38 song set. Not to mention, he closed with “I Believe I Can Fly,” complete with full church choir. I’m pretty sure everyone present will never be the same again.
20. An indie band covering Limp Bizkit and Metallica.
Mac DeMarco played a medley of Bachman Turner Overdrive’s “Taking Care Of Business,” The Beatles’ “Black Bird,” some of Limp Bizkit’s “Break Stuff,” and ended with Metallica’s “Enter Sandman.” All of them, together, in under four minutes. So weird.
21. Hardcore bands taking a break from screaming to sit on heads.
Trash Talk frontman Lee Spielman attempted to walk on heads during his set, but was greeted with open arms. At one point he fell to his knees, repositioning himself to sit cross-legged before being gently carried back to the stage. Friendcore!
