Phoenix brought their perfectly crafted and studio-quality sound to the main stage to headline the festival. They mixed in some brand new tunes along with their classics.
Feist was my main attraction for Sunday. She and the band played lots of songs from her new album Pleasure. Besides the new tunes, highlights for me included a solo acoustic "Mushaboom", along with "How Come You Never Go There", "My Moon My Man", "Sealion", "I Feel It All and "1234".
Badbadnotgood do what they do better than anyone; bring jazz to an indie rock festival.
Thundercat brought us all on his bass-led jazz odyssey.
James Vincent McMorrow and his band played us his emotive and soulful tunes.
Timber Timbre don't want photos of them playing their dark adventurous songs.
Hannah Georgas performed beautiful tunes from a fan of the fest who was honoured to be on stage for this one.
LP is that artist that most people proclaimed as a huge star in the making that we shouldn't miss. Well, she and the band lived up to the hype did not disappoint. LP plays solid, well-crafted rock that allows her voice and message to take centre stage. She attracted a really big side stage crowd.
I don't even know what to call the music that the duo called Tennyson produces. It's got tons of 70s rock and yacht rock sonic touchpoints with some 80s and 90s fusion thrown in, but the jam-heavy grooves and overall vibe is truly original. I loved listening to this cool set as the sun shone and the puddles tried to dry up.
Tobi entertained with a set that varied from chill hip-hop vibes to full on dance jams.
Nefe and her band played roots/bluesey soulful rock tunes with good grooves and emotional ballads.
Jaunt got things started with mellow sounds with big choruses and guitars.
