SATURDAY
Breland

Breland’s unique sound blends country and hip-hop, and he sure woke everyone up as one of the first sets of the day. He even paid tribute to and performed a medley of Nelly hits acknowledging the Country Grammar rapper as the first person to inspire him to combine the genres in music. – DA

Yeek

Ahead of his scheduled Sunday set, Yeek performed an intimate show for Bud Light Seltzer Sessions, drawing in a large afternoon crowd. The South Floridian Filipino pop/R&B artist brought that cool, upbeat lo-fi wave he’s known for to NYC and everyone was vibing and dancing along. Impossible not to. – DA

Megan Thee Stallion

Megan was arguably one of the most anticipated sets of the festival and she so lived up to the hype. I also didn’t realize how many hits she’s had until she performed and every single song on the set was a showstopper. Moreover, her choreography and energy is one that I firmly believe everyone needs to experience live. – DA

SUNDAY
Faye Webster

No better way to start your day than with Faye Webster. Although her music is very laid back, the folk/indie artist’s fans were going crazy screaming and wooing song after song as she performed favorites off her latest album, I Know I’m Funny haha, and beloved classics from previous albums. – DA

Call Me Maybe? Carly Rae Jepsen hits the stage

Carly Rae Jepsen had arguably the most underrated set of the whole festival. Her stage presence and ability to move a crowd to tears and joy made her set the most memorable. Not only did she perform timeless and viral hits “Call Me Maybe” and “I Really Like You,” but her more recent tracks off her 2020 album, Dedicated Side B, hit just the same. Prior to seeing her set, I wasn’t fully aware of her impact, however, after seeing CRJ’s performance, I understand the fandom. – DA
