Fans settled into the festival grounds to take in day two at Sasquatch! Another sunny twenty-something degree day carried a distinctly more mellow vibe as the crowds seemed to familiarize with the layout.
A jam packed lineup included highlight performances form Atlas Genius, the Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Bloc Party, The XX and Sigur Ros to close out the evening.
My pick for best show: Black Rebel Motorcycle Club. BRMC’s sound is the definition of badass and they delivered with their performance. Their heavy guitar licks and dark lyrics attracted a more diverse crowd with a higher average age than all the previous days performances. Overall BRMC was a major highlight of the festival! – C
Kim’s pick for best show: Sigur Rós! The ambient band hails from Iceland and closed out the mainstage on the second day. Their mystical sound didn’t draw nearly as big of a crowd as Friday’s Macklemore & Ryan, but that’s to be expected from a band that plays with language and layers in music. Lead singer, Jón Þór “Jónsi” Birgisson, played the bowed guitar while the group brought the crowd through a rise and fall of a magical, sometimes dark musical experience. – K
