Today was the second and last day of the Wild Life Festival, which was bittersweet to say goodbye to. There were so many great artists Michelle and I got to see. We sang and danced along to many songs, and enjoyed it tremendously! People's outfits were amazing as usual (highlight: girl wearing Yeezy Season 3 jacket!). You can't see much in this photo, but this is supposed to be the view of the lit-up carnival rides at night.
My Snapchat story got deleted when I tried to send it out, but here's a recap of every act we caught the performance of:
Izzy Bizu: She is such a goddess! I just about lost my mind when she brought out Honne to perform "Someone That Loves You."
Goldlink: We were fortunate to be front row for Goldlink. He even jumped into the crowd to mosh with people! It was mad in the best way possible.
Snakehips: All of my wildest SoundCloud dreams came true when Snakehips performed their set! They played Soulja Boy and, honestly, that's all I need in life. Everyone sang "All My Friends" at the top of their lungs at the end too.
James Bay: I got really soft when he performed "Let It Go." He's so amazing live! It was the first time I've seen him without a hat as well. #baegoals
Bastille: Before they went mainstream, I was a big fan of Bastille (sorry for being such a hipster, but just being honest!). They performed their "No Scrubs" and "Rhythm of the Night" covers which I loved.
Ice Cube: Ice Cube was legendary! He brought out his son DoughBoy out with him as his hypeman and it was such a cute family affair. Michelle and I even got to meet Lady Leshurr while chilling on the grass. It was the cherry on top of an already awesome set!
Pusha T: We went to see Pusha T on a whim and it was great that we got to see him perform "M.P.A."
Section Boyz: Michelle and I went to seem them in the Supercharged Arena, and when we walked inside the tent, it was like a trap rave. 'Nuff said.
Rudimental: We didn't get to stay too long for Rudimental because we wanted to catch Kaytranada's set, but Will Heard was on stage with them and his vocals took my breath away. I wish I had a time turner so I could have been in two places at once.
Kaytranada: I've been wanting to see Kaytranada live, but every time I've tried to get tickets to local shows, they've been sold out. I'm happy Michelle and I got to end our night with his set, though!
Music is definitely healing when so much is happening. Even though I'm far from home, my prayers go out to the victims of the mass shooting in Orlando and the LGBTQ community. xx
