After a very entertaining launch to Day 2 with Ayo & Teo‘s entertaining dance filled set, It was Los Angeles’ own Maggie Lindemann‘s turn to rock the festival over on the Sun Stage. Lindemann who gained a massive following on social media, when she became well known for her song “Knocking on Your Heart” which earned her a Top 20 spot on the iTunes Alternative Chart within 24 hours of it’s release. Then her 2016 debut single “Pretty Girl” launched her career rapidly as a hit song taking over the internet. The “Cool Kids” which is Echosmith then taking over the main stage (Hot 100 Stage) launching their set with “Get Into My Car” from their forthcoming second studio album Inside a Dream. Echosmith are all siblings, despite the departure of their eldest brother Jamie Sierota last year who was their guitarist, however their live show hasn’t changed without him, still as flawless as it used to be. Jack & Jack got fans moving and their energy levels launched to the extreme as they walked on the stage, fans freaking out especially the girls on the front barricade with Jack & Jack merch on. Jack & Jack put on an energetic performance using every inch of the stage to perform. DJ Khaled arrived about 30-minutes, arriving with his son Asahd in his arms which turned into a massive crowd chanting his son’s name.

His set was more then just a set but it was a party of singles he produced and was on.
T-Pain who had what seemed was the largest crowd of the entire weekend, as he does not tour too often so his set was highly anticipated to see. His set was appreciated and was highly successful with a next level enjoyment. Next was Camila Cabello, on her first ever festival performance in which she slayed beyond expectation. Lil Yachty, one of the younger artists on the festival but a fan favorite as he perform his hit single with Kyle (however Kyle was not present) “ISpy.” Marshmello and Major Lazer had sets to remember filled with production like pyro, lazors, beautiful light shows, fireworks, and energy explosions getting the crowd going wild.
