How was your Labor Day weekend? My holiday weekend took place in the City of Brotherly Love. Yep, yep. I was in Philly for the Made in America festival. I went last year (view recap here) and seeing the lineup months in advance for this year I knew I had to reintroduce myself to the festival again.
|It was SO effin' hot in Philly. Ugh.|
On Day 1, after arriving mad late to a pre-festival party to get our drank, we had to immediately bounce (We still got our drank on, though. Trust.) to try to catch ASAP Rocky's set. Here we were thinking we were late only to get there and see that ASAP Rocky was late himself. Dude quickly performed only, like, 3.5 songs and quickly left. So underwhelming. Next up was 2 Chaaaaaiiiinnnnnzzzz. He did a phenomenal job. I truly enjoyed his set. Before Beyonce's set, which was the last performance on Day 1, we decided to try to find a good sitting/standing position. Once there, we laid down our blankets and chilled and waited. I was slipping in and out of sleep but the band playing on the main stage wouldn't allow me to fully sleep. Why? Because they were fuckin' awesome, that's why. I just gave up trying to sleep and laid there jamming away. Later on I found out that the band was Phoenix. I'm now a fan. Easily.
|Beyonce provided her audience with glitter blessings. I'm all for glitter so iApprove.|
I didn't even wipe off the glitter 'til I got back to the hotel.
This was during Singles Ladies. I think.
Oh. You may have noticed that I hardly have any performance photos from Day 1. That's because my phone died so quickly that even I was shocked. Come to find out leaving so many programs running like GPS and roaming led to my phone taking a long nap. D'oh.
