Life Is Beautiful Festival

So I spent the weekend at a kind of shitty festival, but I got to see Kanye rand Outkast so rrrrrwhatever.
1Milky Chance
Sadnecessary


First band to play at the stage I was camping out for front row Kanye. They were whatever, definitely boring and repetitive. But they have that one song though that's in every video. 0
2Holy Ghost!
Dynamics


Pretty cool, I like some of their songs. The vocals were kind of weak, but it's okay we were all just chilling. +
3Phantogram
Eyelid Movies


I was actually excited to see them but I was with a crowd of people waiting to see The Weeknd (read: 15 year old girls). So it was kind of lame, but they put on a good show and Sarah has a lot of energy. When I'm Small and Mouthful Of Diamonds sound great. +
4Girl Talk
Feed the Animals


Eyyyy this was actually really fun. I had no idea what to expect, but the dude is so gimmicky it's irresistibly likeable. He blows toilet paper rolls with lawn mowers at you the whole time and a bunch of other silly things. His mashups are pretty okay I guess, but yeah. +
5The Weeknd
House Of Balloons


Damn Abel's weak. I expected like a low-key performance, but it was the complete opposite. It would've been better if he just stood there and sung the songs. It was so corny and off-putting. I don't know why I expected anything else. He runs around with his Basquiat wannabe hair and makes gestures at girls the whole time. Wicked Games and Often sounded good live though. -
6Kanye West
My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy


The people waiting for The Weeknd in the front row left so I got there. Shit's crazy. If you haven't seen Yeezy live yet you really should. Easily the highlight of the festival. +++
7The Preatures
Blue Planet Eyes


First band of day 2, there wasn't anyone else playing and I knew a few songs. They were decent and it was fun. +
8Paper Route
Absence


Hah, I felt really corny at this I left after the first song. -
9Bear Hands
Distraction


Super boring, no stage dynamics at all. The guy just stands there and yells into the mic the whole time. I left during the second song. -
10Ok Go
Hungry Ghosts


These guys still exist? I got food and heard like four songs (that treadmill video one). 0
11MisterWives
Reflections-EP


No one else was playing and these guys were at the closest stage. Energy was cool and everyone was having a good time. The lead singer is a cute. +
12Tycho
Dive


This shit is spiritual live i felt like I was floating. ++
13The Roots
Game Theory


Was really pumped to see them, but I ended up in the worst spot and everything sucked so I left after 3 or 4 songs to catch TV on the Radio. Not that they were bad, I just wasn't feeling it. -
14TV on the Radio
Dear Science


Not the biggest fan, but I liked their set. +
15Alt-J
An Awesome Wave


These guys do absolutely nothing on stage. They just sit their and play really monotonously. Like they're bored or something, it was really off putting. Everything sounded good though and Breezeblocks is amazing. 0
16Outkast
Aquemini


Super pumped to see Outkast that the hype kind of overshadowed the actual performance, but it was still amazing. They brought out Sleepy Brown and did a lot of old stuff. They hit everything really, even little solo sections for 3Stacks and Big Boi. ++
17Ryan Hemsworth
Still Awake


Day 3 kind of sucked so I showed up really late. Hemsworth was playing midway through the day so I caught him. He's so awkward and personable that everything was enjoyable. The crowd was shitty but I was feeling it. ++
18Broken Bells
Broken Bells


James Mercer is the 100% safe performance guy. Not flashy, but admirable all the same. I'm not a huge fan, but their set was really good and the crowd was having fun. +
19Arctic Monkeys
Suck It And See


Whatever. If you've seen a live stream performance you don't need to see them live. They're so calculated to the point that Alex Turner's gestures are identical every time. They played a lot off of AM and didn't even touch Mardy Bum or 505. But I guess they're AM they do what they want. -
20Kacey Musgraves
Same Trailer Different Park


I was walking around and heard "Follow Your Arrow" so I went to check it out. People were having the time of their lives at this show it was crazy. All types of fans too, they were just chilling and not giving a fuck. I only heard that song but damn it looked like a good time. +
21Skrillex
Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites


I went just to check it out (Foo Fighters was the other headliner). It was crazy, I can't even explain it. I stayed for 3 songs then sat on a lawn and just watched everyone go crazy. It's a spectacle for sure. +
