Students paint their faces ahead of Walk The Moon’s performance Saturday. The indie rock band members are known for performing with face paint.

When Mayfest wanted sunshine, it got rain — but for the third consecutive year, Evanston’s unpredictable spring could not stop Dillo Day.

Thunderstorms forced Mayfest to evacuate the Lakefill just before 4 p.m. Saturday. The inclement weather missed rapper Danny Brown’s set by minutes but suspended the music festival until about 8:30 p.m., when attendees were allowed to return to the Lakefill to see ’90s rock band Smash Mouth and rapper Wiz Khalifa play shortened performances on the muddy field.
