Dillo Day brought students to the Lakefill on Saturday for a day of musical performances, food trucks and other fun activities, including cornhole and human-sized Jenga.
When the festival gates opened just after noon, students were already in line waiting, Mayfest co-chair Eliza Abramson said.
“It was really exciting to have people there from the start and continuing throughout the entire day,” the Communication senior said.
The festival’s main stage kicked off with a performance by student band The Syndicate, which earned a spot by winning Mayfest Battle of the Bands.
The first professional act to perform was The Mowgli’s, an alternative rock band. The group ended with its hit sing-along song “San Francisco.” Following The Mowgli’s, rapper and singer Anderson .Paak entertained students in the daytime headliner slot. During his set, the California singer hopped on a drum kit on stage left, jamming out with his band, The Free Nationals, and singing at the same time.
