Electronic musician Hayden James played a DJ set after daytime headliner Anderson .Paak. The Australian DJ’s set included his popular song “Something About You.” Two student DJs from the music group Dial Up performed after James. The group won Mayfest Battle of the DJs last month.
The penultimate act on the main stage was EDM artist Cashmere Cat. The DJ spun his brand of stripped-down house music and remixes, including one of Miguel’s “Do You…”
Rapper ScHoolboy Q closed the festival, performing hits such as “Collard Greens” and “Man of the Year.” He closed his set by playing Kendrick Lamar’s “Alright” as the crowd jumped around and sang the refrain.
“We were thrilled with the performances,” Abramson said. “We thought all of the sets were really exciting and students seemed to be enjoying themselves.”
In addition to the main stage performances, more artists performed on the second stage, produced by WNUR. Between acts, students participated in activities around the Lakefill, including an escape room and a photo booth.
