Saturday, the first full day of the festival, had two stages full of incredible indie-alternative bands. As per usual, the festival had a ton of free goodies upon walking through the gates, and scattered all around the venue from the various vendors. Towels, free samples, shopping bags, and phone chargers are just a few of the things that people had the chance of grabbing during the weekend. Two Feet opened up the main stage with a laid back set for the early comers. The Driver Era, DREAMERS, Bishop Briggs and Sir Sly kicked things off early on the Underground Stage, giving upbeat and energetic sets.
To shortly recapitulate a couple sets, DREAMERS’ frontman Nick Wold literally jumped on stage at the start of their performance, as per usual. Bishop Briggs kicked her set off a cappella, stunning the audience with her incredible abilities. Young the Giant closed out the Underground Stage with a dreamy set, where they performed songs old and new. And Sir Sly delivered another phenomenal festival set consisting of their best hits, and a new song. The main stage had a star-studded lineup, including lovelytheband, Robert DeLong, and headliners Panic! At The Disco. Panic! At The Disco performed in Sunrise just 4 months prior to the Riptide Music Festival, so seeing them in the South Florida area for the 2nd time so soon was a pleasant surprise. As usual, frontman Brendon Urie owned the stage and made the long wait for his set completely worth it with their incredible set.
