Flume took the stage at 9:45 p.m., igniting with hard-hitting electronic waves as he whipped out a pink can of spray paint, spelling out “Hi this is Flume” holding it up the screaming crowd. A melodic beat came on, as Flume welcomed collaborator slowthai onstage in his underwear for a electronic-hip hop collaboration off his newest mixtape release, Hi This Is Flume (Mixtape).
Beats Antique constantly strives for knowledge and experience in this world of new challenges, and it understands that we must look towards our past to understand the future. To do this, it is imperative to understand that music is a combination of imaginative invention and the foundation of those who came before us. Beats Antique’s newest single, “Sage,” speaks to this duality of having experience and searching for guidance to soar further.
Now, Let us not forget Lettuce's 2018 Lockn’ Music Festival Jerry Garcia Band set. Due to the overwhelming amount of hype and love that set received, Lettuce figured to give the people what they want and reprise that set at their Rage Rocks show. Clearly, an already amazing set, but just to amp it up, even more, they added the addition of legendary keyboardist Melvin Seals. Melvin Seals, long time Jerry Garcia Band member and what we all know as a pioneer to jam band music as we know it. His happy attitude made us all smile, and his charisma and chemistry with Lettuce was a perfect fit.
