2:45 PM - Lil Skies
Considering his set was fairly early in the day and a lot of folks hadn't even made it to the festival yet, Lil Skies had one of the most turnt sets in the afternoon. Dude literally ran from side to side of the stage for the entire 45 minutes, and capped it off by bringing out Landon Cube and climbing up the stage scaffolding to perform "Red Roses."
Boogie's energetic set was incredibly dope due to the superb showmanship he gave to the crowd. The Shady Records signee went bar for bar, sometimes going for minutes straight acapella. He even performed a snippet of a new record before the DJ pulled the plug on that.
4:00 PM - SOB X RBE
SOB X RBE's performance can be described by one phrase and one phrase only: gang shit.
4:30 PM - Yung Pinch
Pinch's packed set brought straight beach vibes, as well as half of his hometown of Huntington Beach. Special guests included professional scammer Guapdad 4000 and Lil Skies.
In quite possibly the most exciting and unexpected turn of events, Young Thug ended up taking Trippie Redd's spot after the Ohio native canceled. The result was as mental as you would think. Shout out to Thugger for saving the day!
5:30 PM - Xavier Wulf
Another super turnt highlight would have to be Memphis Rapper Xavier Wulf. This man's set was so lit, he even had people jumping up and down through the five-plus minutes of technical difficulties during his performance.
To be quite honest, Lil Pump went full "ESSSKETITTTT," keeping shit jumping throughout his 45-minute set.
6:45 PM - Blocboy JB
Though Wiz Khalifa was the main attraction for Day One, all eyes were on Blocboy JB, and for good reason. He had the wildest, craziest, and most choreographed set of the day, hands down. We got a picture of him mid "Shoot" dance and we have come to the conclusion that it's our biggest and best accomplishment in life. Seriously, peep the graceful kinetics of Blocboy JB's signature dance.
If there is one thing Mr. Tauheed Epps knows how to do, it's put on a show. And that's exactly what he did during his set early Saturday evening. It's like dude is a Rap Juggernaut because he literally will not stop. He performed literally everything from his newest joints, from "Proud" to old-school classics like "I'm Different" & "Duffel Bag Boy."
8:30 PM - Schoolboy Q
Between him clowning his DJ and likening his facial structure to a deer and making fun of the crowd for being "high as fuck," Schoolboy Q's set was funny as hell. He definitely still brought the heat though.
10:00 PM - Wiz Khalifa
Day 1 was capped off by headlining performer Wiz Khalifa, who held it down with an adapted version of Kush & OJ. He performed the entire mixtape from top to bottom, even reaching in his bag for the Cabin Fever mixtape, where he proceeded to share the stage with Big Sean for a song or two. To say that this was lit would be an understatement. This was without a doubt some Taylor Gang or Die shit.
