Sweetlife Fest Recap: Day 2 Feat. The Weeknd, Vic Mensa, Goldlink, and More

Kendrick Lamar may have stole the show Day 1 of Sweetlife Festival, but  Day 2 was even better. The day started out with a performance from a plethora of talented DMV artists. Local DC artist Bishop Nehru stepped onto the Treetop Stage, with Goldlink following soon after. Goldlink surprised many by performing a brand new song with fellow DMV artist, Chaz French. Both artists have started to establish a national following through their different sounds, however, they both shared a cohesive chemistry on stage to rock the crowd. Raury also performed on the main stage, bringing his unique style of rock and hip hop to the festival. While many fans were patiently waiting for Vic Mensa to perform later that day, they were blessed with performances by the unique electronic duo Phantogram, who’s stellar performance for the soulfully-sampled song “Fall In Love” rocked the Columbia Merriweather Post-Pavillion. Although there were a ton of dope performances at Sweetlife, nothing was more crazier than Vic Mensa’s. The Chicago rapper was electrifying on stage for his first few songs, and than he turned up, literally. Dude was so crazy, not only did Mensa give out a bottle to the crowd, but he also jumped of stage and started to crowdsurf on them as well. The final day of Sweetlife ended with a dope set by The Weeknd. The Canadian singer went through his catalogue with several lights to make the setting more eerie. Check out some of photos, clips and social posts about the festival below.
