After a wet and chilly first day of the 2017 Shaky Beats Festival, the temperatures stayed cool but the sun was out all day, and with exception of a little rain at the very end of the night, it was an absolutely perfect day to step out in your craziest outfit for a festival.
18 artists rocked the park all day long with Lost Seekers kicking things off on the Ponce de Leon stage at 2:30pm with a great DJ set. Next up, Young Bombs kicked off the main stage and delivered the goods in a big way, catching some air off of the deck tables and by the looks of it they were having a blast their entire set.
Haywyre’s set was a big favorite with the audience with a ton of great keyboard solos and stunning visuals. Slushii was also a huge hit on the main stage with a ton of people there to see him with their handmade signs and shirts. His energy was as big as his beats.
Although most of the acts clearly fell into the EDM category a few of the standout artists on Saturday were Rap artists. The Flatbush Zombies, lit up the stage with a fantastic set and Pouya, from Miami, basically took over festival for a little while by going out into the audience yelling “someone is going to die tonight and it’s going be me!” The pit went crazy.
Day 2 is in the books, and it was a great one.
