“It’s been awhile LA,” Harley Streten aka Flume said after a short opening sample. The sun was setting behind the main stage bathing the crowd in golden light and we could feel the heat slowly melt away off our skin. I didn’t know what to expect from Flume’s performance, everyone told me to get ready because it was going to be dope. With an absolutely packed crowd from the VIP, to the beer gardens, to back reaches of the pathways, EVERYONE was ready for what Flume was going to bring us.
He stunned and surpassed anything I could have imagined for one guy behind a table of tech gear and computers. The heavy bass pulsed and the crowd pulsed along with it. Screaming and holding beers and phones in the air giving a cheers to the music gods. We all got lost in our own personal worlds letting the music guide us. When Flume sampled Lorde’s “Tennis Court” the crowd yelled with excitement. Then when Lorde herself walked out on the stage to dance along with the remix the crowd lost their damn minds. Finally, the kick that Sunday needed had happened.
