The 5 Best Moments Of Firefly 2015 Saturday

The threat of rain hung heavy over Firefly’s third day. Guys in tank tops whispered it to their girlfriends while waiting in line for tacos. Strangers chatted each other up about it while awaiting the next free porta-potty. And then, at around 9:45, festival officials took the main stage to announce that the night’s remaining acts were canceled due to “inclement weather” — in other words, torrential downpours fierce enough to merit additional warnings to nearby campers. As a result, there was a huge Followill deficiency, as headliners Kings Of Leon couldn’t play at all, and neither could Steve Aoki. (Kid Cudi’s set got axed after only 20 minutes, too). Instead, stagehands rushed to pull plastic wrap over all instruments, amps, and other gear left out in the path of the storm. A general bummer for sure, but that’s not counting the onslaught of incredible acts who did take the stage Saturday before the thunderstorms hit. Here are five of them, listed chronologically.
